Happy new year, everyone!

Benedict Cumberbatch is featured on the December issue of Vogue Magazine, here are scans, and the article:
His Oscar-tipped performance in The Imitation Game is just the latest of Benedict Cumberbatch’s brilliant, versatile roles to win him an ecstatic following.
“I really, really love my job,” says Benedict Cumberbatch in the lush baritone that is one of his trademarks. “I love sets. I love crews. I love theaters. I love audiences.”
On this cool, oyster-gray London afternoon, the 38-year-old actor is a ray of sunshine. It’s a rare day off from his starring role as Richard III in the BBC’s Shakespeare series The Hollow Crown. He has already taken a robust morning run through Hampstead Heath (“I just love the look of the trees and the smell of the wood smoke”), and now, relaxed in a gray knit sweater and claret-hued jeans, he’s indulging himself with a lunchtime Bloody Mary and, though he’s been telling himself to avoid cholesterol, a main course of salt-and-pepper pork belly.
He has every reason to give himself a treat. After all, this is his time—the Cumberbatch Moment. Not only is his new film, The Imitation Game, a front-runner for the Academy Award (it won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival, a traditional bellwether), but he himself is a surefire Best Actor nominee for his touching, slyly funny performance as Alan Turing, a real-life genius who helped save England during World War II only to die alone and forgotten, a prophet without honor in his own land.
These days, everyone seems to want Benedict Cumberbatch. He stars opposite Johnny Depp in the upcoming crime drama Black Mass, is shooting a new season of Sherlock in 2015, and next summer will headline a production of Hamlet at the Barbican that is already the fastest-selling show in London history—it sold out 100,000 tickets in minutes. This is actually no surprise. Thanks to the Sherlock juggernaut, Cumberbatch has become a whole new kind of international heartthrob, one whose sexiness is defined by his intelligence. When The Imitation Game premiered in Toronto and London, his appearance was greeted by hundreds of screaming girls and women bearing posters they’d painted of him. “I haven’t seen that kind of female adulation since Orlando Bloom,” marvels Cumberbatch’s friend and costar Keira Knightley. “I didn’t expect that level of hysteria, but it’s wonderful.” Continue reading
