Morning Roundup: Cumberbatch and Smith Speak in Unison

The only thing Matt Smith doesn’t have going for him is a name like Cumberbatch. This is really his only deficiency. If he could somehow get a more absurd name, there’s a chance their coolness would be equal. But, the recent joint BAFTA award presented by Cumberbatch and Smith makes you realize just how cool they both are. Above is just one image from their badass time spent together. Full video below the cut, along with all of you awesome offsite links.

Today’s highlights include:

  1. The New Yorker asked its Twitter followers to sum up Star Wars in 140 characters.
  2. Michael Dorn claims he was almost in the new Star Trek movie.
  3. MIB3 attempts to erase...MIB3.

Every day Stubby the Rocket jets around the internet looking for links of interest. When Stubby finds these links, they get put in our handy Links of Interest section and sometimes on our Twitter and Facebook!  Here’s today’s selection:

Star Trek

Doctor Who

Game of Thrones


Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com. Stubby’s changed its middle name from “the” to “Cumberbatch.” Cumberbatch. Is. Cool.

On the plus side, "Matt Smith" is such a generic, common human name. Deceptively so. Almost as if it was carefully selected by an inhuman entity in an attempt to blend in with your species...

Anyone else think Cumberbatch will be the next Doctor?

Inn at the Crossroads got a cookbook? Shame this means some of their stuff was taken off their blog, but I'm definitely up for buying that.

@Jammrock: I saw a video of Cumberbatch on a chat show one time, in which he said that he would not want to play the Doctor because the actor who plays the Doctor gets too much attention in his daily life -- he has to be ready to improv the character for children at any time. And he's just not up for that.

It was actually Moffat, Cumberbatch and Sue Vertue at the Marvel offices, not just the first two. (You can see her in some of the photos towards the end of the post, and she's mentioned in the text but not the title.)
