Benedict Cumberbatch can't help but be confronted with the Christmas spirit while he promotes his new film, The Grinch. The Doctor Strange actor was recently put in the hot seat when he was asked which of his costars, including those in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, would go on the Naughty or Nice Lists.
Among the actors namedropped in his Radio Times interview were Robert Downey, Jr., Tom Holland, Rachel McAdams, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Pratt, Tilda Swinton, Karen Gillan and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Most surprisingly, all of them made the Naughty List except the least likely suspect: Hiddleston, who plays the devious trickster god Loki.
It's ironic Tom Hiddleston, his costar in Avengers: Infinity War and Thor: Ragnarok, would make Cumberbatch's Nice List, consider their characters still have unresolved issues stemming from the events in Ragnarok.
Another former Cumberbatch costar, Martin Freeman, was also mentioned. Freeman starred with Cumberbatch in Sherlock, playing the title character's renowned sidekick Watson. Though he plays CIA agent Everett Ross in the MCU, Freeman has yet to work with Benedict in a Marvel movie.
In theaters Nov. 9, The Grinch stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Ariel Winter, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely and Angela Lansbury.
