Watch Simon Pegg trick the cast of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ with ‘Neutron Cream’

On the set of Star Trek Into Darkness, Simon Pegg (Scotty) tricked his fellow actors into using a fictional “Neutron Cream” when entering the “laser room.” Worth watching for Benedict Cumberbatch’s response.

Leaked footage of the wedding from the new series of ‘Sherlock’?

With news of a wedding in the next series of Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, that fine “purveyor of internet whimsy,” Red Scharlach has leaked some “exclusive footage” of the nuptials, as she explains on her Tumblr Blog:

OMG, I’ve discovered some EXCLUSIVE LEAKED FOOTAGE from season 3 of Sherlock! I know that some of you are technically avoiding spoilers, but I thought that this was IMPORTANT FANDOM NEWS and you’d want to know about it IMMEDIATELY. Just don’t let Moffat and Gatiss hear about it. They might get annoyed that we know their secret plan.

(Alternatively, the whole thing may just be a sloppily constructed fake based on a famous movie scene. I’ll let you make up your own minds…)

O, they do make such a lovely couple, and I wish them all happiness in their life together.

Excellent drama on Stephen Hawking, starring Benedict Cumberbatch


Before he struck mass market appeal as Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch proved his exceptional talents as Stephen Hawking in this classy BBC film from 2004. Written by Peter Moffatt, and directed by Philip Martin, Hawking tells the story of the scientist’s early years at university, examining his relationships, his work and the onset of the motor neurone disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Cumberbatch is wonderfully supported by John Sessions, Lisa Dillon and Peter Firth as a grumpy Sir Fred Hoyle, the renowned scientist and author of the classic sci-fi work The Black Cloud.

More Hawking, after the jump…
