Imelda Staunton I recognize and will make a capable Umbridge, although when reading the book Judy Dench kept popping into my head as what she would look like. Beyond that dont recognize any of them, although I dont think those roles are screaming for anyone in particular, with the exception of Lestrange maybe needing someone a little menacing.

I know Raiders like the back of my hand, but even I didn't know who this guy was until I looked it up on the IMDB.

He's the guy who played Katanga, the boat captain. "Mr. Jones. . . I've heard a lot about you, Sir. Your appearance is exactly the way I imagined!"

I've never seen him in anything else, so this'll be neat if it pans out. And Kingsley Shacklebot's a cool character, too.

Imelda Staunton... ?! ... awesome - the casting for the film series has been brilliant. I keep on thinking Peter Mullan might hop on board at some point.

I love him in Boy Meets World.



My favorite part of seeing Goblet of Fire was when all the 13-14 year old girls in the theater all said with disdain "Boy, he got fat" when Potter appeared on-screen.

I'm not sure Judi Dench is "toadish" enough ....

George Harris was also in Layer Cake. He kicked ass in that role.

Who the fuck is "Magorian"? Phoenix is my least favorite book so can someone refresh me who this character is? I might even skip this one in the theaters. I'll just wait out HBP.

Magorian was one of the centaurs at the end of the book
Spoiler:
when the trio leads umbridge into the forest

I don't remember the role even being that significant.

If you mean Cho, yes, she has some significant scenes with Harry in book 5.

She looks like she could be a good Luna. Though what really matters is her ability to act spacey, which we can't judge too well from a still picture.

I always imagined Patricia Routledge of Keeping Up Appearances in that role.

Hmmm ... I wonder what the backstory with that is. Talk about causing a major continuity problem.

That's odd because Sirius Black plays an important role in the book. I don't know how they're going to show the pivotal scene with Sirius Black in the Ministry of Magic without him being there.

Sheesh.

That site simply indicates that they have not yet approached Oldman to continue the role.

True, but since it's obvious casting is in full swing, and production is to start soon, wouldn't they have secured Oldman earlier? He's quite a diverse actor and can sign on with any film, while the kids are obviously attached to HP no matter what.

Seems like what Fox did with Singer and X-Men to me. ASSUME he's waiting to be signed whenever they get around to it.
