Benedict Cumberbatch Reveals He Was Once Abducted in South Africa

Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch has opened up about being abducted in South Africa eight years ago in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Cumberbatch and two friends had been driving back to the set of To the Ends of the Earth north of Durban when car troubles put their journey on pause. "It was cold, and it was dark. I felt rotten. We were wary because that's a notoriously dangerous place to drive. Then, poof, the front-right tire blows," Cumberbatch recalled. "So we got the spare, but that meant getting all of our luggage out. We were like sitting ducks, adverts for -- not prosperity necessarily but materialism."

Ask Matt: RIP Bunheads and The Glades, Plus Downton, Fall TV Promos and More

The Crazy Ones

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: Recently, Amy Sherman-Palladino gathered some of the cast to film a goodbye dance to the much-beloved ABC Family series Bunheads. I admit it, watching it made me a little misty. I wish more creators respected their fans and casts enough to provide such closure. Do you think such series codas will, or should, become more common? Also, do you think they are a good or bad thing for fans and show runners? Meaning: Does it just prolong the fans' agony of letting a favorite show go by keeping them hoping for one more taste and, on the creative side, label creators as undesirable to work with if they're unable to let their failed ideas go, potentially preventing them from getting future projects produced because no one just wants a copy of something that didn't work elsewhere?
