Benedict Cumberbatch looks set to get behind the wheel soon following the reports that he will soon be making a guest appearance on BBC's Top Gear.
Despite being busy with work, including filming scenes for the new series of Sherlock, Benedict will take time out of his hectic work schedule to take on the challenge called 'Star In A Reasonably Priced Car' set by Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May where he will be seen driving round a lap.
We'll be tuning in for that!
Speaking about Benedict's impending appearance on the show, the Mirror claimed a source saying: "It's great to have Benedict on the show and no doubt he'll want to do better than his Star Trek co-star Simon Pegg, who joined us in 2011.”
Whilst he may have been chosen for Top Gear, Benedict has reportedly admitted that he has missed out on playing the role of a "pin up" guy in the past because of his looks.
The actor, who has amassed a firm following of fans from his roles as Sherlock and a number of films, including Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy and Star Trek Into Darkness, is quoted by Now to have told TV magazine as quoted recently that whilst he knows his looks have been the reason for him not getting parts, he's not too bothered by it.
