  • -Eddie! Oh, look at you. -Hey, Jimmy, how are you?

  • -Last time I saw you, by the way, you and your wife just had

  • another baby, so now you have two kids now.

  • How old are they now?

  • -So, we have Iris, who's 4, and Luke, who is 2.

  • -Geez. And where have you been for the last few months?

  • -Do you know, we've been really lucky.

  • We've been -- Fortunately everyone has remained healthy.

  • Until I just started shooting again,

  • we were in the countryside, which was wonderful.

  • There was space for the kids to play.

  • We basically -- We sort of became like an animal sanctuary

  • while we were there, which was --

  • -A lot of people have done this.

  • I have a lot of friends that have done this.

  • Did you get, like -- Did you get -- Did you get chickens?

  • -I mean, we are basically a parody of lockdown.

  • We do have chickens.

  • We have five chickens whom my daughter named.

  • They're called Belinda, Sally Henny Penny,

  • Blanket, Flower, and Henry.

  • -[ Laughs ] -And they arrived,

  • and they had come from -- they were sort of battery chickens,

  • so they didn't look that well, but we kind of nurtured them

  • to health, and I spent most of lockdown

  • running into other people's gardens, trying to sort of

  • retrieve chickens that were causing havoc.

  • -[ Laughs ] That's wild.

  • -My wife took great satisfaction from it

  • because she basically on day one kind of just bought me a drill

  • and gave me a drill, and just kind of said,

  • "Here. Learn how to use that. Build me a chicken hutch."

  • And so I built a chicken hutch, which is like a triumphant --

  • -You built it yourself?

  • -I did build it.

  • I mean, it was kind of flat-packed, so I --

  • and I succeeded in kind of the bit

  • where the air was meant to come in.

  • I got a bit wrong, so I ended up having to drill

  • holes around it, but genuinely the amount of pride

  • having built a chicken hutch gave me

  • was sort of overwhelming.

  • -I just have pride because I own a drill.

  • I've never used it, but I own it.

  • I go, "I know where it is." -I completely agree.

  • -I can tell you exactly where it is.

  • I think I have to charge it up before I use it,

  • but the fact that I own it, I go,

  • "If you ever need me to drill anything, honey."

  • She's like, "I'm good."

  • -I've got it.

  • The second you get into drilling, it's just like

  • the most satisfying thing in the world.

  • -You want to drill everything.

  • -I was sort of walking around, drilling random holes

  • in random walls just because it gave me some odd pleasure.

  • -Did the chickens -- Do they lay eggs?

  • -The chickens -- You know, they started off

  • not being that keen for laying eggs.

  • They were kind of molting and not that happy,

  • and gradually, as they kind of fed well,

  • they ended up laying tons of eggs,

  • which is great except for the fact that I loathe eggs.

  • I kind of hate eggs.

  • So I would sort of have to carry these eggs in, in the morning.

  • Sort of not really wanting --

  • but doing that thing you do with your children.

  • -[ Retching ]

  • Just take it away.

  • -We were adopted by two stray cats during lockdown,

  • as in these two very beautiful black cats just came and started

  • purring at our door, and so again, my daughter named them.

  • One she called Catty Redman.

  • And then the other one, who had slightly spiky ears

  • and looked a bit terrifying, she called Scary Catty Redman.

  • So Scary Catty Redman and Catty Redman then ended up,

  • of course, coming into the house and everything,

  • which is all great, except for I'm deeply allergic to cats.

  • And so this sort of cat allergy, egg, animal sanctuary thing

  • was wonderful in theory but slightly stressful in reality.

  • -Dad of the year.

  • I'll give you props for that.

  • I could not go near -- I am allergic to cats too.

  • -Are you really? There you go, Jimmy.

  • -Yeah. We should be roommates.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • So you just started a production on "The Fantastic Beasts."

  • -Yeah, yes. -How is everything going there?

  • -Well, we'd done a day of shooting before COVID-19

  • really hit the U.K. proper.

  • So we started on a Friday and then on a Sunday night it all --

  • we were all told to go home.

  • And then just a few weeks ago we started again,

  • and it's a different world,

  • but we're so lucky to be back in work, and it's interesting.

  • It's kind of like -- Film crews are amazing people.

  • And they're very adaptable people, and so we have --

  • there's a lot of testing.

  • There is -- You know, we're in bubbles

  • and we're all masked, but it's been kind of --

  • To begin with, I thought how is this going to be?

  • And this ended up being actually kind of great.

  • So it's nice to be back at work. I feel very lucky.

  • -You come on my show normally to talk about "Fantastic Beasts,"

  • but always it's so secretive.

  • -Yeah. Very secretive.

  • -You're not even allowed to tell me what it's about.

  • But you showed me a trick or a move before.

  • Can you tell us something about this one?

  • -Do you know what?

  • Genuinely I'm not being, like, sycophantic,

  • but one of the, like, joys of promoting

  • a "Fantastic Beasts" movie is getting to come and force you

  • to do some ridiculous dance move.

  • It did cross my mind.

  • I can't tell you anything about the new film,

  • otherwise I'll -- you know, someone will get furious,

  • but there is a moment which I've been sort of working on

  • and hoping will remain in the film

  • and which I have been trying to find some sort of

  • dinky little thing that I can teach you to add.

  • So I mean, I can't -- I couldn't do it now,

  • but I'm hoping that come November, we'll have another --

  • we can add one more move.

  • We should go dancing one night and just beast

  • those "Fantastic Beasts" moves out.

  • -Deal. I will do that with you.

  • Virtual handshake on that, yeah.

  • Or elbow bump.

  • I would totally do that with you.

  • I will go dancing with you whenever.

  • That's the best.

  • I want to talk about "The Trial of the Chicago 7."

  • Can you stick around and we can talk about that?

  • -I would love that, man.

  • -Awesome. More with Eddie Redmayne, everybody.

  • ♪ -I get the job done

-Eddie! Oh, look at you. -Hey, Jimmy, how are you?
