Remember that Star Trek Into Darkness shower scene J.J. Abrams showed on Conan back in May? You know, the one where Benedict Cumberbatch was naked and brooding?

Well, now you can see how the Sherlock star felt about that particular steamy scene when Conan showed it to him. To complete hilarity afterwards.

Cumberbatch said that he’d spent months training and eating chicken to bulk up in part for the purpose of that scene until Abrams left it on the cutting-room floor because he thought it didn’t fit with the rest of the flick. (And that’s why we thank God for deleted scenes!)

Not cool, J.J., for throwing Benedict under the bus!

Have a look (complete with sexy-times music):

Great to see Benedict Cumberbatch has a great sense of humor. Still, do you think J.J. Abrams did the right thing by leaving this scene out of the film?
