Avatar Imagehp29 says: i can't wait its going to be such a good movie!!! (yay! first comment!)Avatar ImageKarrelien says: I'm curious how good he will play the role..

The casting news begins! He looks perfect for the part, too.Avatar ImageMatea says: hehe,cool. I loved the ministry chapter! I really hope they won't remove it.I mean,its important,because of the cupAvatar ImageAccioCloak says: Reg is an important part of that whole Ministry scene, so I'm delighted to hear he's in the movie. Can't believe DH is being filmed when I haven't seen HBP! Avatar ImageAttolia says: Very glad to hear he (the character) is in the movie. I can't wait!Avatar Imagedarkveela says: He is the one who will be Ron Polyjuiced, right?! He seems very good for the part, there is some Ron resemblance, IMOAvatar ImageGryffindorGal87 says: Awesome! I wonder how they're going to do the whole Polyjuice thing though? :)Avatar Imagejanspach says: Very exciting! Things are coming together.Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: yay,it's so exciting to start getting casting news for DH.he looks ok,imo.Avatar Imagewizardinventor says: It is always so exciting when you start to hear casting news for the new HP movie! Yay!Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: Can't wait for this movie. I will have graduated High School by the time the first part is released. They better cast Charity Berbach.Avatar ImageLargeBlondDeathEater says: Ugh--this is the last movie where they can get big British stars for a cameo and they cast some unknown actor?! They're going to be in Polyjuice Potion, imagine them (unknown actors) being onscreen for 10 minutes minimum and the audience being bewildered as to who they are. Avatar ImageLargeBlondDeathEater says: Ugh--this is the last movie where they can get big British stars for a cameo and they cast some unknown actor?! They're going to be in Polyjuice Potion, imagine them (unknown actors) being onscreen for 10 minutes minimum and the audience being bewildered as to who they are. Avatar Imagesp00kym00ny says: hmm...i always pictured him as a big red-neck lumberman (is that a word?) but hey, i guess with a lot of make up....Avatar Imageomgitslouise says: I'm so glad he's in the film, but he's definitely not how I thought he looked....Avatar ImageScullythefirst says: Guess what, they're not required to consult any of us on casting issues. Just be glad of some casting news for DH. I'd have thought we'd have a lot more by now. Avatar ImageAmonara says: I'm so happy he's in the movie! That part of the book is one of my favorites. Yay!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I certainly cannot wait to see his performance of this role! Best of wishes to him.Avatar ImageLemonFaerie says: That's interesting, I had my doubts that they would do the Ministry scene at all, not wanting the trio to be off camera for so long, but it gives me hope that they really are going to put everything in there!!!!Avatar Imagesquibcloakmaker says: There goes my hope for Collin Firth! Oh well! Can't have everything.Avatar Imagelnh92 says: thats awesome. I can't wait for that movieAvatar ImageDylanAqua says: Wow, it would seem that they are taking quite a risk in relying on other actors to maintain the mannerisms of the trio, instead of simply using makeup or CGI to change their appearance or by changing the script entirely by having them under the Invisibility Cloak, granted they would not all fit. Having said that, I am pleased that they are keeping to the book on this one, I just hope that these new actors do the roles justice...Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Oh, I'm so glad they cast him ! He doesn't look exactly like Iimagined it, but that doesn't matter, really, as long a he isn't too tall..Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: It will be interesting to see how they are going to have Ron look like him or will he be playing Ron during the Polyjuice epsoides? Either way it's good to know that the ministry scenes will be in the movie. I guess WB can't use the excuse of time constraints for eliminating important scenes this time. LolAvatar Imagebookmonster79 says: I guess we can see that they are going to keep all the Polyjuice moments in. Wow, that's going to get confusing as they get further along in the story, especially with how much Harry and Hermione change.Avatar ImageeiVega says: Yay for casting news! It's so exciting! It makes the last movies feel real all of the sudden. They're actually making them! And it's great to know that they are taking care of characters like these! The ministry scene is going to be interesting! :)Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I imagine when no other character is speaking directly to Harry, Ron and Hermione we'll see them as Dan, Rupert and Emma. Does that make sense? Like it'll be Emma sitting beside Umbridge but when she turns to talk to her we'll see Hopkirk. Get what I mean? Its the way I would do it and wow the casting news begins, its really happening, not how I imagined him thoughAvatar Imagekiwimci says: Just seen the Abigail's party pictures and I change my mind he'd look great as RegAvatar ImageCatherine says: Yeh! this makes it even harder to wait for the movie to come out! it also shows how much of DH they ARE putting in the movies!Avatar ImageCatherine says: So cool! Avatar ImageHopelaa93 says: I can't wait for the next three Harry Potter films. I saw a picture of the actor and he actually looks something like I imagined. Avatar Imagelilyjames says: Sweet this is really close to the way i imagined him and im so frekin happy they have him in the movie it makes me happy that its still in!:)Avatar Imagelilyjames says: Sweet this is really close to the way i imagined him and im so frekin happy they have him in the movie it makes me happy that its still in!:)Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Yes! I love hearing about casting news! So exciting!Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: I'm really happy that they have such a minor character in the movie! Once again, splitting the movie into two parts was such a good idea. It allows them to put in so much that they couldn't otherwise.Avatar ImageDragongamer187 says: YAY Im sooo excited to see that casting is beginning!! I cant wait to see more!Avatar ImageBrad Ausrotas says: Looks cool, I can't wait to see who is cast for Runcorn though!Avatar ImageIlzairspar says: He's younger than I pictured him in my mind, but I can see it. He reminds me a bit of Rupert, so perhaps they were trying for that when they cast him. You know, so we don't forget it's Ron under the polyjuice potion.Avatar Imagebookishgal says: Great to hear they will be including the character in the movie.Avatar ImageLunaGinervaBlack says: I'm quite pleased with his appearance!Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: LargeBlondDeathEater, we don't care if there's an unknown actor in the part. You say, "imagine them (unknown actors) being onscreen for 10 minutes minimum and the audience being bewildered as to who they are." We know who they are. They are the characters they are playing. That's all that matters.Avatar ImageCourtney Quirke says: he's wonderful. look at his eyes.Avatar Imagelunaluu says: yay! I am so glad they are not cutting this scene!! Avatar ImageArithmancer says: The actor looks fine to be. Cattermole is described in the book as being "small" and "ferrety-looking," but for some unfathomable reason I keep picturing him as the lizard with the ladder from Disney's Alice in Wonderland. Poor Reg Cattermole! All he wanted to do was go to work that day and support his wife! And yes, along with everyone else, I wonder how they're going to handle the extended polyjuice scenes.Avatar ImagePureblood-Slytherin says: i didn't picture him like that but i trust they chose him for a good reason.. can't wait to see how he does.. Avatar ImageSnoopMK says: Isn't that the guy who plays Dave, Nessa's boyfriend on Gavin and Stacey? (British sitcom shown in the US on BBC America)Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: I don't wanna click on the link to the picture because then I will get the actor stuck in my head every time I read DH, even if he is a minor character.Avatar ImageSophie Treklemmer says: So cool! The picture is not quite as I imagined him, but I'm sure with some makeup and hair-styling, not to mention costumes he'll be awesome ;) I'm just so happy they're keeping it in the movie!!Avatar Imageligress says: Good, it looks like the Ministry scene is coming together well!Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool! Casting news! Yay!Avatar Imagelaughing laurel says: cool! I hope he can play Ron's character well! :)Avatar Imageravenclawguy1972 says: hmmmm he looks a bit younger than i pictured him, but as others have said makeup and a wig can work wonders Avatar ImageKara000 says: OMG DH casting. AWESOMEAvatar Imagepromote_elfish_welfare says: Cool.. so this means they're going to do the whole polyjuice thing? I'd thought that would be really confusing for the audience.. but awesome! Because I want them to do it. Avatar Imageyzzi111 says: wait . . . who is this guy?Avatar Imagelindisay says: hello,is anyone know this web i want to buy a handbags from here, while i am not sureAvatar Imageilovefeltbeats says: I think he looks a bit too manly for the role (Anyone know what I mean?!) ~ZoeAvatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: GOOD! I'm always glad to hear of minor parts which won't be cut. I wonder if he'll be playing the part of Ron for most of the Ministry scene... Ron is supposed to look like him... Or will they get around that somehow so that the trio will play themselves as much as possible?Avatar ImageX-Lillie-Lovegood-X says: I always pictured him as a huge muscley kinda guy with a deep voice. Aah well Im sure he will do a good job. . . . . good luck to him!!! xxxxxxAvatar ImageErinM says: A little hair and make-up, some polyjuice potion..I guess I can see that. I had always pictured him bigger, too.Avatar Imageapxq12 says: I'm so glad they didn't cut this part out of the film! He's not really how I imagined to be when reading the book, but I can say the same for most of the other characters/actors as well! I'm sure he will hake an excellent addition.Avatar ImageNiphai says: Not excacly how I pictured him, but I guess it could be worse xDAvatar ImageNiphai says: Not excacly how I pictured him, but I guess it could be worse xDAvatar ImageGreat Uncle Algie says: Awsome that there gonna do that part for the movie... I hope they do it exactly the way it was done in the bookAvatar Imagerunaroundkid says: This is a good sign, I'm glad they're keeping the infiltration of the ministry in. I think it's really important for the development of Harry, Ron, and Hermione.Avatar ImageDolemite says: Nothing being cut out, great.Avatar ImageElwood_magic says: It's great that those ministry infiltration parts are being kept. That chapter was abolutely thrilling.Avatar ImageAraminta1987 says: I love that all that comes up next to the picture is Steffan Rhodri - Fluent Welsh Speaker. :PAvatar ImageChrissyPuff says: very cool... kind of the way I pictured him:)Avatar Imageginnywp says: i cant wait for the movie! good to know this scene is still inAvatar ImageChantyBabez says: Well done him! I'd love to be him :D xxxAvatar Imageemmalily says: Awesome! Things are coming together! :-)Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: REG!!!! OH HOW I LOVE HIM AND HIS FAMILY!!!! i wonder what this actor looks like when hes smiling, cuz in the picture he looks so serious but reg seems, erm, not the brightest bulb on the christmas tree, so you think he would be laughing or something else. but whatever im totally overanalysing stuff. cant wait to see the ministry break in on filmAvatar ImageArthur22 says: It is a good sign if they are casting him, this scene is a key one.Avatar Imageshellybasson says: Who's Reg again?? :)Avatar Imageshellybasson says: Never mind. Dumb question. When all else fails just READ! :))Avatar Imageiceymoon says: it means they're doing the ministry scene! thank GOD. so many people were putting up good arguments for why it should/might be cut out, i was starting to get really worried. ;-;Avatar Imagepenelope_clearwater973 says: Well the Ministry scene's in, right?
