Benedict Cumberbatch - Benedict Cumberbatch Punches U.k. Tv Show Host In Mock Fight

Benedict Cumberbatch Alerts

Benedict Cumberbatch showed off his stuntman skills on British Tv show Top Gear when he took part in a mock fist fight with the programme's host Jeremy Clarkson.

The actor, who stars as the evil Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness, appeared on the motoring show on Sunday (14Jul13) and was quizzed about his on-screen action scenes by a curious Clarkson, who didn't understand how to fake a punch.

The pair then prepared the mock fight scene with Cumberbatch directing the show's cameramen, before pretending to punch his host on the jaw.

The actor also took part in the programme's Star In A Reasonably Priced Car segment, in which celebrities race a family vehicle around a track - but he was disappointed to discover his lap time was slower than previous Star Trek villain Eric Bana.

Cumberbatch completed his lap in one minute 47.8 seconds while Bana, who played Nero in the 2009 Star Trek film, racked up a one minute, 47.5 lap time in a 2009 episode of the show.
