In a new interview with the Associated Press [via Seattle Times] after the special IMAX presentation of the Star Trek: Into Darkness footage, Benedict Cumberbatch reveals that he’s following in the footsteps of his ‘great friend’ Tom Hiddleston by playing a bad guy in a Hollywood blockbuster.

When talking about the great tradition of playing English baddies, Cumberbatch says, “I’m following in the very hallowed footsteps of (Jeremy) Irons, (Alan) Rickman and Tom Hiddleston, my great friend in this summer’s “Avengers.” There are a few of us who have done it before, it stretches back as old as time. They get excited about these actors with theater training who can do stuff. It’s hugely flattering, but you’re not going to see me do a whole raft of villains after this.
 
He also talks about watching himself on screen, and says, “I always get incredibly nervous, especially on an empty stomach having only had a macchiato. It makes your heart beat a lot faster and I don’t like it. I look away when it’s me, I don’t like being my own audience. It’s very weird. ... You probably saw my nostril hairs, counted how many pores I’ve got on my nose and which one of my teeth is wonky.”

When talking about how he celebrated his recent Golden Globe nomination for his work in ‘Sherlock’, he says, “I went out with my niece, who is my PA (personal assistant), Emily, and we got papped (followed by paparazzi) to the point that I couldn’t actually see and I had to put my head down and just blink a couple of times. I was trying to get in the car with her and so immediately they presume, ‘ah, beautiful blonde.’ Poor girl, she’s never experienced that before — I’ve never experienced that — like 15 of them hanging off the bonnet of the car.”
