Just saw him in Indy 4. Can’t wait to see him as Slughorn! :)

He had a cameo in the new Indiana Jones movie and whenever he was onscreen I couldn’t stop imagining what he’ll be like as Slughorn! Can’t wait for HBP.

Happy birthday, Jim!

Happy Birthday, they couldn’t find someone better to take on Slughorn… seein as it’s his birthday, do you think there’s any chance WB will celebrate by givin us a picture…? (I’m clinging to anything now)

Both John Hurt and Jim Broadbent were awesome in their huge parts in the new “Indiana Jones” movie (not sure where the previous reader came up with “cameo” part?) Both of these actors are first rate in everything they do and will be amazing in the upcoming Harry Potter roles. I gotta say, could anyone have performed the role of “Ollivander” any better than John Hurt in the first movie! That was one scene that just could not have been done better by anyone, thanks to the acting and directing. And Broadbent as Slughorn may leave me feeling the same way if David Yates doesn’t screw it up.

Because you CANCANCAN!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Both he and Olivander (John Hurt) are in Indy 4…in case any of you wish to see them.

Avatar Image says:

Just got back from Indy 4. I couldn’t stop thinking about Jim as Slughorn!

Cheers!

Barb, honestly, he was barely in Indy 4 so to me his role was a cameo. It was nowhere near a huge part. He told Indy he was fired and he resigned and I remember him in the audience at the wedding. That’s about it. Hardly a huge role, but he was brilliant nonetheless.

Happy Birthday, Jim Broadbent!

I recently saw him in the film, So When Did You Last See Your Father?, with Colin Firth and Juliet Stevenson. He was just wonderful in the role of the dying father.

Can’t wait to see his Prof. Slughorn. :)

happy b-lated birthday! I cannot wait to see Horace Slughorn. We are all dying for pics of him and the rest of the cast. We just want some pics to think of it. But hope you had a wonderful day and cant wait to see you as Slughorn.

If anyone saw Jim as the village police chief in Hot Fuzz, his character early in the film instantly made me say that he was the perfect guy for Slughorn. And lo and behold he was eventually cast as such. I’d like to think I had something to do with that.

Happy Birthday. I can’t wait to see how you did in your part.

Avatar Image says:

WOAH he’s 59?? I didn’t realise he was that old. A happy belated birthday from me to Jim and I am really looking forward to seeing him in HBP as he was just about the only good thing in the new Indiana Jones movie. Happy birthday Jim!

And don’t forget his part in Hot Fuzz! Happy Birthday Jim!

I have complete faith in your acting ability and can’t wait to see the 6th movie! With you as a slug, it promises to be better than ever! (I would send you some pinapple, but I don’t know if you like it yet…) HAPPY BIRTHDAY PROFFESSOR SLUGHORN! MAY YOU BE PROTECTED FROM DEATH EATERS (the filthy, nasty devils) ALL YOUR DAYS!
