See Benedict Cumberbatch do a mean Jar Jar Binks impression

In between bursts of laughter at the very suggestion of doing it, Benedict Cumberbatch lets loose an excellent impression of the world's least favorite "Star Wars" character.

England's lovable geek Benedict Cumberbatch is a man of many talents. He's a skilled actor on stage and screen, most prominently with his portrayals of Sherlock Holmes in the BBC's "Sherlock" reboot and as Hamlet in the Barbican Theatre's production, which opens in August 2015. He's also a good voice actor, as evidenced by his work as Smaug and the Necromancer in "The Hobbit" trilogy.

These latter skills were prominently displayed in a recent interview with MTV's Josh Horowitz in which Cumberbatch channeled his inner "Star Wars" fan by performing a crazy-good impression of Jar Jar Binks, the most hated "Star Wars" character ever. It's actually pretty scary how good a Gungan Cumberbatch would make. Fortunately for us, though, we almost certainly won't be seeing Ben Ben Cumberbinks in Episode VII, which will hopefully feature zero Gungans, okee day?

You can check out Cumberbatch's Binks impression for yourself in the video at the top of this post, and you can watch the full interview on YouTube.
