We’ve discovered just how far into his own mouth Adam Levine can stick his own foot, and watched Kennedy Holmes kick ass. And we’ve sat through so many of Carson Daly’s inane questions for the contestants that we’ve all but given up groaning like Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers when he asks ’em. But Monday night,

The Five Best Eddie Redmayne Movies of His Career

Eddie Redmayne seemed to have come out of nowhere when he really started getting popular, but in truth he’s been acting since he was much younger and has been in show business since the late 90s.
