We knew Benedict Cumberbatch was talented, but it seems like he’s got a lot of hidden skills as well. In his latest stunt, he showed off his vocal abilities by jamming out with David Gilmour, formerly of Pink Floyd.
Cumberbatch was attending Gilmour’s concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London when he popped onstage and took up a microphone. He ended up singing Roger Waters’ part on the song “Comfortably Numb” off the hit album, The Wall.
Of course, one of Benedict Cumberbatch’s most notorious roles is Sherlock Holmes in the hit BBC series Sherlock. Cumberbatch’s work as the modern day super sleuth majorly helped boost his star power, earning him place on many homes’ Netflix queues and in fans’ hearts.
The release of season four of Sherlock is on the horizon, but what will happen after that? Some people took Cumberbatch’s comments about season four feeling like an “end of an era” to mean that this would be the end of the series. However, writer Steven Moffat says that’s not the case.
“[Benedict Cumberbatch] actually says he’s very keen to carry on playing Sherlock Holmes,” Moffat said. “It’s the clickbait era turning something that was nothing at all into a story.”
Phew! Ever since Sherlock first aired in 2010, it’s been one of our most anticipated Benedict Cumberbatch projects, even if we do have to routinely wait two years between seasons. At least he keeps doing crazy things like singing Pink Floyd songs on stage in the meantime to help us get our fix.
