British star Benedict Cumberbatch, threw a shadow over actor Jeremy Piven during a question and answer session, leaving Piven embarrassed.

A joint press conference was organized to present their shows which are being aired in the U.S. by PBS network. The session was supposed to promote Piven’s show Mr Selfridge and Cumberbatch’s Sherlock.

Star of the Entourage series expected numerous questions about Mr Selfridge, but it seems like the organizers forgot to mention the session was for both of them, leaving Cumberbatch in the centre of attention. Journalists were concentrating only on him, leaving Piven feeling left out and embarrassed.

Jeremy said to Jimmy Kimmel, “We went and did a Q&A for the critics and they said we were going to share it with Sherlock… They guide me to the stage in the dark and when the lights come on they say, ‘Please give your questions to Sherlock,’ and they forgot to say Mr Selfridge. I am standing there on the stage while hundreds of people made their way to Benedict Cumberb**ch (sic).”
