Whether you know him as Sherlock, his role as Julian Assange, the voice of Smaug in the Hobbit, or Khan from "Star Trek Into Darkness," Benedict Cumberbatch is the new hot actor appearing nonstop on screens worldwide. With tons of devotees, now he's doing an appearance on the only TV show that might have as many fans as he does: Sesame Street.

With a little help from the Count, Cumberbatch is able to defeat the little guy but only after some of the cutest Sesame Street dialogue in the show's history.
