Presumably fed up with all the silly variants of his real name that the internet kept coming up with, Benedict Cumberbatch made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to try out some new names.
"Not only is Benedict Cumberbatch a very gifted actor, his name might be the greatest name ever given to a human being," gushes Jimmy. "But what if he wasn’t named Benedict Cumberbatch? Would he have the same amount of gravitas and charisma?"
Well, it's apparently hit or miss. Benedict can make the most mundane alter-ego seem charming and seductive...
...but sometimes, a name just straight-up can't save you.
But there's always room to get a little weirder.
(Possible nod to the MCU there in honour of his casting as Dr. Strange, nice touch).
