Benedict Cumberbatch Tries Out Some New Names – VIDEO

Sure, Benedict Cumberbatch has been nominated for an Oscar, has his own name generator and is the master of photobombs, but would people like him as much if his name was different?

Jimmy Kimmel wondered this same exact thing and put it to the test. With some help from Cumberbatch himself.

Watch as Benedict Cumberbatch (bringing new meaning to The Imitation Game) tries to pick you up in a bar, but kind of fails as he introduces himself as 2 Chainz, Queen Latifah and the Hamburglar.

Although to be fair, these pick up lines would probably still work on some of you.
