Eddie Redmayne Wants to Play Bananaman in a Movie, Pal Andrew Garfield Approves
Eddie Redmayne sandwiches himself between host Sofia Coppola and co-star Felicity Jones at a special screening of The Theory of Everything held at the MoMa Screening Room on Tuesday evening (November 18) in New York City.
“Please, I’m desperate to do Bananaman,” Eddie recently told Yahoo Movies about his love for the ’80s British cartoon. “Bananaman is this great guy who eats a banana, and he becomes Bananaman. He’s the one that I’ve always wanted to play, to the extent that Andrew Garfield — an old pal — was asked in an interview, ‘If you could play any superhero other than Spider-Man, who would you play?’ And he was thinking about it, and the interviewer was like, ‘Bananaman?’ And Andrew was like, ‘No, Eddie’s playing that.’”
FYI: Felicity is wearing a Christopher Kane dress.
