There’s been a lot of chat recently about how Fantastic Beasts star Eddie Redmayne, especially as the movie’s lead character Newt Scamander, would be a great choice for The Doctor in a future series of Doctor Who.
And now it seems it’s not entirely out of the question as the actor himself is up for playing the role and seems to see why he’d be the fans’ choice now that he’s got the Harry Potter role ou of the way.
Speaking on BBC Radio 1, the actor was asked if he’d be up for travelling the universe in a little blue box and he replied: “Would I do it? Yeah! It’s a great show. I’m also a huge fan of those actors, love Matt Smith.
“I do see the resemblance. I see the scarf, I see the coat, I see the bow tie. I suppose the briefcase has a TARDIS vibe to it – so yeah!”
However, just before you all get too excited, the actor has plenty on his plate, especially with another four Fantastic Beasts sequels on the way: “It looks like a lot of work. I’ve spoken to Matt [Smith] and those schedules are pretty rigorous. Maybe when I’m 73.”
Is it just us or does a 73-year-old Eddie Redmayne seem perfect for a return to the classic old version of the character?
Ok, let us know what you all think…
