LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The ash blonde wig he liked. The contacts, not so much. Benedict Cumberbatch says he “kind of enjoyed” wearing the wig. He says people on the set of “The Fifth Estate” gasped when they saw him because he looked so much like Julian Assange. He says he had a hard time with the contact lenses that gave him the same color eyes as Assange. He’d never worn contacts before. Cumberbatch also wore prosthetic teeth and used a dialect coach to help him with the slight lisp Assange has. The Fifth Estate opened today.
