Teenager Who Looks Like Benedict Cumberbatch Is Getting So Much Ass

Tyler Michell is your average teenager: He goes to high school, lives with his family, and, oh yeah, gets mistaken for Benedict Cumberbatch on the reg.

The British teen, a spitting image of the “Sherlock” star, rose in fame as quickly as the actor himself.

Over the past few months, his Instagram account went from a few hundred followers to almost 16,000 followers. Fans mistaking him for his older lookalike often stop him on the street to ask for an autograph.

Michell told Daily Mail,

It started out as a joke… My close friends and family would tease me and say I look like Benedict Cumberbatch.

Once the social media world began to notice the uncanny resemblance, things changed. Michell said,

People starting adding me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and I got more and more followers… Now people are messaging me and saying I should have won the Oscar.

Sure, the constant harassment may be a bit annoying, but there are perks.

He said,

I get girls from Brazil saying they want to meet me in the UK.

Additionally, several fans suggested he play the teenage version of the actor in a movie or show, which Michell admits he “would love,” but doubts it will ever happen.

Hilariously, the teenager doesn't even see the resemblance himself, which is shocking, given his incredible resemblance to the British star.

He says he’s a “huge fan of Benedict,” but doesn’t think he looks like him

You can see for yourself just how wrong Michell is in the below photos.

The bright side: No matter what happens in his life, he's got a solid career in celebrity impersonation to fall back on.

This photo got over 2,000 likes.
