I thought this article from People.com was awesome … where Daniel Radcliffe talks about being jealous of Eddie!
Even though he’s left his glasses and his magic wand behind, Daniel Radcliffe still got a severe case of “costume envy” when he saw the new wizard in town – fellow Brit, Eddie Redmayne.
“Oh f— you, Eddie, in your brilliant costume – I got jeans and a zip top for 10 years and you’ve got a great coat already?” he joked to NME magazine about Redmayne’s character in the highly anticipated Harry Potter spinoff film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is currently filming in the U.K.
Due for release in 2016, the film, written by J.K Rowling, is set in the same magical world of the Potter films but in New York instead of the U.K., and 70 years before Harry’s story begins.
As Entertainment Weekly recently revealed, the Oscar-winning Redmayne, 33, plays eccentric wizard Newt Scamander, who wears a dapper, teal, three-quarter length coat over a wool suit, accessorized with a wand.
