When I first saw Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock, I have to say I could not understand what the fuss was about. He was a great actor, but a heart throb? I didn't get it. Then I saw him in the newest Star Trek. Hot holy hell! What was I thinking? He may not be traditionally good looking, but there's a special something there - and it doesn't hurt that he has curly hair that's naturally red.
