As it turns out, Benedict is just as quirky and hilarious as he seems. And, undoubtedly British as well, as Bruhl told the Post-Gazette in an interview. "The first time I met him in London, it was hysterical," he said. "Before he said 'hi,' he could tell me what I had for breakfast, that I'm left-handed, that I was trying to quit smoking, and he even had a recommendation of how to better clean my shirts." Think of Benedict Cumberbatch as an amateur Sherlock Holmes, if you will, with Bruhl playing his Watson during Estate's filming.
Of course, just because Cumberbatch is making the most of the headlines surrounding the movie's release, that doesn't mean Bruhl is simply waiting in the wings. The actor is preparing to take on Hollywood full force — he's even set to star in the upcoming adaptation of John Le Carré's A Most Wanted Man. You can bet we'll be keeping an eye out.
