Eddie Redmayne won't get to use his beautiful voice in his next role!

The Les Misérables star has been cast as renowned physicist Stephen Hawking in the upcoming biopic Theory Of Everything!

As you know, Hawking's battle with ALS has left him able to communicate only by controlling a special computer with his cheek muscles. Despite this, he has written many books and papers on theoretical physics, including time travel and black holes.

So we're just going to say it right now — this has Oscar potential written all over it!

Russell Crowe was nominated for A Beautiful Mind and minds don't get much more beautiful than the Brief History Of Time physicist's!

Not to mention transforming his physical appearance and going a whole movie without singing.

    I can't wait to see this movie. My father passed away from ALS 9 years ago at the age of 42. He lasted four years. Stephen Hawking is a beautiful example of how ALS does not kill your mind. Unfotunately it speaks to just how sad the disease really is. Your entire body dies while your brain and heart live. I only wish that my father could have figured out the same way that Dr. Hawking has managed to live with ALS for 50 years.
