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.
