Dung gone it, we have more rumors today regarding a possible casting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Word has it that the part of dodgy Order of the Phoenix member Mundungus Fletcher (who is,in the words of Snape, a 'smelly sneak thief') will be portrayed in the Deathly Hallows films possibly by character actor Andy Linden. A photo of the actor can be seen here, and here, with footage of Mr. Linden at the premiere of his recent film The Secret of Moonacre, here. Andy Linden also had a small role in the film "State of Play," which was directed by David Yates, who is of course helming both the Deathly Hallows films. As readers will recall, Mundungus Fletcher has a pivotal role in the events leading to the Seven Potter scene early on in the final Harry Potter novel. Please note, as with the other casting rumor of late, we are awaiting official confirmation,and thus we continue to urge caution and keep this in the rumor category for now. More when we get it!
I didn’t picture him quite like that, but I think that he looks like he could do a really great job! He just needs to not shave for a couple weeks, and he’d be perfect!
Honestly I feel the same way about this dung casting rumor as I do the one about casting bill, for once I couldn’t care less what either of these actors look like because I am so excited that there are even rumors of casting these characters that they could make bill weasley a blonde or brunette and it wouldn’t matter to me! That is how happy I will be if this is all true and we get both bill and dung! I had already resigned myself to the disappointment that we would never see either of them in the films and that if they even did the wedding scene at all bill and fleur would be replaced by tonks and lupin. So this at least gives me a little hope that we will see less changes and cuts than expcted and get to see characters that most of us never thought we would. However, I am still doing my best to keep my excitement to a minimum until we know for sure.
Weird, he looks like a “smelly, sneak thief” but he doesn’t look like Mundungus to me… I pictured Dung as being more… meek… haha. But he looks good I guess :)
