Benedict Cumberbatch, the patron saint of Tumblr, has been making the rounds promoting his new film, the Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game. During an interview with MTV, the man whose name has inspired a thousand limericks was challenged to do as many celebrity impressions as possible to sell his movie in 60 seconds. Cumberbatch more or less succeeds in delivering 11 pretty spot on imitations, though Christopher Walken proves something of a personal Reichenbach Fall. This video continues the grand, if nascent, tradition of British geek icons displaying great versatility in doing impressions of other beloved actors.
