Avatar Image says: Ahh! So excited about the pictures. I've been hoping for some good ones of ol' Sluggy.Avatar Image says: These look good. Jim broadbent is great. He isn't what i thought of as slughorn but he is a great actor so i am sure he will do great. Avatar Image says: awesome! he looks pretty mad tho lol !Avatar Image says: Nice photos! lol. But: Is my idea or Slughorn looks (in these photos) just like Mr Bean. (Rowan Atkinson)? I recall the same face expressions and (now that I give a thought on it) it seems like if they had the same personality.Avatar Image says: Mad for plaid! Weird how his one jacket cuff has a button hanging from it....Avatar Image says: am I the only one who hasn't seen the promo shots of harry and draco that's on there, too??Avatar Image says: Pretty fierce Slughorn photos. I also think the profile images of Harry/Malfoy are amazing! Intense, brooding, face-off....I love the tension there!Avatar Image says: You're not the only one who didn't see the photos of Harry and Draco. How did I miss them?!?! Oh, well. I really like them, though. The intensity of them are great. And I enjoyed the Slughorn photos as well. :)Avatar Image says: omg i actually CANT wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!Avatar Image says: I'm a little disappointed by the choice of Broadbent to play Slughorn. He doesn't look anything like JKR's description of Slughorn in the books i.e. with large belly etc. what does everyone else think?Avatar Image says: I completely agree Miss Twiddle - definitely not fat enough to play Slughorn - I can't see his belly preceding him into a room! Having said that Jim Broadbent is a splendid actor - I've never seen him give a bad performance so I'm sure he'll do the best he canAvatar Image says: Hey Sue! You are most welcome! But as I think I'm the only Thio around here (at least I hope so) and I'm pretty sure I didn't send you guys any picture, I can only assume you got my nick up there by mistake. But thanks anyway! =9Avatar Image says: I never seen those Harry Draco face off pictures either!! How did I miss those?!Avatar Image says: I definitely like the site more for the photos of Harry/Draco than the ones of Slughorn. I wouldn't have pictured Slughorn as the type to have cuff buttons hanging off by a thread, would you? I thought he was rather posh and liked everything just so.Avatar ImageSylvieTheHufflepuff says: Slughorn is probably one of my least favourite characters. I don't know why, but he just is. Still, loving anything from HBP that comes out.Avatar ImageKaylie Marie says: Sluggie, I never liked him much. But he was cast well, none the less. The casting for all of the Harry Potter films was done so well. I still can't believe Alan Rickman every time I see him, he is exactly the Snape I envisioned!Avatar Imagemissingmarauder22 says: The thing that will really make him Slughorn for me is seeing him pretend to be an overstuffed armchair. That scene MADE HBP for me. :)Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Oh, I'm so excited about the pictures! Can't wait to see the movie! And I hope Jim Broadbent'll be a good Slughorn...Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: I picture Slughorn to be smaller than Harry or as tall as he, and fatter... I wonder if they included the scene were Slughorn turned himself into a couch. I think he's too tall to transform into a couch! LOL!Avatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: Wow!!!! Sluggy looks cool and I think Jim Broadbent fits him just right.Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: I think Slughorn should be a little more dapper. This one looks a big too bedraggled, although I'm sure this actor will do a fine job. Avatar ImageBrosia23 says: He is amazing as Slughorn.
