Jur-lock Holmes?

August 17, 2013

Sarah Lavender Smith has described ultramarathoner Scott Jurek as “familiar, cute, boyish and slightly nerdy in an attractive way … a cross between Peter from The Brady Bunch and Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory.”

I claim, though, that I’ve found a better doppelganger for Jurek: English actor Benedict Cumberbatch in his role as Sherlock Holmes.

Cumberbatch? Jurek?
