No Star Wars & Doctor Who For Benedict Cumberbatch

Body

Fan-favorite actor Benedict Cumberbatch makes it clear that both Star Wars and Doctor Who are not in his future.

Cumberbatch, who played Khan for J.J. Abrams in Star Trek Into Darkness, has been rumored for Star Wars: Episdoe VII and has been a talk amongst fans to play the Doctor at some point.

Now while attending the Oz Comic-Con in Australia, during a Q & A, Benedict Cumberbatch says no to them (via Twitter).

 I would’ve liked a part in JJ’s new Star Wars but it won’t happen sadly.

I'll never play the Doctor - and nothing to do with the Whoniverse.
