Eddie Redmayne, a Zoo Unto Himself, Really, Really, Really Commits to Some Animal Impressions

Ellen Degeneres is a mad TV genius who lives to make Hollywood stars dance, neigh, and bark for your amusement. Today’s victim: Eddie Redmayne, who does a series of animal impressions with a level of bizarre commitment that’s only outmatched by his efforts in Jupiter Ascending. Forget The Danish Girl and The Theory of Everything, give Eddie an Oscar for the raw honesty of “monkey,” and the moving subtlety of “penguin.”

They say great art speaks for itself, so we’ll leave it at that.
