hahaha I like the nickname he gives himself at the end (apparently if I write it here my comment won’t be posted because it’s considered profanity, so please read the article or watch the video if you want to know what I’m talking about, lol). I like this guy, he’s cute too.

I hope he’s good as young Grindelwald. They would have chosen someone who at least have read one book or so, but we’ll see soon if he’s good or bad.

Wooooo!!!! Jamie!!!! Ah he is amazing. Like people have already said, he does seem almost perfect for Grindlewald- what he seemed like in the book. Ah we are so cool (David Yates) :D
Yay he know everybody almost already – ST and HP are verry close indeed :)

He looks perfect for the part of Grindelwald, in my eyes.
As for Johnny Depp, he’s really the one still missing in the cast. But what part to give him? He can act different characters, but I don’t know whom he could play in HP. Maybe Ludo Bagman (if they had kept him in) or Sirius, even young Dumbledore. Hmmm… or just some random Deatheater, as a joke, or a portrait – Sir Cadogan behaving like Captain Jack Sparrow :P

I think he looks like a woman but I hope he plays the part well.

Can’t wait to see Grindelwald and Dumbledore. I wonder what scenes they will show.
