Benedict Cumberbatch Shocks Harrison Ford With Chewbacca Impression (Video)
  |  @   |  

Sherlock and Star Trek Into Darkness star Benedict Cumberbatch made an appearance this weekend on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show, where he talked to the host about his recent role as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate, which opened in theaters this past Friday.

On the talk show, it came up that Cumberbatch, who also voices the dragon Smaug in Peter Jackson’s upcoming The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, is very good at doing impressions, for real people and for fictional characters, including for Chewbacca, the Wookie from the Star Wars saga. Cumberbatch then did an impression of Chewbacca while sitting right next to Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, who had a look of shock on this face, as if he’d been transported back to a galaxy far, far away!

Check out the video of the moment here below, along with a video where Norton asks the actors if they’re in the new Star Wars film.

The results, as you might have guessed, are pretty hilarious…especially when his old friend Chewbacca gets involved. Continue below now to watch the video.
