Rumblings on Possible Casting for Bill Weasley for Deathly Hallows and More

We have some interesting rumblings today regarding possible castings for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Rumors have reached our ears that Domhnall Gleeson, the son of actor Brendan Gleeson (Mad-Eye Moody) will be portraying Bill Weasley in the final Harry Potter films. You can see a photo of Domhnall here. Domhnall Gleeson is an upcoming actor, known in the theater world having received a Tony nomination in 2006 for his work in The Lieutenant of Inishmore.  Also word is that the role of Mundungus Fletcher has also been cast, but there is no actor's name available as of yet.

Please note: As fans will recall, we had heard from actress Clemence Poesy last year that her character of Fleur was not to be in Half-Blood Prince, but remained uncertain if she was to be back for Deathly Hallows. We do not know if the rumor of a possible casting of Bill Weasely indicates the wedding scene may be in or simply just Shell cottage, or what all of this may mean, thus, we do caution to please treat this very much as a rumor for now. As always, we are working to find out more on this, and will update with more when we can, stay tuned!

He really looks the part! I hope he really does this! This is one of the actors who, like Evanna seems really good for his/her part.btw, evanna is GREAT, but I haven’t seen Domhnall act yet (I’m sure he’ll be great too)

I so want to see the scenes at Shell Cottage on screen. Especially the burial of Dobby.

I hope this is true! He doesn’t look exatly how I imagined Bill but he definatly does look like a Weasley, and I think he could pull it off. I also hope they bring back Fleur! It wouldn’t take too much, just subtly having Ron talk about his oldest brother and how he’s getting married.

Also, can’t wait to see who they cast as Dung!

Someone has to be an idiot to not have already cast him as Bill. He looks just like a Weasley, and nothing like a Moody.

It says in the given site that he has already worked in Goblet of fire. But which role did he play there? Surely, Bill wasn’t there!

I’m going to be ticked if they cut the Weasley-Delacour wedding out of DH part 1.

aaTmaHira The article refers to BRENDAN Gleeson working on Goblet of Fire, not Domhnall. I’m looking forward to seeing Shell Cottage in the film, I think it possible they could use Bill without Fleur if they wanted to, but I rather hope not.
