Good Morning, Gratuitous Callum Turner

.
I have one thing and one thing only to be thankful to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and that's Jude Law's Pants. But let's say I had two things. If we said that I'd say the second thing was getting me to finally take proper note of Callum Turner, the model turned actor  who plays Eddie Redmayne's brother in distress.
.
Callum has been bouncing around for a little while -- he was the lead singer of the punk band in Jeremy Saulnier's brutally fantastic Green Room in 2015, and he played some fellow Assassin of Michael Fassbender's in Assassin's Creed (am I really expected to remember anything about that movie?) Oh and best of all he played...

... the dude that Jake Gyllenhaal murders in the opening moments of the band called The Shoes' music video for their song "Time To Dance" which you can watch in full right here. He's dallied with all my faves! Strangely enough...

... he also co-stars in this 2017 movie called Mobile Homes with his Green Room co-star Imogen Poots that a friend of mine has randomly brought up twice over the past week and a half that I'd never even heard of before - have any of you seen it? Guess I've got to now...
.
Anyway I thought he was good casting in Fantastic Beasts because he is both believably that weirdo Eddie Redmayne's brother as well as hotter and more likable, complicating who we're supposed to be rooting for among that movie's tepid love triangles a wee bit. 

I guess Harry Potter producer David Heyman thought so too because Callum's next role is the lead in a BBC "conspiracy thriller" called The Capture from Heyman - other than that we'll have to wait and see. While that happens let's hit the jump for dozens and dozens of pictures (I did mention earlier he did got his start doing some modeling after all) then...

He was also very good and charming in a little movie called Tramps, it's on Netflix.

He also went full frontal on the British series "Glue" a few years back.
