The Z Review is reporting that a source close to WB says Rowan Atkinson (of Mr. Bean fame…) has been cast as Voldemort and they’re looking at Richard Wilson for Frank Bryce. Reasons this is not to be considered anything other than rumor: Trelawney hasn’t even been cast in the third film yet; no one has been cast for the fourth yet; a director is still to be decided on for the fourth; the number of movies that will represent the fourth book is still undetermined. Casting of Voldemort and a minor guy like Frank Bryce? EXTREMELY premature.
