The IMDB says:

The family of late Irish actor Richard Harris are urging the makers of Harry Potter to pass the part of Professor Dumbledore to his drinking friend Peter O'Toole. ...Harris' brother Noel says, "Dicky (Richard) made the role his own.

Just a note: the quotes do not preclude the possibility that the idea was presented to the family and these were their comments - that it would be a good idea if it happened, but not that they're starting a campaign for O'Toole. In fact, the quotes seem to support that they're responding to a query about O'Toole rather than bringing it up on their own - read the whole thing to decide for yourself. :-)
