H. Jon Benjamin is HAL 9000

H. Jon Benjamin recently stopped by the Brooklyn live show Late Night Basement, and, as is his natural tendency, started doing voiceovers. This time, Benjamin lends his considerable chops to a performance that already had chops to spare, HAL 9000, from 2001: A Space Odyssey. In the video, embedded below, Benjamin improvs his way through a minute and a half of HAL’s most famous scene, giving HAL the playfulness and sardonic edge of his trademark characters.
