Not only has Benedict Cumberbatch proclaimed his adoration for Affleck's best friend Matt Damon, but now Damon has made it clear that he's also interested in becoming bros perhaps beginning a bromance with the British actor.
It all started when the "Sherlock" star gushed about Damon during an interview earlier this month, calling the Oscar winner "Bourne Identity" star "so grounded" and "so intelligent."
"He makes these smart choices, as an actor, as a producer, as a writer," Cumberbatch, 37, told Vulture. "He's so composed."
Just in case the interviewer didn't get the message, the man who inspires Cumberbabes everywhere, made it clear.
"My biggest wish is to hang out with him! ... Do you have Matt's number?" he asked. "Can you pass along a message, and tell him that Benedict is a big fan and would like to hang?"
Just this week, Damon, 42, revealed to NextMovie while promoting his new action flick "Elysium" that he would be up for getting a beer with his number one fan boy sometime.
It seems Damon wasn't aware of didn't know about Cumberbatch's love for him, although he's familiar with the actor, saying he's "very talented."
The website reported that Damon's publicist contacted Cumberbatch's agent on the way out of the sit-down to set up a meeting between the two.
No worries, though, if that appointment doesn't happen soon, because the guys are set to meet shortly anyway. They're both nominated for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie — Damon for "Behind the Candelabra" and Cumberbatch for "Parade's End" — at the 2013 Emmy Awards on September 22.
Alas, three-time Oscar winner Affleck is not nominated, although an episode of "Saturday Night Live" that he hosted did get a nod for art direction.
