It's actually a little strange with how quickly Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch became a household name. A few years ago, I didn't know who he was, and you probably didn't either. Now, he's been given starring roles in two of the biggest franchises out there, Star Trek and The Hobbit. That's not to say he doesn't deserve it, his performance in Star Trek Into Darkness was so powerful it helped people forget that movies many flaws. Here's one more franchise he might play a role in.
Star Wars. Numerous source, include Ain't It Cool News and Film Chronicles are reporting on the news, saying they have "reliable sources". Ain't it Cool in particular says that they are "about 90% certain Benedict Cumberbatch will play a Sith in EPISODE VII.".
