I am a fan.
Benedict Cumberbatch is a striking actor with a unique appearance and good speaking voice. I especially liked his character in Star Trek (Khan), which was a nice counterpoint to the original performance by Ricardo Montalban. His Screen credits can be seen on IMDB.
This does not mean that every role he plays is automatically my favorite; I am hoping he has a long career and his fame will allow him roles that highlight his strong points; many actors take roles (sometimes ANY role, if you are hungry for work) and risk getting typecast. Cumberbatch turned down the role of Dr. Who, partly for that reason (and the off-screen commitment to be “The Doctor”). Nicolas Cage, by comparison, hardly turns down a role – which keeps him working, but often has him working in obscure “B” movies. Cumberbatch is clearly cherry-picking his roles, and focusing on his strengths.

Khan’s impassioned speech, well worth watching (from “Star Trek into Darkness” – Movie available on Amazon)
Live long and prosper, Mr. Cumberbatch!
