Dumbledore cast for new HP Movies (not Ian McKellan)

It’s an actor named Michael Gambon

Also, Gary Oldman was cast as Sirius Black.


Hmm… I’d heard Gambon mentioned by the rumor mill, but wasn’t expecting him to get the part.

Still, I liked him a lot as Maigret in the BBC mystery series, so he should do fine.

No, no, no. They should’ve hired Tim Roth for the role. I will not be completely happy with a Harry Potter movie until I see Tim Roth in one of the roles.

And Timothy Spall as Peter Pettigrew, David Thewlis as Professor Lupin.

I can easily picture Oldman as Sirius. He can get an emiated look to him quite easily.

I know nothing about Spall and Tewlis, but I wish there was a picture for Thewlis, just to give me imagery.

No! Professor Lupin was supposed to be played by Eddie Izzard! Gaaahh!

Although I do like the choice of Gary Oldman for Sirius. I wish I had thought of it myself.

Actually, I’ve imagined Tim Roth as Lupin for some time. I’m pretty pleased with Gary Oldman as Sirius, though.
