Fantastic Boys & Where To Find Them

I don't know if I ever knew that Ezra Miller was in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie but I must have forgotten it if I did because I was surprised, clicking on this new promotional picture from the film, to see him standing there next to Colin Farrell. According to EW, which is where the shot comes from:

“Everything’s like CIA-level,” Miller said. “If I tell you sh– about my character, I swear there’s a sniper up on the roof that will take me out. They told me like two little bits of information about the character [when I auditioned] and I just went in and went crazy, and just talked as if I were this person, who I knew nothing about. But it was funny – there actually ended up being a lot of things like what I was imagining. But getting the role was a moment of absolute ecstatic joy and sort of transcendent sense of completion. I was doing some sort of slightly epileptic dance in the street of New York City, dropping to my knees, crying, praising the heavens, with people looking at me like I should be institutionalized.”

Makes you think he is definitely the film's link to the Harry Potter verse, right? (Do we think he's related to Tom Riddle? He looks like a Riddle to me.) Why else would he be so thrilled?  I mean besides all the touching of Colin Farrell and/or the stimulants.

In other delightful (even more delightful, actually) Colin Farrell news, filming has officially begun (in Cincinnati of all places) on his reunion with The Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos on the movie called The Killing of a Sacred Deer, which co-stars Nicole Kidman. Oh and several other new cast-members have been announced, including Alicia Silverstone! Anyway there's more of a plot description now than I remember seeing before, so here:

"Farrell stars as Steven, a charismatic surgeon forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behavior of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister."
