Benedict Cumberbatch Bulking Up For Star Trek Role

By on January 17, 2012

Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch has admitted that he is working out non stop in order to get ready for JJ Abrams’ next Star Trek movie.

In a red carpet interview with MTV’s Josh Horrowitz during the Golden Globes on Sunday, the Sherlock and War Horse star joked ‘I’m really really really angsty about there being food in there because I’ve been working out non stop. I’ll need a protein fix pretty soon after talking to you!

Cumberbatch deflected the presumption that he has signed on to play the movie’s villain. “I don’t think we do know that,” he said of the role. “I think that’s just supposition. That’s all I’m going to say on it.

Cumberbatch starts work on the project this week. We think he’ll be fabulous.
