Benedict Cumberbatch Wasn't Familiar With 'Doctor Strange'

Benedict Cumberbatch looks dapper in blue while attending the GEANCO Foundation’s 2016 Hollywood Fundraiser Gala at Spectra by Wolfgang Puck at the Pacific Design Center on Friday (October 21) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 40-year-old actor recently opened up about his role in Doctor Strange.

“I wasn’t familiar with Doctor Strange as a child, not at all,” Benedict told U.K.’s The Guardian. “So it’s been a fast catch-up. But like all comics in their origination, they’re very much tied into the era that they were born in, and so, you know, this one came about in an era of psychedelics and experimental drugs.”

Meanwhile, in case you missed the news, Benedict is set to host Saturday Night Live on November 5!
