Jennifer Aniston Wants Benedict Cumberbatch for ‘Horrible Bosses 3’
Jennifer Aniston and her Horrible Bosses co-stars spent a plane journey with Benedict Cumberbatch discussing a potential role for him in the next movie.
The former Friends star appeared alongside Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis, in the original comedy, and they have all returned for a sequel, Horrible Bosses 2, with Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz joining the cast.
Aniston admits they are all keen to make a third film in the franchise, so they made the most of a meeting with Cumberbatch on a plane to London and attempted to persuade him to take on a nasty role in the next movie.
She tells London Live’s The Evening Show, “I just flew on an airplane with him, we all did. We think we recruited him to be in number three as the new boss. He might have said yes and I don’t think he knows it. Could you imagine being on an airplane and being bombarded by the three boys and me and all of us going, ‘So you’re going to be the new boss?’ And I was like, ‘He is?’ Apparently he said, ‘Yes, apparently I am.’ He was very excited to sort of digress with us.”
Aniston also reveals she would like a potential sequel to be made in London.
She adds, “I would do anything to shoot the third film in London. Anything.”
