Today, it’s been announced that Benedict Cumberbatch will providing the voice of Sher Khan; the infamous Tiger from The Jungle Book. This film will be the directorial debut of Andy Serkis (Caesar!) and will be in competition with a different Jungle Book, featuring the excellent Idris Elba as Shere Khan. But, the Cumberbatch thing got us thinking. After providing the voice of Smaug the Dragon (in The Hobbit movies) and now Shere Khan the Tiger, what other beastly, hardcore voices should Cumberbatch do?

Check out what Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice is doing in our dreams.
