Neil Gaiman: Benedict Cumberbatch was perfect for Sandman - but Tom Hiddleston is still out there
Is Tom Hiddleston Living in Benedict Cumberbatch's Shadow?
It's well known that British actors Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch are good friends, but I'm sure they must be tired of being so inextricably linked that films are starting to think of them as interchangeable. On Tuesday, author Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman Opens Up About 'Sandman' Movie - "I think the first time I saw Benedict [Cumberbatch] was as Sherlock Holmes, I thought, 'Wow, that's incredibly Morpheus,' and fans probably thought the same because they immediately started doing fan-art, meshing the two of them up ... Then again, Tom Hiddleston is still out there! And the truth is, as far as I'm concerned, anybody who sounds English with great cheekbones can probably pull it off."
Neil Gaiman posted the link to Benedict singing in Neverwhere, but added that he was told it’s neat to open the link in several tabs about 15 seconds apart to make a sort of round of him singing. But it’s 1am here in Nebraska, I can’t sleep, and needed something to do so I thought I’d just create it myself and IT’S EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL. Have a listen.
