Benedict Cumberbatch is a pretty cool name. Actually, I wish it were my name. In fact, it seems impossible not to succeed in life with the name Benedict Cumberbatch. To wit: Benedict Cumberbatch -- star of 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,' 'War Horse' and the BBC series 'Sherlock' -- has now been cast in J.J. Abrams' sequel to 'Star Trek,' a movie that could be called anything except 'Star Trek 2.' What will Cumberbatch's likely villainous character be named in the 2013 sequel? How do you give an actor called Benedict Cumberbatch a name that is better than the one he already has? Let's give it a try!
