Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch is a jack-of-all-trades. Super hero (Doctor Strange), space villain (Star Trek Into Darkness), international rogue (The Fifth Estate) and, of course, the greatest private investigator of all time (Sherlock). But did you know he's also kind of a singer? The actor hopped on stage Wednesday night (Sept. 28) on the third night of Pink Floyd leader David Gilmour's five-night stand at London's Royal Albert Hall for a run through the 1979 Floyd classic "Comfortably Numb."
