Benedict Cumberbatch is in such high demand that he has to confirm which roles he’s NOT doing. That’s a level of success most struggling actors daydream about every time they scrape change together for the Carl’s Jr. drive-thru. But for Cumberbatch, it’s just another day at Oz Comic-Con.

The Sherlock star broke nerd hearts in Sydney, Australia last weekend when he announced that he will not be appearing in Doctor Who any of the new Star Wars films. The British actor is a sci-fi fan favorite for his role as the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes on the hit BBC series, and as intergalactic villain Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness. Unfortunately, his love affair with sci-fi ends there.

“I’m never gonna play The Doctor and nothing to do with the Whoniverse,” Cumberbatch was quoted during a Q&A at Oz Comic-Con. It was a big disappointment to fans who thought the crossover from Sherlock to Doctor Who seemed like a natural progression simply because Sherlock writer, Steven Moffatt, also oversees Doctor Who.

And as far as Star Wars goes, it looks like J.J. Abrams was the one who broke Cumberbatch’s heart. “I would’ve liked a part in J.J.’s new Star Wars but it won’t happen sadly,” he was quoted.

But don’t fret, sci-fi-Cumberbatch lovers. There’s still room on The Hobbit: There and Back Again bandwagon.
