WB: McManus as Aberforth, “Very Minor Role”

Last week we revealed that Jim McManus would play Aberforth Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix; today WB said that Jim’s role is “very minor,” which should allay some of the crazy speculation over the meaning of McManus being cast as it relates to book/film seven. If the role is the same as it is in the book, he will be the barman at the Hog’s Head and will witness the first Dumbledore’s Army meeting, in place of Mundungus Fletcher, who, at the moment, is not in nor planned for inclusion in the film.
