Here’s the full video from The Hollywood Reporter’s Round table interview:
In THR’s annual actor roundtable, this season’s six top awards contenders — including Ethan Hawke, Michael Keaton, Eddie Redmayne and Timothy Spall — open up about why a Hollywood film is preferable to a classical theater role (“Stick Polonius straight up your arse”), flunking out of college and how a meeting with Stephen Hawking turned into the equivalent of a ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit

Marvel Studios has just officially announced that, as has been long suspected, Benedict Cumberbatch will headline director Scott Derickson’s Marvel Studios Phase Three film, Doctor Strange!
Scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016, Doctor Strange is scripted by Jon Spaihts and is said to follow the story of neurosurgeon, Dr. Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.
“Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity,” says Producer Kevin Feige. “In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.”
Cumberbatch rose to international prominence with his critically acclaimed turn as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous creation in “Sherlock,” currently preparing its fourth season. The series’ most recent season earned Cumberbatch the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie in 2014, after winning the BAFTA/LA Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year in 2013.
Cumberbatch most recently starred in The Imitation Game, playing famed mathematician and logician Alan Turing, and will soon be seen in The Hobbit: The Army of the Five Armies as both Smaug and the Necromancer. For the role of Smaug, Cumberbatch stepped into the world of motion capture to bring the dragon to life. He will next be seen in Scott Cooper’s film Black Mass, the story of Whitey Bulger coming to theaters next September, where he stars opposite Johnny Depp and Joel Edgerton.
With “Doctor Strange,” Cumberbatch is just the latest actor to join the bold Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, introducing new heroes and continuing the adventures of fan favorites across multiple films.
