My small wish: Benedict and Martin filming a cop movie. I want Benedict as a new, enthusiastic stubborn cop and Martin as a bad dirty cop. They hate each other at first but soon realize they’re actually good partners.
“I narrowly missed out on a job [in 2006] in London
playing the youngest PM in Britain, William Pitt, [in ‘Amazing Grace’]. I did a really good audition
and I worked really hard to get the job.
The director ummed and ahhed on me for weeks. Finally, he said, ‘My issue with Joel is that
he doesn’t strike me as blue-blooded enough.'…When he looked at me, I
didn’t seem like the upper class, silver spoon type. Inside, I was like, 'No, no, I can be that!’“
So anyway, then I get to [casting] 'The Square’ and I had this realisation. There’s this thing I refer to as the - You Are
The Guy Or You Are Not The Guy - and I realised when I was dealing with this
director in London that I just wasn’t The Guy.
If I was the only guy in contention, I could’ve been The Guy and I
could’ve done a good job, but because there was another person in the frame
(Benedict Cumberbatch) that was more The Guy than I was The Guy…Well, now I’ve completely given up all
those feelings of, ‘Arghhh!’ because if
I was the director, I would’ve picked the other guy too!”

Glasses are cool!!!!! And men look sexy as hell wearing them.
Glasses have these magical powers of sexiness… that even when you are about to take them off, or when you are in a silly get up, or when you aren’t even wearing them you are accessorizing with them, or when your old and no one really knows your age and you continue to defy age and woman’s abilities to keep their panties on with your glasses or when you are in Vogue, or when you are a normally hot guy they can make you hotter…
Basically all occasions are good occasions for glasses. Now Finish drinking your tea Benedict because you look adorable as sin.
a steven liar: nervous glasses twirling
a mark liar: nervous ear scratching
a sue liar: stoneface
an amanda liar: not in frame
a benedict liar: locked in your hotel room
a martin liar: not even allowed out of the country
