“The role of the egotistical, selfish and materialistic US neurosurgeon was really intriguing” Benedict explained (via BBC). “There were so many pulls for me. The other one really was the element of being an action hero and being an American lead in a film of this size, which was obviously a huge deal for me career-wise.”
