An excellent choice hope the role goes to him.
He’d definitely bring in people who wouldn’t otherwise watch so that’d be good in publicising Alan Turing’s story.
That is: Yes! finally there will be a movie about Alan Turing, a truly great Briton who was hideously betrayed.
And also, Yes! I love Mr Cumberbatch.
Love Cumberbatch’s acting! I think a big-screen Turing story has the potential to really take off in this country if it is well produced and has some big names on board.
British audiences like World War II related films and I think there is also a strong interest in the country’s scientific heritage.
I’ve read Turing’s biography numerous times – will definitely pay to see the this biopic if they get it finished. :)
Russell Tovey would be much better.
good actor, totally wrong for the role…have to agree with the last guy, Tovey all the way!
Tovey looks more like Turing but Cumberbatch is a much interesting actor.
