Benedict Cumberbatch: Finally I can 'photobomb' myself

Benedict Cumberbatch joked, "Finally I can photobomb myself" after the Sherlock star prepared for his likeness to grace Madame Tussauds in London.

Cumberbatch, who famously "photobombed" stars including U2 on the Oscars red carpet, said it was a "weird and wonderful compliment to be included in the ranks of talent already committed to wax".

"It's an extraordinary experience," he said after sculptors and technicians took dozens of measurements and photographs for the waxwork.

"Also my agents will be thrilled, they've wanted a clone of me for some time," Cumberbatch added.
