It looks like Star Trek Into Darkness villain and Sherlock star, Benedict Cumberbatch's next move will be playing the lead in one of William Shakespeare's many classic tragedies: According to BBC, Cumberbatch will star as Prince Hamlet in a production of Hamlet, which will run at London's Barbican Centre from August to October, 2015

The play will be directed by Lyndsey Turner, who has received rave reviews for her direction of Lucy Kirkwood's play Chimerica, and her revival of Sophie Treadwell's Machina that recently ended a successful run on Broadway. 

Tumblr should be exploding at this news right about...now.
