August: Osage County

Benedict is in talks to talk part in the movie August: Osage County

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/benedict-cumberbatch-sherlock-meryl-streep-julia-roberts-365235

Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts co-star. That's MERYL STREEP & JULIA ROBERTS, people, two of the biggest movie stars around.  Can't get much better than that.

First thing I did was go to Wikipedia to find out about the play. It sounds like one of those classic family-get-together-where-secrets-are-revealed stories, but it did win a Pulitzer Prize, so it is presumably well-written. Here is the Wikipedia link for those who don't mind spoilers

Re: August: Osage County

"Unemployed and clumsy" - er, would that be Benedict's part? But then we know how versatile he is.

*sees a montage of 'he doesn't get paid for this' (working for the Yard) and Sherlock falling in and out of bed*

So Benedict will basically play Sherlock in a crossover show? awesome! lol

Re: August: Osage County

While searching for a good-morning-pic I found this German article.
It's from "Neue Presse", a local newspaper in Hanover. Just few km from where I live. Finally it's coming nearer...

Re: August: Osage County

That's great, Mattlocked. Maybe he'll finally get the recognition he deserves so we won't be an exotic species anymore (which can be quite nice though).

Re: August: Osage County

Oooh, I'm sorry. I saw that play on Broadway and didn't enjoy it that much. Would be fun to hear one of Bennie's American accents, though.

Re: August: Osage County

Ewan McGregor has been confirmed as also being in this film. Brilliant!

Re: August: Osage County

Oh, wow! Good for him
He's so successful now, it makes me proud.

Now I'm so cumberbatched, in the German article Mattlocked posted there is this photo gallery of Kate and William on the right side and I accidentally read "Spekulationen um Babybatch"  ...

Re: August: Osage County

I didn't stalk him. Or do you think I took that picture? If only.

Dare we hope--- his natural hair color?  TPTB didn't make him that stupid unfortunate blond color again, thank GOD. Or slick his hair down with goop.

AN AMERICAN ACCENT??  Be still, my heart. I cannot believe this. I can't wait to hear/see how he does in this one. Lots and lots of Big Stars in this movie, which is bound to get all kinds of attention here in the States anyway. Yay! Good for Ben's career.

Re: August: Osage County

Very interested to hear his American accent as well If it's a Southern accent...oh god. I don't care for the American accent but Southern is the worst - no offense if anyone has one.
