The family of UK soccer star Theo Walcott is reportedly set to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The TimesOnline reports tonight that Theo Walcott himself will be unable to record his scene in the movie due to his committment to his team, however his family will still be in the fifth Potter film. The brief article says:

“The footballer’s father Don, his mother, Lynn, and Ashley, 19, his older brother, have just completed costume fittings for their parts in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the fifth film from JK Rowling’s series of novels, due out in 2007. Walcott himself had also been due to appear in the movie but had to pull out because filming schedules clashed with his commitments for Arsenal and England Under-21s. ‘I can’t tell you what scene it’s going to be because that’s a secret, you’ll have to have to wait and see,’ said Don Walcott. “
