Thanks to Oclumencia for letting us know about two new promo photos of actor Jim Broadbent in his role as Professor Slughorn in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. You can see these photos, here and here.
Ahh! So excited about the pictures. I’ve been hoping for some good ones of ol’ Sluggy.
These look good. Jim broadbent is great. He isn’t what i thought of as slughorn but he is a great actor so i am sure he will do great.
awesome! he looks pretty mad tho lol !
Nice photos! lol. But: Is my idea or Slughorn looks (in these photos) just like Mr Bean. (Rowan Atkinson)? I recall the same face expressions and (now that I give a thought on it) it seems like if they had the same personality.
Mad for plaid! Weird how his one jacket cuff has a button hanging from it….
am I the only one who hasn’t seen the promo shots of harry and draco that’s on there, too??
Pretty fierce Slughorn photos. I also think the profile images of Harry/Malfoy are amazing! Intense, brooding, face-off….I love the tension there!
You’re not the only one who didn’t see the photos of Harry and Draco. How did I miss them?!?! Oh, well. I really like them, though. The intensity of them are great. And I enjoyed the Slughorn photos as well. :)
omg i actually CANT wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!
I’m a little disappointed by the choice of Broadbent to play Slughorn. He doesn’t look anything like JKR’s description of Slughorn in the books i.e. with large belly etc. what does everyone else think?
I completely agree Miss Twiddle – definitely not fat enough to play Slughorn – I can’t see his belly preceding him into a room! Having said that Jim Broadbent is a splendid actor – I’ve never seen him give a bad performance so I’m sure he’ll do the best he can
Hey Sue! You are most welcome! But as I think I’m the only Thio around here (at least I hope so) and I’m pretty sure I didn’t send you guys any picture, I can only assume you got my nick up there by mistake.
But thanks anyway! =9
I never seen those Harry Draco face off pictures either!! How did I miss those?!
I definitely like the site more for the photos of Harry/Draco than the ones of Slughorn.
I wouldn’t have pictured Slughorn as the type to have cuff buttons hanging off by a thread, would you? I thought he was rather posh and liked everything just so.
Slughorn is probably one of my least favourite characters. I don’t know why, but he just is. Still, loving anything from HBP that comes out.
