With three major premieres -- opening film The Fifth Estate, August: Osage County and 12 Years a Slave -- Benedict Cumberbatch is already the breakout star of TIFF '13, a month before the fest begins. If you're not already a "Cumberb*tch," you will be by the end of the festival, because this 37-year-old Brit is about to be everywhere. But really, it sort of feels like that already. He's in Sherlock, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hobbit. Name any star in Hollywood, and you can probably link them to this up-and-comer's C.V.

The same goes for any star at the CBC.

Want proof? Let's play 3 Degrees of Benedict Cumberbatch!

See how the actor's IMDB credits link him to CBC stars. If he's looking for new Canadian buddies, he's only a few degrees of separation from everyone here.
