View Full Version : And the new Dumbledore is...

...Sir Michael Gambon, according to reports (http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/tv_film/newsid_2619000/2619341.stm) from unconfirmed sources by E! News.
He certainly lacks the star power of a Harris, O'Toole, McKellen, Nimoy, and the other names posited, but he's said to be very talented (and 10 years ago, McKellen was relatively unknown and O'Toole/Harris were has-beens).

Yes, I think this one is actually legit. Very wise choice.

I liked him in Longitude. Good show.

He did a good job in Wives and Daughters, too

Pepper Mill and I discssed this, and thought O'Toole would be the best choice. God knows he's had similar roles, and he looks similar enough. I'm afraid I don't know Gambon, so I can;t offer an opinion about him.
Hey, why not McKellan? He can be Gandalf and Dumbledore, and sew up the lucrative pop wizard franchise.

Gambon was evil-incarnate in The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover

I heard it was going to be Carrot Top in the Dumbledore role.

Dang. I was going to offer my services.
At far below superstar rates, too.

Oh, almost forgot - Sir Michael Gambon (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Gambon,+Michael) was great in Gosford Park as well.

Hastur, don't ever do that to me again! Some things are just not acceptable, even as jokes...
