#Cumberwatch - Benedict Cumberbatch Discusses Episode VII Rumors on Conan

By: Dominic Jones

One of our favorites here, Benedict Cumberbatch went on Conan last night to promote his upcoming film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and naturally the topic of JJ Abrams and Star Wars came up.   When asked by Conan if he had been lobbying JJ for a part in the film Cumberbatch replied, "I would just leave really causal messages on his phone as a lightsaber".  He went on to describe how he "auditioned" for the role of Chewbacca during his recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show (with Harrison Ford).

You can watch the episode with Cumberbatch (Star Wars talk begins at about 20 minutes in) here (in the U.S) and here (in Canada).
