Star Trek actor wants a 'Daniel Craig moment'
Benedict Cumberbatch would love to play an action hero.
‘I’d love to transform my body into some ridiculous war machine,’ says Benedict, 36.
‘I want to run around a desert shooting guns at aliens and looking as if I barely have to take a breath.
‘I would love to do all that sh*t. I definitely want my Daniel Craig moment!’
Benedict got a taste for being a muscly action star after he embarked on a punishing fitness regime for his role in Star Trek.
‘Star Trek is, to all intents and purposes, an action movie as much as it is a sci-fi drama, so that involved a hell of a lot of training and long hours,’ he tells TV Magazine.
‘I had to put weight on, so I’d eat 4,000 calories a day. I went up four suit sizes at one point – it was hard work but a lot of fun.’
