-Eddie, you play a wizard in “Fantastic Beasts:
The Crimes of Grindelwald.” Were you into magic
as a kid at all? -I was — I was properly — I was sort of embarrassingly
into magic as a kid. ‘Cause I — you know how kids have magicians
for their birthday and stuff? -Yeah.
-But normally until
about the age of 8, 9 may be pushing it, 10, 11.
-Yeah. -At age 15, 18,
no one came to the parties, but I still had — I was still
inviting magicians, so… -Really?
-Yeah, yeah, properly in to it. -I remember getting books
out of the library that were just
magic trick books. I think they technically
counted as books, so I was reading —
I was reading books. -A proper book.
-Yeah, exactly. -I had a little brother who was about six years younger
than me, so it was the perfect audience. I could do magic tricks on him. I tried ventriloquism. And he got to about the age of
well, 3, being able to speak, and he was like, “I can see
your mouth is moving.” -“Yeah, I’m not
going to do that.” -No.
So that was the end of my — -But do you remember any tricks? -I can do a trick for you,
-I can try. -All right,
this will be fantastic. All right, here we go. -Okay. I need a — -Oh, wow, here we go.
Sure, yeah. -I basically — I basically
wore a roll neck because I feel like
only magicians can pull off roll necks. And, like, so — Okay, so here
in this pocket here… -Okay.
-Not in that pocket.
In this pocket. …I have a special something
for you, Jimmy. And it’s a letter with your name
written on it in really, like,
Hogwartsian writing. -Yes, it is.
-I just want you to hold that. I want you to hold that.
Just keep that, look at that. Hold it. Don’t touch it.
Just look at it. Okay. Next out,
what do I have in my — Oh, here,
I have a pack of cards. -Okay.
-Not any cards. Actually,
Jimmy Fallon brand cards. -Oh, yeah. We do have our own
kind of — we have our — -You have your own
brand of cards! That’s the greatest thing ever! Okay.
-Isn’t that awesome? -So I’m going to take
these cards out. And because they’re
your own brand, you know that there’s nothing
dodgy about these cards. -These are, like, professional.
These are the best cards
you can get. -In the world. Okay, good.
-Yes. -So, I’m just gonna — I’m gonna
basically take these cards. I’m gonna rifle through them. And I want to you shout “stop”
when you feel like it. -Okay.
-Okay. But you have to shout it. Okay?
Ready, steady, go. -Stop!
-Okay, I want you to
look at that card. -Yes.
-Can you see the card, Jimmy? -Yes, I can.
-Can you guys? Can the camera see the card?
-Yes. -Okay, okay, okay. I want you
to remember that card. Can you see the card?
Okay, good. Now, can you help me? -Okay, of course.
-Remember that spell
we just learned? -Yes.
-Can you lick — [ Laughter ] I want you to lick this. I’m going to try to make
the card disappear, and I need your spittle, Fallon. [ Laughter ] -Oh, my gosh. I knew something
was coming up with that. All right, so you want me
to lick this? -I just want to try
and make that card disappear. But I need you to kind of
think of the card, and I need to you lick
the pack of cards. And my hands might vibrate
as it happens. [ Laughter ] -Okay.
-Okay. Okay, good work.
Let’s see if it’s gone, okay? So can you see your card here,
anywhere there, Jimmy? -No.
-Okay. A little flourish.
-Wow, yeah. -Can you see your card there,
anywhere here? -No, I can’t. -No! This has nothing to do
with the trick. I just love doing it. Anywhere there? -Bizarre. No. -No, no, Jimmy, well, no, because I have a potion
in my roll neck that I brought from Hogwarts,
all the way. And it is made — This is crushed powder
made with Niffler feces. -Wow. -That was a bit much, wasn’t it?
-It was a bit much. Yeah, yeah, but still,
it’s good. I like it. Enjoying this.
-You see, there’s nothing
in my hand. -Yes.
There’s nothing in your hand. -So I’m going to take
this excrement here. -Yes. Be careful with that.
-And I’m going to gently just pour that over my hand. -I hope I don’t
have to lick this. -Well… -Here we go.
-Okay. [ Blows ] -Hmm. -Think of your card, Jimmy.
-No. Whoa, look at that! Seven of diamonds. [ Cheers and applause ] There’s more. There’s more!
-There’s more, there’s more, there’s more,
because look in your envelope. [ Drumroll ] -This is what I think it is… Wow, it’s wax.
-It’s waxed. -Wow!
-It could be an invitation
to Hogwarts. That might be slightly more
exciting than what it is. -Dude, you did it, man. Oh, my gosh!
Look at that! Look at that!
You see it? [ Cheers and applause ] You know what you’re doing!
You know what you’re doing! Eddie Redmayne, everybody!
