Benedict Cumberbatch plays the role of Julian Assange in the upcoming film The Fifth Estate…
“The question is whether Julian Assange, or rather Benedict Cumberbatch’s interpretation of him, qualifies as “creepy.”
“As portrayed by a bleached-blond, beady-eyed Cumberbatch in “The Fifth Estate,” which opens Friday, the controversial WikiLeaks founder is intense, eccentric, even maniacal.
“The actor is OK with any of those adjectives; just don’t call Assange the “c” word.
“That might just be the combination of my physical appearance, with me trying to look like him,” says Cumberbatch, a blend of otherworldly facial features both unsettling and hot-alien handsome… “I don’t think he’s that creepy in real life.” – Boston Globe
