Smaug…Khan…The Grinch? Benedict Cumberbatch Lands Iconic Role!
Days after the first ‘Doctor Strange‘ trailer is released, we now have news Benedict Cumberbatch will be starring in a new film. This time he will be going to Who-ville as he will be playing The Grinch in a 2017 animated movie.
‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas‘ is a classic Dr. Seuss book debuting in 1957. Since then, we have had two Christmas specials; one being the 1966 animated TV-movie & a 2000 live-action film starring Jim Carrey.
How will Cumberbatch fare as the titular Grinch? His voice acting as Smaug was out of this world so I hope he can bring a little of that to this Christmas classic. Also, how will the paper-thin story of The Grinch who stole Christmas translate to a feature animated film. Carrey’s marvelous Grinch padded the live-action run time but will Benedict Cumberbatch be able to do that?
‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas‘ is set to hit theaters on Nov. 10, 2017. Will you be seeing it?
