Several times in the past, cast members have discussed the possibility of playing themselves 19 years in the future for the epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. MTV has a new interview online tonight with actor Tom Felton who says he has not had confirmation yet on how that scene will be handled. Quotage:



"For the big-screen adaptation, does that mean older actors will portray Harry and the rest of the grown-up students? Or that the young stars will be aged through makeup effects or CGI technology? No decision has been made, according to Tom Felton, who plays peroxide-blond villain Draco Malfoy. "We haven't shot that yet, and I still haven't had the confirmation whether I'm doing it or we're going to get someone else to do it," he told MTV News while promoting the DVD for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." "I haven't heard too much. I guess they're still making decisions about it now. It is a very exciting scene. I know Daniel [Radcliffe] and I have talked about it and said it'd be a lot of fun to do."


Tom later weighed in with more: "While Felton joked that he'd be cool with having Brad Pitt or Leonardo DiCaprio step in to play an adult Draco, the British actor maintained that he's looking forward to seeing what he will look like 19 years in the future. "It'd be kind of freaky to see what they come up with," he said
."

It would be amazing to see what these actors look like aged… I don’t think there are current actors who could step in (even if TF is dreaming of Brad or Leo playing his character;)

I think that they should try making the current actors future-selves, see how they look, and if they look freakie change to other actors. And Dicapio would probably make a fairly good Draco… :)
