LONDON – Today it was revealed that Benedict Cumberbatch’s real name is Gary Tank.
Following years of speculation, the Studio Exec can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that Benedict Cumberbatch’s real name is Gary Tank. Tank changed his name to Cumberbatch when he was drunk on cider and forgot – in a cider fueled Bourneesque way – to change it back again. He confessed to Studio Exec:
I’m so sorry about this. My name embarrassed me, but when I changed it, I chose an even sillier one. How could I know it would become the name I would then have to use for the rest of my life?
However, with the Studio Exec revealing his real name, Cumberbatch has decided to change his name back to Gary Tank:
It’s my name and I should be okay with that.
