Each year, there are a couple of actors who seem to be everywhere you turn. In 2011, it was Jessica Chastain. In 2012, it was Channing Tatum. In 2013, it could very well be Benedict Cumberbatch. The jury’s still out on whether we’ll be getting more Sherlock before the year’s out, but either way we’ll be seeing plenty of his handsome British visage. He has some four movies due out next year, and now HBO’s picked up his 2012 UK miniseries Parade’s End to air in the U.S. next month.
Adapted by Tom Stoppard from the book tetralogy by Ford Madox Ford, the series centers on a love triangle between the aristocratic Christopher (Cumberbatch), his unfaithful wife Sylvia (Rebecca Hall), and the spirited young Valentine (Adelaide Clemens) against the backdrop of World War I and a quickly changing society. Stephen Graham, Anne-Marie Duff, Rupert Everett, and Miranda Richardson also star. Watch the teaser trailer after the jump.
