Eddie Redmayne Really Wants to Play Bananaman, Like Really Bad

Eddie Redmayne Really Wants to Play Bananaman, Like Really Bad

Eddie Redmayne gets together with host Sofia Coppola and co-star Felicity Jones while attending a special screening of The Theory of Everything held at the MoMa Screening Room on Tuesday evening (November 18) in New York City.

The 32-year-old actor was also joined by AnnaSophia Robb and Gotham‘s Robin Lord Taylor.

“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.’”
