Stephen Hawking is the hero of the new movie The Theory of Everything, but he dreams of being a villain. The famous physicist, who is portrayed by Eddie Redmayne in the new biopic, recently told Wired that he would love to make an appearance in a James Bond film. “My ideal role would be a baddie in James Bond,” said Hawking (via The Hollywood Reporter).
Eddie Redmayne is considered by many to be the frontrunner for the Best Actor Oscar, thanks to his remarkable performance as legendary scientist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. “Please, I’m desperate to do Bananaman,” Redmayne told Yahoo Movies recently, revealing his love for the early ‘80s British cartoon. “Bananaman is this great guy who eats a banana, and he becomes Bananaman,” Redmayne explained earnestly.
In the acclaimed new biopic The Theory of Everything, audiences will discover many details about the life of famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne), including more about his rapid physical deterioration from a motor neuron disease and the stress his condition placed on his relationship with his wife Jane (Felicity Jones). What they won’t see, however, is Jane and Stephen being intimate.
Eddie Redmayne tells Yahoo Movies about his intense physical prep to play Stephen Hawking in 'The Theory of Everything' including dance training and acupuncture.
