Hi, Geny! Do you happen to know why Benedict wore (basically) the same outfit at all of his OzCon panels? I just thought you might happen to have heard the reasoning behind it. I hope you enjoy your next couple of days off.
thank you, I will :)
from the panel on the 13th fan: “Why do you always wear the same shirt?” BC: “Because I have the luxury of being in hotels with [?] dry cleaning. […] And I don’t want to make people jealous that they got photographs of me in lots of different shirts when they like one shirt more than another. So I’ve tried to [stick to these two shirts for these two shows.]" <— not entirely sure on the wording of the ’’ bit.

My kingdom for a Holmes: detective duo both play Richard III
Cumberbatch and Freeman are the latest in a line of distinguished actors to tackle the role
IT IS the mysterious case of Sherlock Holmes and their parallel careers: Benedict Cumberbatch is to star as Richard III in a television film while Martin Freeman is preparing to play the hunchback king on stage.Cumberbatch, who has appeared as Holmes in three series of the BBC drama Sherlock, has been cast as the last Plantagenet ruler in a film to be shown on BBC2 next year. Freeman, who plays Dr Watson, will portray the monarch in London from July.
As well as appearing together in Sherlock, both actors also star in the Hobbit trilogy — Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Cumberbatch as the voice of the dragon Smaug. The two actors, who are close in real life, play unlikely yet devoted friends in Sherlock. Cumberbatch’s Holmes is a seemingly emotionless obsessive while Freeman’s Watson, a war veteran, is his fiercely loyal but often exasperated foil.
