benedict-cumberbacthWe posted how Benedict Cumberbatch recorded his Star Trek Into Darkness audition on his iPhone a while back but in the video below, Cumberbatch actually explains how that all came about and how he actually did it, complete with the help of his God sons.

The video is from the awful Entertainment Tonight and they show how bad they are with the ominous background music playing in the background. Seriously, what’s up with that? It’s like they are waiting for him to attack the cameraman.

Check it out below.
