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 CAN’T WAIT!! Helena Bonham Carter’s head lol :p
And OMG, Johnny Depp looks awesome too. I saw a picture of his look a couple of months ago, but that’s nothing compared to seeing him in action. He’s awesome! I love him.

It would be cool if Sean Biggerstaff does return for DH … it’s just great that so many of the original cast are going to returning.
And, the Alice In Wonderland movie just keeps looking better with every new pic & trailer. I love how many HP actors are in there. Alan Rickman is going to be awesome as the Caterpillar. I am so excited for this movie :)

I can’t wait for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland! He is one of my favorite directors! And I love how he is have some of the same cast he used in Sweeney Todd, in this movie! You know, obviously meaning, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Johnny Depp, and Timothy Spall! They are 4 of my top favorite actors!

I’d really like to see Sean in Deathly Hallows!
Also, I love all Tim Burton movies (& Johnny Depp’s), so I can’t wait for Alice in Wonderland!

Helena Bonham-Carter, Alan Rickman and Johnny Depp in the same movie? Yes please! :-) Too bad this ‘puter doesn’t have speakers, gotta watch the Alice trailer later.
