Benedict Cumberbatch Tells Us What Smaug’s Favorite Music is in Twitter Interview

In a cute, short Twitter interview, Benedict Cumberbatch gave answers to fan questions to promote the upcoming Hobbit film. While all of his reponses were charming as usual, we were particularly tickled when he was asked what sort of music Smaug favored:

“Liberace. A little bit of Burt Bacharach. And Enya.”

That is one sparkle-tastic answer. There are more of them over at Cumberbatchweb, where you can see his answers to questions about Martin Freeman, motion capture dots versus neutron cream, and whether he would prefer to fly or breathe fire. Check it out!
