CRUSHWORTHY: Eddie Redmayne from Les Misérables

I saw him in the trailer for My Week with Marilyn. Nothing. I saw Les Misérables. Nothing. I saw him play a limping, child-kidnapping, pedophile cowboy in Hick. Swoon. I don't know what that says about me personally, but it speaks volumes of Redmayne. That he could get a girl to fall while playing such an irredeemable character, with a slowburn transition from fragile to lethal, is rather impressive. His nude, pouty lips, freckled skin, and mysterious eyes are just a bonus.

Past Films: The Good Shepherd as Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie's neglected son; Savage Grace as Julianne Moore's schizophrenic son; Elizabeth: The Golden Age as an assassin hired to kill the queen; The Yellow Handkerchief* as a geeky outcast; The Other Boleyn Girl as Scarlett Johansson's suitor; Powder Blue* as a reluctant mortician with bad asthma; Black Death* as a monk seeking a supernatural cure to the bubonic plague; Hick*; My Week with Marilyn as an aspiring filmmaker who is obsessed with the icon; Les Misérables as a revolutionary.

Future Films: Jupiter Ascending, a Wachowski film, where he'll star alongside Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. It's a dystopian sci-fi action film about a woman who is targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe to prevent being overthrown. It's like a futuristic Snow White.

*Available on Netflix Instant Watch.
