Actor Benedict Cumberbatch reveals Bond videogame audition

23-May-2013 • Gaming

The Star Trek and Sherlock star admitted to the media recently that he had the opportunity to play Bond in a recent videogame, but blew the audition. He appeared at the audition and found himself surrounded by suited, middle-aged actors.

"I once got the chance to play James Bond in a computer game. But when I got to the audition there were men in their late 40s in dinner jackets there. I went in casual wear," Benedict Cumberbatch admitted.

"I thought I would shake it up though and I started to dive over sofas and do all the gun poses and I did not get a call. I am still waiting."
