The Imitation Game

In this thriller, directed by Morten Tyldum, Cumberbatch plays Alan Turing, the genius British computer scientist. He cracks the German Enigma Code which helps the Allies win WWII. Co-starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Goode.

Not many people know the whole story, that he invented the computer, broke the Enigma code, was prosecuted for being a homosexual and underwent a year of oestrogen injections before dying in 1954. The irony and sickness of it was extraordinary! He wasn’t shouting from the rooftops or trying to start a cause, he was just a man who was gay. He’s such a quiet hero.

Jason Bateman interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Bateman during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about role in the film Bad Words. 

I’m embarrassed to say I have a similar dark sense of humor, but I also have a very soft chewy center that this nasty guy I play has. It just kind of worked for me, you kind of have to show this guy is sensitive, but show his prickly veneer.
