The “Beauty and the Beast” and “Legion” star Stevens joins Ferrell, Pierce Brosnan and Rachel McAdams in the spoof comedy about the Eurovision Song Contest, the longest running annual international TV song competition that is ripe for parody. “Eurovision” is in production now in the UK and Ireland.
