Tom Holland Impersonates Doctor Strange Actor Benedict Cumberbatch, Hilariously Calls Himself ‘Darling’ a Lot

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. With Tom Holland and Benedict Cumberbatch’s hilarious impressions of each other, flattery must go off the charts. The Doctor Strange actor recalled meeting Holland for the first time at the Spider-Man: No Way Home premiere. He gave a hilarious imitation of the Spider-Man actor, but then Tom Holland got his chance to do an impression of Benedict Cumberbatch.

Benedict Cumberbatch did an impression of Tom Holland at the ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ premiere

Jacob Batalon, Tom Holland, and Zendaya arrived at the Spider-Man: No Way Home premiere and snapped some pictures with the star of Doctor Strange and Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch. 

“It’s crazy to be on set with [actors] this young, this talented, and this generous and kind, and every day is a very lively, lovely, energized and focused and brilliant to watch day,” Cumberbatch said about Holland to ET. “We know each other well, we’re two Brits who are having the rides of our lives, and it’s fun to share a little bit of it with him. I’m really proud of him.”

The future Doctor Strange 2 star recalled when they met with a hilarious impression of the Spider-Man cast lead.

“He’s younger than me, like I said before, to get to see him, and the first moment [I met him], I remember him bounding across the concrete at Longcross, we had to shoot a lot of Marvel stuff in England, and he went “‘Ello, I’m Tom, I’ve just been cast to do Spider-Man!’ and I was like ‘Wow, congratulations, that’s amazing!’”

And Cumberbatch has been pushed to do impressions of Holland in more interviews for Spider-Man: No Way Home and even for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, Holland finally got his chance to retaliate.

After discussing a possible cameo with Zendaya on Euphoria, the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show host said that Cumberbatch does an incredible impression of Him. She wanted to know if Tom Holland could do an impression of Benedict Cumberbatch around the 

“Uh, okay, Benedict Cumberbatch,” Holland prepared himself. “‘Oh Tom, darling, would you like to run the lines before we start shooting, darling?’”

Holland did his best to lower his voice and capture the charm that comes from the Sherlock star. The host laughed, calling the impression of the Sorcerer Supreme actor ‘spot on.’

You can hear the Peter Parker actor voicing his impression around the 2:28:10 mark.

The ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ star said the Doctor Strange actor nailed his ‘energy’

In another interview, Jacob Batalon, Tom Holland, and Zendaya appeared to talk with BBC Radio 1. He asked the Spider-Man: No Way Home stars if they saw Benedict Cumberbatch impersonating Tom Holland, and the Peter Parker actor had a few notes.

“I have seen Benedict impersonating me,” Holland admitted. “And actually, it’s not that bad. He hasn’t got the accent or the voice, but he’s got the energy.”

MJ’s actor Zendaya jumped in, saying she can’t impersonate Holland, but she can imitate his Peter Parker. Batalon admitted that he tried to talk like Holland, but it just sounded like a “generic British person,” according to Zendaya.

Now someone needs to ask Andrew Garfield to do an impression of his Spider-Man: No Way Home co-stars. Then the trifecta of British actors impersonating each other will be complete.
