By "you're" I guess you mean me. Really? Do you also believe I wrote the article just to comment on it here? The thought you assign to me came from the article.
I'm not sure what you're talking about. I'm talking about this quote from you...

My respect for Cumberbatch just went up like a good stock to even jest that Abrams is a dickhead. Which he is. As with all humor, there has to be some truth for it to be funny and the article went on to illuminate Cumberbatch's play on that.
...which seems to imply that you think Cumberbatch was actually somehow deep down thinking Abrams is a dick, most likely because you feel that he is as well and you're taking BC's quote out of context to suit your own beliefs.

You're welcome to think Abrams is a dick all you want to. But there's no "truth" about BC thinking the same thing, even by using humor to disguise it.
It doesn't matter what I think. The article made the implication that you persist in confusing. I suspect the truth is that the statement resonates with enough people to be funny whether Cumberbatch thinks Abrams is a dickhead or not.
