Bill Nighy Talks a Possible Harry Potter Role

Actor Bill Nighy (Love Actually) has been promoting his new film "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," where he gave a new interview to the Washington Post and he spoke about wanting a possible role in a future Harry Potter film. The actor talked about his friend "Order of the Phoenix" director David Yates, and mention was made of the fact that he had appeared in two of Mr. Yates earlier films. Bill Nighy went on to express an interest in appearing in the Harry Potter series, especially now that David Yates is directing a second Potter film, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Quotage:

"The actor says that when his friend David Yates, who had cast Nighy in the TV movies "The Girl in the Cafe" and "The Young Visiters" and the British series "State of Play," was named director of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" (due out this summer), his heart leapt. "I joked with him that maybe now I wouldn't be the only actor in England who hadn't been in 'Harry Potter.' " And yet, he says, with a tone of mock heartbreak, "nobody called."

It may not be too late. "And now, apparently, he's doing the next one as well," Nighy says. "Somebody's got to talk to him."

Please note: we should caution the article continues on to speculate on a possible casting theory that has been popular among fans, but again this is only speculation by the reporter, not Mr.Nighy as the article reads:

"Mr. Yates, are you listening? If you've started working on "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," and you still haven't nailed down the casting of Fenrir Greyback, the werewolf, I've got just the man for the job. He doesn't need the work, but we could all use another one of his nutty experiences."

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is scheduled to begin filming later this summer with a release of November, 2008.
