Our First Look at Fantastic Beasts’ Newt Scamander is… Zoolander, is That You?

Entertainment Weekly has graced the world with our first look at Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander, star of the upcoming Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them, set in the Potterverse.

Check out that Blue Steel.

Really though, it’s a very Zoolander-ish expression he’s working there. On the other hand, that costume. Wow, it’s gorgeous. Very Eleventh Doctor, though the color scheme is warmer. (Coat. Want coat. Give coat?) And in case you didn’t notice, he’s standing on the seal of the Magical Congress of the Unites States. We’ve already had word that a good portion of the film will take place in America, and this is meant to be the USA’s answer to the Ministry of Magic. It’s housed in the Woolworth Building, according to EW.

Take a look at our handsome, floppy-haired hero (and forgive the terrible “Newt Kid on the Block” pun):
