Dung Gone It! More Rumblings on Deathly Hallows Casting for a Smelly, Sneaky Thief

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!

Hm, to me, he’s not at all how I imagined. Still, at least they’re casting him. But how are they going to introduce him?!

How COOL! He looks great for the part. I imagined Mundungus a bit younger though…

Why are they tossing all these characters in at the last possible moment?

He’s way too good looking to be Dung!!!

Does anyone here listen to `The Bugle’ podcast (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/us_elections/the_bugle/)? Andy Zaltzman is exactly how I pictured Dung. :)

pretty darn close to howi pictured Mundungus, just give him some shabby robes and a couple days growth of beard and dirty him up a bit and you have it perfect

Did Sue just start a news headline with “Dung gone it”? Yes…yes she did. And that is why we love her.
