CastWatch: Sean Biggerstaff on TV, Alice in Wonderland Trailer, More

HP Cast

Many readers have owled regarding cast members and their projects outside the Harry Potter films; as such here is a quick update.

First, Sean Biggerstaff will be seen here in the US this weekend on PBS in Miss Marple: 'Why didn't they ask Evans?'. Check your local listings for time and channel. Sean memorably portrayed Gryffindor Quidditch captain Oliver Wood in the first two Harry Potter films. Rumors abound he might be asked to return (along the scores of others already reported by TLC for DH) and while possible, this is pure speculation for the moment.

Director Tim Burton has released the trailer to his newest film "Alice Wonderland" starring his wife Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix), Alan Rickman (Snape), Timothy Spall (Wormtail) and the delightful Stephen Fry (UK HP audio book narrator). You can see the trailer at the official website here.

Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory) continues to generate news, with much ado over a recent appearance at Comic Con (photos here) to promote the second Twilight film, New Moon.

I’m so glad to see an adaptation like this for Alice. I can see it actually doing the original stories some justice!

Awesome! I didn’t know Sean Biggerstaff was still acting! I wonder if he would appear in Deathly hallows.

But the trailer for ALICE IN WONDERLAND looks amazing!! I can’t wait to see this movie!! Pretty much every adult actor from the HP films is in there. lol. But I’m not sure I like who they cast as Alice…she’s not really Alice-like. This movie is a must-see!

I would be so delighted if Sean Biggerstaff returns! It would wrap up the series properly I think, & it would be wonderful if characters like Madame Hooch returned as well :)

Although i really like Tim Burton and the style of this new Alice, i’m a bit confused by the fact that Disney is making the movie. I mean, they already have the cartoon version, why create a new one with an older Alice?

Hopefully this won’t affect Kingdom Hearts. And Steven Fry with Alan Rickman?! Woohoo!
