Eddie Redmayne Is Being Eyed For The ‘Harry Potter’ Spinoff

I'm in.

Isn’t it such a great feeling to know that you totally called something? I totally called Eddie Redmayne being a thing. It’s so ridiculous but I truly believe that, because I used to obsess about his minor character in The Other Boleyn Girl so much (when I watched it every night for about 6 months), I put all this positive energy into his career. And now, here he is—an Oscar winner for his role in The Theory of Everything, and a frontrunner for the lead in the Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Here Is Our First Official Look At Jared Leto As The Joker In ‘Suicide Squad’

BUT this official look is FAR from a final look

Yesterday we got to see a fun group photo of the principal cast of the upcoming DC Comics movie Suicide Squad that was missing one main actor — Jared Leto, who will play The Joker in the film.
