Cumberbatch's Star Trek Quiz, Audition

Benedict Cumberbatch is making the rounds to promote the United States airing of Sherlock Season 2 starting this Sunday on PBS. The series already aired in the UK early this year and very much worth checking out. During these interviews (below) he was asked questions about Star Trek. VH1's Carrie Keagan tried to verify his possible role of Khan was unable but he did briefly speak about his audition story (starts at the 3:41 point). It also turns out his female fan base have a new name - the Cumberbitches. For MTV he was given a Star Trek quiz which he failed spectacularly with no knowledge on things like Klingons and Khan's original ship the Botany Bay. His lack of knowledge about the Botany could be read as meaning he isn't playing the role but it could just mean his character is different enough new origin story that the Bay is irrelevant. Also be sure to hit up YouTuber romangirl88 or TrekMovie for an interesting Sherlock Q&A panel with the actor.
