"Entertainment Weekly" has released a list of the 50 Smartest People in Hollywood. Seeking to create a list of "of the people who are rocking the industry's world this year, the people with ideas – innovative, creative, dangerous, renegade ideas – who are changing the way movies are made," the magazine ranks Harry Potter producer David Heyman at the number nine spot. They write:

"He has expertly steered the highest-grossing global franchise in film history. Heyman secured the rights to the Harry Potterbooks in 1997 and has done just about everything right since, including bonding with author J.K. Rowling and wisely seeking her input. He helped find unexpected directors (e.g., Alfonso Cuarón, David Yates) who've kept things fresh. And he's kept the cast intact through five films, without any of his three teenage stars succumbing to a Lohanesque episode. While Warner Bros. president Alan Horn deserves credit for making the correct macro decisions, the franchise's success rests on a thousand micro choices Heyman made, including creating a world, on set and on screen, where people want to be. "

Congrats David!

Guess That Book

"If I'd brought a toad I'd lose it as quick as I could. Mind you, I brought Scabbers, so I can't talk."[br]The rat was still snoozing on Ron's lap.[br]"He might have died and you wouldn't know the difference," said Ron in disgust.
