1st! Okay, this is weird- Last night I saw Alan in Galaxy Quest (STRANGEST movie ever!) so right now I look at the close ups of his face and think ’that’s the weird purple actor alien? He looks so unlike him now!’

Ah so epic! He is soooo great at doing different roles and thats just awesome! I will ‘AlWAYS’ support all the HP actors no matter what they do. I’m so happy for Alan and I hope he’s having a great time!

@Elodie, I still think he’s hot, but it definitely wouldn’t hurt him to do some crunches.

@horcruxhunter7 – Galaxy Quest is one of the best movies. I hope you were able to see the scenes that were cut. They are some of Rickman’s funniest and it was too bad they weren’t left in.

I’ve no idea what this new movie is about, but I’ll plan to see it just because Alan Rickman is in it. Red curly hair – wow. ;-)

@HH7: Galaxy Quest is a great movie, one of my favorite. I still remembing seeing it in theaters Easter weekend. :)
Alan looks so different, nothing Snape-ish about him at all. Course once he speeks he’ll have his wonderful voice.

Galaxy Quest is one of my all-time favourites, too. Elodie, Weeny, I don’t know anything about the character he’s meant to be playing in this one but imagine he’s not meant to be hot!

I also love Galaxy Quest, it’s a brilliant film and Alan is just great in it. Now I still think Alan is hot, but he’s playing a part here, he is an actor after all, and the characters he plays are not necessarily going to appear attractive!

OK was not expecting to see him in that wig, totally just giggled and thought “Snape is a Weasley!” But great photos! Hope the film will be a success :)

I watched some of the filming last week and he is wearing a fake stomach. His character is suppose to have a big belly.

Fat suit + wig + baggy clothes = Hilly Kristal. Alan is a chameleon. It will be interesting to see Rupert Grint’s look in this film as well.

@ARff, are you positive that he was wearing a fake stomach? When I saw him live on Broadway in ‘Seminar’ in February he also had a big paunch that he appeared to be trying to disguise by always having his shirttails hanging out. I also noticed in the last two HP movies that his Snape robe, which I read somewhere was the same garment throughout all the movies, looked tight on him around the middle. I’m inclined to think that he has just gotten stout with age.

Then again, I suppose it’s possible that he has been choosing roles that require him to look unattractive as a way of trying to dissuade middle-aged lady stalkers. But in the case of ‘Seminar,’ that doesn’t make much sense, as the character was supposed to be an older, no-longer-successful writer who is consistently successful when he hits on his much-younger female writing students.

I think maybe he knew he was going to play this part and was gaining the weight before filming started (?).

Fake tummy or not, (and it does look as if it could be fake) who cares if he’s possibly got a little stouter with age, most people do unless they get paranoid about how they look, start visiting the gym several times a week, going on fad diets and having plastic surgery, I can’t imagine him having that kind of vanity.
