VIDEO: Eddie Redmayne Teaches Jimmy Fallon 'Fantastic Beasts' Mating Dance

Eddie Redmayne busts a move while stopping by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in an episode that aired on Wednesday (November 9).

The 34-year-old actor was there to discuss his upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (out November 18)!

In the film, his character Newt Scamander has to seduce a huge creature using a “mating dance.”

Eddie revealed that when he read “Newt performs mating dance” in the script, he didn’t know what to think.

“Two words have never filled me with so much sweat,” he said during his appearance.

“But I [googled it], of course,” Eddie added. “I went and looked [up] ‘weird random bird mating calls.’ And I made a few videos that I would send to the director, they were the most humiliating things you’ve ever seen in your life.”

Finally, he said director David Yates responded with, “Not sure it’s quite seductive enough…”

Check out Eddie teaching Jimmy the dance below!
