Benedict Cumberbatch is officially the king of photobombs.

At the Golden Globes on Sunday, Margaret Cho was introduced as the latest member of the Hollywood Foreign Press. She dressed up like a North Korean reporter for “Movies Wow” magazine and posed for a quick photo with Meryl Streep (taken by Michael Keaton).

But then boom: Cumberbatch!

He pulled the same move on U2 at last year’s Oscars.

After the stunt, things got a bit more serious as Hollywood Foreign Press President Theo Kingma came out on stage and received a standing ovation for this statement on free speech.

“As international journalists we understand the freedom of artistic expression. It is not only an integral part of the American fabric, but a beacon that is reflected across the globe,” he said. “Together we will stand united against anyone that will repress free speech. Anywhere, from North Korea to Paris.”

"The Soup" host and "Community" star Joel McHale is about to take on the trolls!

E! has greenlit his pilot for "Comments Section," which will star Michael Kosta and "focus on deconstructing the often snarky comments on popular websites."

Not sure if this will shame them, or encourage them…

Things are about to get a whole lot nastier down there.

A new Riker meme? Make it so.

To mark the Blu-ray release of the seventh season of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," the Internet has been treated to a new gag reel, thanks to Uproxx.

While watching Captain Picard curse about getting his foot stepped on by Doctor Beverly Crusher is pretty great, this outtake with Jonathan Frakes, as Commander William Riker, is the real winner here.

The real loser here: Tracy.

You can watch the whole thing below:

The Central Japan Railway Company is in the midst of an 8-day testing period for its maglev (magnetically levitated) train, which can travel at speeds up to 311mph. Japan's bullet trains currently run at about 200mph.

One hundred passengers got to go for a ride this week during the first trail run in Yamanashi Prefecture.

But… should they really be "testing" this thing out with people on board?

If all goes as planned, the maglev trains will be operational 2027, providing a 40-minute trip between Nagoya and Tokyo (normally 80 minutes).

Happy Halloween, here's some free money!

Thanks to a faulty door lock, a bag of cash tumbled out of an armored truck Friday morning in Maryland, spilling bills all over the road.

Drivers got out of their cars, but not to help clean up. They sped away with nearly all of the money, except for a mere $200, according to WTOP.

Police are investigating and urging the drivers who stole it to give it back. Good luck with that.
