A followup today regarding our two previous reports of possible casting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Good News: As TLC first reported a few days ago, actor Andy Linden (photo here) has indeed been cast in the role of dodgy Order of the Phoenix member Mundungus Fletcher, according to his agents who confirmed this directly to TLC.

 Broadway World.com is also now reporting that Domhnall Gleeson "is expected to sign on for the final installment of the big screen’s blockbuster Harry Potter series, The Deathly Hallows." As we noted previously, the son of Brendan Gleeson (Mad-Eye Moody), Domhnall (photo here) will take on the role of Bill Weasley. Filming is currently underway for both parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in London, England.

Hallelujah! I am so happy about this that if I was so tired and grumpy I’d be singing and skipping around the house right now. Chamber of Secrets was on the disney channel twice last night did anyone else catch it? And don’t even ask what a 22yr old is doing watching disney, but I was checking the tv listings looking for something else yesterday morning and naturally the words “Harry Potter” instantly had my attention. Watching it reminded me of how brilliant and perfect many of the castings have been. I mean Kenneth Brannagh as Lockheart and one of my personal favorite of course Jason Isaacs as Lucius. I must admit I think my all time favorite is Helena being cast as Bellatrix.

all in all good choices.

but once again the only problem that i have is with dung because i always saw him as a bit younger just ragged and looks like he hasn’t slept in weeks.

I’m curious to see how this will work out. Will Bill and Fleur just have a wedding out of the blue? Will it be Tonk and Remus and totally NOT canon? hmm…

bella vita, don’t worry. I’m 24 and i watch disney still. :P Ginevra86, i think there might be a one liner from Ron in the 6th—or at least I’m hoping will mention Bill marrying Fleur. :) Otherwise, i’m out of ideas as to how they’d make the smooth transition. I think Domhall and Andy will do a good job, i’m glad that both of these characters are cast, it gives me faith that the movie will be what we hope it is. :)

Well at least shell cottage should be in but until we hear something about Fleur then we still don’t know about the wedding.

Yay! I still wish they’d put Dung in OotP though. I wanted to see Mrs.Figg beat him up with her cat food. LOL! =]
