Geoffrey Rush mimics Einstein at Tribeca Film Festival

 

It’s EYEnstein! Quirky Geoffrey Rush strikes Albert Einstein’s iconic wide-eyed expression on the red carpet at Genius premiere

He’s the Australian icon who can count himself among the select few to be honoured with the ‘triple crown’ of acting as the recipient of Emmy, Tony and Oscar awards.

And on Thursday, Geoffrey Rush, 65, looked ready to add a Nobel Prize for physics to the mix at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Albert Einstein biographical TV series ‘Genius.’

Still sporting the long, scruffy hair he donned for his portrayal of the celebrated scientist, he completed the look by mimicking one of the German’s trademark wide-eyed facial expression.

The King’s Speech star channelled  his Genius character on the red carpet while maintaining his suave sense of fashion with a crisp Navy suit.

Just like E = MC² revolutionary Albert, Geoffrey flaunted a youthful, wide-eyed gaze in snaps before later offering a rock-and-roll inspired ‘devil horns’ hand gesture to photographers.

Later, he held his arms outstretched toward the cameras, closing his eyes and tilting his head downwards.

In snaps that showed him cuddled up to redheaded co-star Johnny Flynn, Geoffrey held his hand close to the back of his messy hair in a gesture often used to describe someone being ‘mind-blown.’

Pictured seated in a leather chair at the film’s Tribeca panel, The Shakespeare In Love actor looked his usual suave, elegant self, appearing to be in deep thought as he stared into the crowd.

True method actor! The actor's portrayal of the scientist carried over to his posture, which was somewhat slouched, with his arms held awkwardly and stiff in one image

Despite playing a respected physicist, the role will depict some of the lesser-known behaviours of the mathematical genius, including raunchy scenes featuring Albert’s younger mistresses.

Praised by critics for his accurate and intriguing portrayal, Geoffrey will look to add to his long list of awards which includes an Oscar for Shine, an Emmy for The Life and Death Of Peter Sellers and a Tony award for Exit The King.

Genius premieres in Australia on 24 April on the National Geographic channel.
