Benedict Cumberbatch proved how otter-ly amazing he is while visiting The Graham Norton Show Friday with his Black Mass co-star, Johnny Depp.

Apparently many fans of the Sherlock star believe he has an uncanny resemblance to an otter and have been creating side-by-side memes, which have gone viral.

Host Graham Norton asked the 39-year-old actor if he would mind creating more comparison photos. Cumberbatch obliged -- and the result was absolutely adorable.

He subjected himself to various otter poses, which included a group shot that Depp and Norton joined in on, as can be seen in the clip below.

“People [who] like the viral pictures of me and an otter will go and see a film about a violent gangster. Yay!” Cumberbatch joked.

Although he does make an adorable otter, Cumberbatch put on a very different face to channel the brother to a scary gang member (Depp) in his latest film. Check out the chilling trailer for Black Mass below.
