Eddie Redmayne Talks Fantastic Beasts and Not Wanting to be the “One Who Comes In and Screws It Up”

Oscar winning actor Eddie Redmayne is about to enter the magical wizarding world of J.K. Rowling’s creation. The same mind that brought us Harry Potter has now written her first screenplay; Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Redmayne plays the central role of Newt Scamander, a magizoologist who will eventually (according to Harry Potter canon) go on to write the text book that carries the film’s name. Harry, Ron, and Hermione eventually study Newt’s work during their time at Hogwarts. Newt’s story doesn’t tie into Harry Potter’s though; at least, not initially. Fantastic Beasts takes us back in time, ... Read more

Watch the Acceptance Speeches from Julianne Moore, J.K. Simmons, Eddie Redmayne and Patricia Arquette

Of the four speeches from last nights Academy Awards acting categories, J.K. Simmons was my favorite. We’d heard him say some of the same things back when he won his SAG Award but the whole ‘call your parents’ moment really got me. Did I call my parents? No, but that’s because I’m a jackass. But it was still a lovely moment. Eddie Redmayne‘s was fun as well. That moment when he jumped up and down was really nice. Patricia Arquette and Julianne Moore are just two wonderful human beings, aren’t they? Besides being terrific actresses, they are smart and caring ... Read more

Eddie Redmayne Had a “Catastrophically Bad” Audition for ‘Star Wars’… and an ‘Awful’ One for ‘The Hobbit’ Too!

How many times have you watched the Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens teaser trailer? Probably enough to scour every frame for clues to what the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel is actually about. Though we only saw a handful of actors in the trailer — and mostly those who couldn’t be identified because of the shot — there is one actor you definitely didn’t see: Eddie Redmayne. And you won’t be seeing him in the actual film either — not through lack of trying on Redmayne’s part, but because of what he calls a “catastrophically bad” audition. In an interview ... Read more

Eddie Redmayne’s Portrayal of Stephen Hawking in ‘The Theory of Everything’ was “a bit like training for a marathon”

Eddie Redmayne is making a big splash this Oscar season by taking on the role of Stephen Hawking in the biopic, The Theory of Everything. That’s a heady public persona to tackle, but the Les Misérables actor understood what he was up against. He told The Hollywood Reporter at the New York City premiere, “The overriding thing when you meet him is this wit. There’s a glint in his eye, a mischief or a Lord of Misrule quality, which is extraordinary. That’s the one thing I tried to capture.” Redmayne studied with a dancer for four months to understand how ... Read more
