David Thewlis to play Lupin?
No, not a pirate…that’s Yarrr. Yet Another Rumor: The Daily Mirror is reporting that Dinotopia actor David Thewlis has been cast in the role of Professor Remus Lupin in PoA. I have to admit, I like this rumor a lot more than I did AICN’s mistake that Timothy Spall was going to play the kind DADA expert. Mr. Thewlis at least looks the part. Thewlis has appeared in movies such as “The Island of Dr. Moreau”, “The Big Lebowski”, and “Dragonheart”. He also voice the Earthworm in “James and the Giant Peach” – (Ed. Note: yes, I know….not a Brit movie in the bunch. I’m working on my knowledge through my Netflix acct.)
