Benedict Cumberbatch Pays Tribute to Alan Rickman in a Brief Scene From The Simpsons

Benedict Cumberbatch, who has previously performed spot-on impressions of the late Alan Rickman, did so once again in a fitting tribute to the late thespian through an animated spot on The Simpsons, which briefly parodied two of Rickman’s films – Love, Actually and Harry Potter – during which Professor Snape was heard to proclaim, “Love is more powerful than all of my magic.” To bring that point even further home, the scene was set to the wonderful David Bowie classic “All the Young Dudes” Indeed.
