Cumberbatch Will NOT Appear in “Star Wars: Episode VII”!

…or will he? I mean, J.J. Abrams is not exactly known for being forthcoming with fans about the details of his projects.

But actor Benedict Cumberbatch was recently in Australia for Oz Comic-Con and the actor told the crowd that regarding the Star Wars movie, “it won’t happen, sadly,” according to The Iris, a news site covering the Q&A session.

He also reportedly told the crowd that they can stop holding their breath regarding him and a particular Doctor:

I can already hear the sobbing — and I’m with you guys on that.
