New 'Collider' video interview with Benedict Cumberbatch about his role as Smaug Can't Post

Hello all. I've long enjoyed visiting this website, and thought I'd finally take the chance to join in!

Of course I come bearing gifts. Here's a new interview with Benedict Cumberbatch where he talks about his preparation for the upcoming role of Smaug, including confirmation that he will begin filming in a month's time:

On a relevant side note, Benedict won an Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Actor last night for his performance in Danny Boyle's 'Frankenstein', a role which he mentions in this interview as proof that he will be suited to the motion capture work required for the Smaug role.
