Eddie Redmayne Hilariously Reenacts Failed 'Hobbit' Audition

Eddie Redmayne does some funky hand motions while reenacting his failed audition for the role of Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit film franchise.

The 32-year-old actor was appearing on The Graham Norton Show when he talked about reading for the role and why he “never got a callback.”

“They were auditioning for The Hobbit and I was sent in on an audition for Bilbo Baggins, which shows they were really casting the net wide. I went to this audition and I’d been really rigorous about it. I didn’t want to do just my usual boring thing and so I went on YouTube and I found Ian Holm who played it in Lord of the Rings and I tried to copy his character,” Eddie said.

Make sure to watch the video below to see how Anna Kendrick reacts to it all!
