As promised, MTV has now released their Summer Movie Preview of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, including 4 new video interviews with actress Emma Watson and actor Dan Radcliffe. In the videos, Emma discusses her character of Hermione Granger and the emotions when dealing with Ron and his new girlfriend. Dan Radcliffe delves in a bit more on Harry Potter and the character of Snape in HBP, played by Alan Rickman.

Also at this link, MTV has posted a new interview with producer David Heyman, where he talks the casting of Slughorn, played by Oscar winning actor Jim Broadbent. "He was absolutely our first choice," Heyman recalled. "You look at Jim's eyes, and you can read so much into them." What there also is besides great drama is great humor and great humanity," he said. According to Heyman, nailing Slughorn's casting was crucial to balancing out those dimensions in the sixth movie."We wanted Slughorn to be a source of humor," the producer said. "You wanted a character who had airs of grandeur but at the same time was really sympathetic and tragic."

I am confused. I always was under the impression that Miss Watson has read the book? “Hermione might realize that she might have some feelings for Ron” ? She realized that at the latest in GoF, Book AND Movie. And McLaggen is not a better keeper than Ron. That was the whole point really. Oh, well.

I’m in Australia and some of these are working for me. For those of you that can’t see the videos the one with Emma is bascially her explaining the how she realises she likes Ron, who then goes out with Lavender, and she mentioned that “it was nice to play a comedy role, because in the last one I had to be so concerned,” those weren’t her exact lines, but it was basically what she said.

I really liked these. Something new to talk about. I really like that Emma is going to be able to stretch her acting skills in this one, being more comedic that worried and dramatic all the time.

I really enjoyed what Dan had to say about Harry and Snape. He is really concerned about making sure that the tention between them is addressed in so little time.
