Benedict Cumberbatch proves that he is the most reliable celebrity under the sun, showing up for his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live just two days after getting married in England. Kimmel attempts to warm up the studio with a projected image of a beach, followed by virgin piña coladas garnished with mini-umbrellas. Like all talks show hosts are now required to do when new parents or prospective parents are guests, Jimmy turns the conversation to baby names. He suggests the Cumberbun's first name starts with a Q, but Benedict politely declines to answer.
