Question: What’s better than Benedict Cumberbatch on a sofa? Answer: Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Pine on a sofa. In your living room.
Yes, following last week’s news that the Sherlock actor will be appearing on The Graham Norton Show on Friday 3 May, producers have today revealed that he will be joined by Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Chris Pine.
The sci-fi sequel sees Cumberbatch as chilling new villain John Harrison, taking on Pine’s Captain James T Kirk in a battle that wrecks the USS Enterprise and destroys half of London. Thankfully, the pair are good friends in real life so the sofa action is likely to be a lot more cordial.
Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall and this year’s British Eurovision hopeful Bonnie Tyler will also be along for the ride.
