Matt Damon - Matt Damon plans drink date with Benedict Cumberbatch

Matt Damon wants to get a beer with Benedict Cumberbatch.

After the 'Sherlock' actor revealed he has a ''man-crush'' on the 'Behind the Candleabra' actor, a flattered Matt suggested the pair get a drink together at the Primetime Emmy Awards in September.

He told ''He's very talented, but I have not met him.

''We'll have to go get a beer. He's really good. We can hang out at the Emmys.''

The pair will actually be competing against each other at the awards for the Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie award, with Matt up for his role in 'Behind the Candelabra' and Benedict nominated for 'Parade's End'.

Benedict's man-crush was revealed in a recent interview when he couldn't help gushing about his admiration for Matt.

He said: ''He's just so grounded. He's so intelligent. He makes these smart choices, as an actor, as a producer, as a writer. He's so composed. You never hear a bad word said about him. Everybody loves him. And he just sounds like he's got his priorities right as a human being, and as an actor, he's phenomenal. What a screen presence.''
