Cumberbatch's 'Instrument'

Interviews with Chris Pine are generally not worth reading IMO, he's not especially articulate and he generally gibbers away about nothing in particular while attempting to make himself sound considerably brighter than he actually is, he surpassed himself with this one though;

I have to admit this is exciting news, but I'd rather have him watch Spock's instrument.

LOL, never read an interview of him. It's like he's drunk or something.

Re: Cumberbatch's 'Instrument'

"Instrument" is an an actor euphemism for skills/ability/talent/technique. All he's saying is Cumberbatch is a really good actor.

Re: Cumberbatch's 'Instrument'

Okay, let me rephrase: I would rather have him praise Spock's ability and technique.

I'd rather he praised his instrument. Who needs precision when you get can have interpretation.

I was hoping to get a rise out of it.

"..he has a great command of his penis or whatever the hell you want to call it. He's formidable"

Such an improvement!

And who knows Miss Lemon maybe after ST:XI you will very very fine about this being Pine about Cumberbatch rather than Spock

It's a rather stiff way of looking at things, don't you think?

Re: Cumberbatch's 'Instrument'

OH enough with this coyness.

We all want to know who Batchie is going to be the most slash friendly with. I'm going for NuKirk because you have the dark and the light. The villain and the farmboy. The experienced master and the upstart padawan. Now personally this is not that great for me as I am the only female ever who hasn't found Cumberbatch hot but I'm quite open to dramatically changing my mind. The stills we've gotten so far haven't exactly done that but there's more to a man than his face.
