Hot Guys in Doublets: Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch?

Like the BBC's Sherlock Holmes?

He doesn't wear a doublet. (See below for proof)

and then that one time he wore that mock turtle neck with some sort of insignia
(who's excited for this movie to come out?)

No doublet in that period film
(mustaches don't count as doublets)

And even in that period television series.
No doublet.
(That would be called a tuxedo.)


Because he's in the Sharp Dressed Man video.

What? No he's not!


That's him with Ioan Gruffudd
(Who happened to be my first Hot Guys in Doublet HERE)
not in Horatio Hornblower like I thought at first
(I know, silly Shelly)
but in 

I loved that movie the first time I saw it
but neither Ioan or Benedict's names meant much to me back then.

Here they are in Amazing Grace

But Shelly, neither one of them are wearing a doublet
I cheat.
I count cravats.
Does anyone have a problem with that?

Plus, look at this wig and tights they made the man wear.

That's gotta get him on the list somewhere.

Here he is when they just makes his real hair look like a wig.

But he's still a good lookin' fella.

He's a talent actor and getting a lot of work right now.
He has four films coming out this year.
A whole batch.
You could say a

Yeah, yeah.
You knew I was silly when you started reading.


  1. *dies* This is awesome. I loved Horatio but never saw Amazing Grace. I may have to check it out.

    And now he's Kahn. How cool is that?

  2. Oh, no. I didn't see him in the video. I'll have to watch it again. And again. And again... ;)

  3. This never fails to make me smile. Love Cumberbatch in Sherlock. And it's always fun when you go back and look at old movies and recognize a now famous face.

  4. When I started watching Sherlock at my parents house my dad said he knew Benedict and we figured out it was Amazing Grace. My mom once said "he looks like a mannequin with those sharp cheek bones." My brother Brett asked if I caught him in The Hobbit, I didn't realize he was the necromancer

  5. Mmm, love him SOO much. I'm so glad you count cravats. ;)
