Eddie Redmayne has some unique features, some of which have allowed him to break down barries, both in modeling and acting. In particular, Redmayne thanks his big lips for getting him cast in the role of Angelina Jolie's son in 'The Good Shepherd'.
In a new feature with W Magazine, Redmayne explains why he got the role early in his career, saying, "I doubt it was my acting—I have my big lips to thank for getting cast."
In the same interview, Redmayne also teases his character in the Wachowski's upcoming 'Jupiter Ascending' with Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. He has a supporting role in the blockbuster, and he reveals that his character is, "not so nice.” He adds, smiling, "It’s time for the darkness to return. I kind of miss it.”
Redmayne currently has a busy slate coming up, and recently said that he wants to try to fit some theater into the next few years as well. In addition to Jupiter Ascending, he is rumored to be up for every major male lead role that has come up within the last few weeks. At this rate, he's bound to land something big soon, so expect to see him stick around for a long time.
