In the flick Benedict looks completely different as he underwent a geriatric makeover for his role. 

In the first look trailer, the actor sported spectacles, thinning white hair and a beard – making him look miles apart from his usual handsome looks.

The new trailer for his upcoming film comes as Benedict spoke about playing a gay character in The Power of the Dog – where he plays ‘sadistic rancher’ Phil Burbank who strikes up a relationship with Peter (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

While Cumberbatch isn’t gay, Benedict revealed in an interview with IndieWire that they did speak about him playing a gay character often, adding, ‘It wasn’t done without thought.’

‘I feel very sensitive about representation, diversity, and inclusion,’ he said at the Telluride Film Festival.

‘One of the appeals of the job was the idea that in this world, with this specific character, there was a lot that was private, hidden from view,’ he added.

While it’s never specifically stated what his character’s sexual preference is, the actor has played a gay man before, portraying Alan Turing in The Imitation Game.

‘It wasn’t done without thought. I also feel slightly like, is this a thing where our dance card has to be public? Do we have to explain all our private moments in our sexual history? I don’t think so,’ he added.
