Sherlock star picks tricky penguin job
SHERLOCK actor Benedict Cumberbatch has landed a voiceover role in upcoming film The Penguins of Madagascar, but he’s got one BIG problem... he can’t say the word PENGUIN!
The plummy-voiced thespian suffers from a vocal impediment which makes pronouncing the name of the flightless bird difficult.
While narrating a BBC documentary about the South Pacific, the actor ( above) quite clearly stumbles over the word several times, pronouncing it at least FOUR different ways.
He refers to them as, “Pengwengs”, “Pangwangs” and then “Penglings”.
This comes after it emerged fans of the 38-year-old in China were unable to pronounce his surname – so the press are now referring to him as ‘Curly Holmes’.
Unfortunately, they can’t say Holmes either, so his name is pronounced ‘Curly Holl-mez’ instead.
