Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne describes Jude Law’s Albus Dumbledore in one tantalising word

Radio Times shares this article where Eddie talks about working on the new Fantastic Beasts film and Jude Law’s version of Dumbledore.

The pair finished filming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at the end of last year

Eddie Redmayne has lots of secrets to keep. The British actor is the star of JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts films, set in the early 20th century and following the adventures of magizoologist Newt Scamander. In a sequel due out later this year, Redmayne’s Newt will be joined by Jude Law and Johnny Depp, playing younger versions of Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald, but he’s under strict instructions to stay tight-lipped about his role in the Potterverse.

Still, when RadioTimes.com sat down with him for a chat about Early Man, his new film from the makers of Wallace and Gromit, we managed to squeeze a few details from him. Like his experience working with Law – “I’ve known Jude for many years and I like him hugely and it was really wonderful watching him find the young version of Dumbledore.”

How would he describe his co-star’s portrayal of the iconic future headmaster of Harry Potter? “Playful”.

As for Newt, he’s “pretty central” this time around. “It’s really a progression of the story as we left off and what’s going on with him and his relationship with Dumbledore”.

Fantastic Beasts isn’t in cinemas until November 16th, but in the meantime Redmayne is busy promoting his new film Early Man which sees him play Stone Age hunter/gatherer Dug who finds himself playing a football match against Bronze Age warriors to secure a future for his tribe.

For Redmayne, it was a chance to finally realise his footballing ambitions…

“I come from a family of really talented sportspeople – severely talented sportspeople – and I am catastrophically bad. The last time I really played football was when I was about eight years old playing for the Colet Court team against Kings Wimbledon. I was in goal, I let a pea roller through my legs and I was fired from the team and that is pretty much the scarring history of my footballing career which is why this film is one of the greatest things I’ve ever been a part of.”

Comments Off on We Asked Eddie Redmayne 21 Very Important Things You’ve Always Wanted To Know

We talked to the Early Man star about everything from his favourite swearword to the time he freaked out in front of Allison Janney.

Eddie Redmayne is one of the world’s most versatile actors. He won an Academy Award for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, tried his hand at a musical as Marius in Les Misérables, and entered J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world in 2016 as Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Now Eddie’s doing something new: He’s lending his voice to caveman Dug in Early Man, the new animation from Aardman (yes, the people behind Wallace and Gromit).

We at BuzzFeed are huge fans of Eddie, so when we got the chance to meet him in London recently to chat about Early Man, we decided to ask him some very important questions…

1. Tea or coffee?
Eddie Redmayne: Coffee.

2. How do you take it?

ER: I like it with a lot of milk. I’m either a latte man, or an Americano with a lot of milk and sugar. A lot of sugar. I can occasionally go to that mocha-cappa-racca-racca thing depending on the time of year. Is that too long an answer?

3. Puppies or kittens?

ER: Puppies!

4. What animal do you think you’re most like?
ER: Well, when I was doing the first Fantastic Beasts, I did this whole Pottermore Patronus thing and I was a Basset hound dog. Twice. Which sort of broke all the algorithm rules of that thing, so I felt like that was the world – or J.K. Rowling’s world – telling me that I was, in fact, a Basset hound. I’ll take that.

5. Have you ever been mistaken for another celebrity?

ER: I once, when I was younger, was outside a theatre, and this woman came up. I had been doing a play at the time, and she started saying how she really loved the play, and she thought the performance was great. I was very flattered, and then halfway through, she said, “I’ve never seen a Hamlet like it.” I wasn’t playing Hamlet. Ben Whishaw was playing Hamlet at the time, who happens to be one of my favourite actors, but she was so far down it that I didn’t want to tell her I wasn’t Ben Whishaw. So I took Ben’s praise and ran and hid.

6. What Hogwarts house are you in?
ER: Hufflepuff!

7. What’s your favourite pizza topping?
ER: La Reine Romana with extra pepperoni, salad, and dressing on the side from Pizza Express. Literally my favourite thing in the world. When I’m eating it I’m at my most happy.

8. What’s your drink of choice?

ER: Vodka and tonic, with very cold tonic water and very cold ice. [laughs] And a lime.

9. What’s your favourite drunk food?
ER: [laughs] La Reine Romana with Pizza Express dressing on the side.

Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne to read Christmas Day CBeebies bedtime story

Actors Eddie Redmayne and Emily Watson are the latest stars to sign up to read a CBeebies betime story.

The pair will read tales over the festive period as they follow in the steps of stars including Tom Hardy and Dolly Parton.

Oscar-winning actor Redmayne will appear on the children’s show on Christmas Day while Watson will be on screens on Boxing Day.

The news was announced by the BBC’s director-general Lord Tony Hall during a speech at the Children’s Global Media Summit in Manchester on Tuesday.
Lord Hall said the BBC has been “part of the fabric of childhood for so many generations of children in the UK, that they – now as adults – want us to play a big part in the lives of their own children in turn.”

“That’s why we can have a huge Hollywood star like Tom Hardy reading bedtime stories for CBeebies – he said it was great to appear in something that was actually appropriate for his kids to watch,” he added.

“In fact – we haven’t announced it yet – but I can tell you that we’ve now got two other great British stars lined up to read bedtime stories over the festive period: Eddie Redmayne on Christmas Day, and Emily Watson on Boxing Day,” he said.

Comments Off on ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Sequel’s Title Revealed

We have the new film’s title! CAN”T WAIT! Only 365 days left until it’s released!

The followup hits theaters Nov. 16, 2018.

The full title of the Fantastic Beasts sequel has been revealed.

A year out from its release date, Warner Bros. announced that the followup to the 2016 hit will be titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

That title is in reference to Gellert Grindelwald, the character played by Johnny Depp. At the end of the first movie, the powerful Dark wizard was revealed and captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. The sequel will follow the efforts of Albus Dumbledore, played by Jude Law, to thwart Grindelwald.

David Yates again directs the followup from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. Eddie Redmayne — who stars in the series as a 1920s magizoologist named Newt Scamander — Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller and Carmen Ejogo will reprise their roles in the sequel. Callum Turner, Zoe Kravitz and Jessica Williams are also among the franchise’s new additions.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters Nov. 16, 2018. The announcement also included a first-look photo of the cast in character.
