Fans of the well spoken, nicely presented, thoroughly respectable Benedict Cumberbatch may want to look away. This exclusive outtake from Sherlock shows he has a bit of a potty mouth.
Although the blooper is bleeped, Cumberbatch is clearly riled up by trivia questions from his co-star Martin Freeman. When Benedict admits he has never heard of a particular actor, Freeman shoots back “I assumed you’d probably been christened by him. I thought you knew every actor over 50. I thought there was a by-law.”
Needless to say, filming has to be stopped due to laughter.
The clip, seen first on RadioTimes.com, was released to promote Sherlock: The Complete Collection Limited Edition Gift Set. As well as featuring all three series of Sherlock on Blu-Ray and DVD, the gift set also includes these attractive busts of Holmes and Watson.
Look into the eyes of mini-Sherlock, Benedict. He’s so disappointed in your language.
