You may recognize him from his role as Sherlock Holmes or as Doctor Strange in the Avengers series.

All we know is if anyone can go from a sneaky detective to a grouchy Grinch, it is Benedict Cumberbatch.

"I can get Grinchy in a car. I get quite Grinchy when I'm hangry or jet-lagged. That happens. But I don't have too much to get Grinchy about, honestly," Cumberbatch revealed to USA Today. "And I love Christmas for the reasons this film celebrates."
