Benedict Cumberbatch Won’t Appear in Star Wars: Episode VII

We were hearing for a while and sometimes it was almost confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will appear in the new Star Wars movie but Australian site The Iris (via Metro) was present for a Q&A session with actor Benedict Cumberbatch at Oz Comic-Con where the actor shot down any hopes that he might appear in Star Wars: Episode VII.

“I would’ve liked a part in JJ’s new Star Wars but it won’t happen sadly,” the actor reportedly said, before also shooting down any potential appearances in the BBC series “Doctor Who.”

I for one is deeply sadden with the news, We were really hoping that he will star in the movie and give us some taste of that British brilliance in face expressions and timing of his dialogue deliveries.
