Perfect role for the big kid (x)

AP Exclusive: Redmayne lends voice to "Thomas & Friends"
The No. 1 blue engine is getting a new friend in Eddie Redmayne.
Fresh off an Oscar win for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything," the British actor will be heard in the next installment in the "Thomas & Friends" series, "Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure."
The 60-minute CGI feature will be released on DVD by HIT Entertainment in the fall of 2015.
Redmayne voices the role of Ryan, a new engine on the Island of Sodor who Thomas meets on a quest.
"I grew up loving to watch Thomas and his pals getting caught up in unexpected and mischievous adventures. 
I jumped at the opportunity to get involved and what fun it was! I have never voiced an animated character before, 
and I had a complete blast," said Redmayne in a statement.
Also joining in on the adventure are "Harry Potter" alums John Hurt, as Sailor John, and Jamie Campbell Bower 
as Skiff. - Read more
