The characters of Fred and George Weasley are apparently not included in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince video game. In a new interview, actors James and Oliver Phelps say they were not asked to record their voices as the characters they portray in the Harry Potter films are not included in the new game from EA. Quotage:

James: Our characters aren't in the game really as much because they're not at school and that's primarily where all the game is based. So unfortunately we weren't asked this one. But as we said earlier, it was cool that EA still said come and see how it's coming along and what you think. And they showed us how even the characters have got individual hair, the detail is amazing in it.
Oliver: And in the house it showed like different levels in the water, and how, progressing throughout the day and night, how the light changes on the water. Details like this - one or two guys, that's their job to make sure that that's perfect. You take that for granted when you're playing the game, but when you go around seeing all the individual jobs you really appreciate it.

Thanks Emma!

Guess That Book

"The Chasers throw the Quaffle and put it through the hoops to score," Harry recited. "So -- that's sort of like basketball on broomsticks with six hoops, isn't it?"[br] "What's basketball?" said Wood curiously.[br]"Never mind," said Harry quickly.
