In continuing support for his Marvel movie Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch is making the rounds for both the press circuit and talk shows. The latest stop took him to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in which the title host and his guest participated in a fun round of Mad Lib Theater. It’s easily my favorite of Fallon’s many skits on the show, and it comes as a good warm-up for Cumberbatch’s upcoming hosting gig of his own. He’ll lead the improv cast of Saturday Night Live this coming Saturday night on NBC’s last episode before Election Day.
Scott Derrickson, who co-wrote the script with C. Robert Cargill and Jon Spaihts, directs Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange, a surgeon who loses the use of his hands in a car accident and searches for a cure, which brings him into contact with The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). Strange learns the ways of the mystics before an ultimate confrtontation against the villainous Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen). Also starring Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Benedict Wong, Doctor Strange is playing theaters now.
