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 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.

I think of note is the fact that they said that Gleeson is signed on for the first installment of the movie. That means that if they are going to to shell cottage (and I really don’t think that they can get around it) that it is going to be in the first half of the movie. Interesting…

Fantastic! Although I would’ve liked to have seen them both two movies ago.

Fabulous. I’ve seen Domhnall in theatre in Dublin before and he’s a very charismatic presence – I hadn’t thought of him as a choice for Bill before, but it all fits into place very nicely. :)

Yea! we’re getting a Bill. I wonder if they will have him as a bachelor at Shell Cottage or if they will actually put in Fleur.
