The BBC is reporting that Harry Potter actors Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Jim Broadbent (Professor Slughorn) and David Tennant (Barty Crouch, Jr.) have joined the voice cast of "Postman Pat: The Movie - You Know You're the One."

"Postman Pat: The Movie" will be based on the popular British cartoon which recently celebrated 30 years. The movie will see Postman Pat "lured away from his village by the chance to find fame on a national talent show."

In a statement about the casting, Rupert Grint said:

"Postman Pat is one of those British symbols, I suppose - you are totally familiar with him and his cat Jess, even if you have never watched the series.
"How exciting to be part of the Postman Pat heritage."
The film is expected to have a 3D release in early 2013.

Postman Pat entering a talent show…. Jesus it’s changed a bit since when I watched it as a child! He didn’t have a bloomin’ helicopter when I watched it either XD

I wonder which parts they’ll all be playing! I want to know who’s playing Jess =D

I’ve never heard of it but I’m glad that Rupert is excited about it and it seems like something that I would want to consider looking at. I’m glad to see Rupert is getting offers.

i think i saw it once, when i was a lot younger…. and it was on one of the local channels (and it was pretty rare since it was broadcasting in america.) since ruperts making an (voice) apperance in it, i might just “suggest” my little brothers and sisters watch it now. so i can too. just for observation, of course. XD

I’m glad they clarified with the BRITISH icon because I was like, “Postman Pat…?!?” But, that’s how it goes in the States, I suppose.

Guess That Book

"The Patronus is a kind of positive force, a projection of the very things that the dementor feeds upon -- hope, happiness, the desire to survive -- but it cannot feel despair, as real humans can, so the dementors can't hurt it."
