Rumblings on Possible Casting for Bill Weasley for Deathly Hallows and More
March 07, 2009, 12:34 PM
We have some interesting rumblings today regarding possible castings for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Rumors have reached our ears that Domhnall Gleeson, the son of actor Brendan Gleeson (Mad-Eye Moody) will be portraying Bill Weasley in the final Harry Potter films. You can see a photo of Domhnall here. Domhnall Gleeson is an upcoming actor, known in the theater world having received a Tony nomination in 2006 for his work in The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Also word is that the role of Mundungus Fletcher has also been cast, but there is no actor's name available as of yet.
Please note: As fans will recall, we had heard from actress Clemence Poesy last year that her character of Fleur was not to be in Half-Blood Prince, but remained uncertain if she was to be back for Deathly Hallows. We do not know if the rumor of a possible casting of Bill Weasely indicates the wedding scene may be in or simply just Shell cottage, or what all of this may mean, thus, we do caution to please treat this very much as a rumor for now. As always, we are working to find out more on this, and will update with more when we can, stay tuned!
Looks good, to me…but as Sue has said, very much in the rumor category! No speculations, for me! I like to be surprised!
he doesnt look like a Bill that much. thats not wat i expected him to look like.
I hope so, I want tosee the wedding!
Does anyone know where these rumors are coming from?
If you look at the second picture of him he really does look like the twins. Eerie. Gives me hope that both he and Clemence will be in DH.
Yeah, casting news. I hope it turns out to be true.
Oh wow, he looks like a Weasley! I hope this isn’t just a rumor. :)
I hope that they have Bill in the movie!
I can see him playing Bill. I just really hope we have Bill in DH at all! And Charlie!!
i agree its sad that phlegm, oh, i mean fleur, wasn’t back for HBP, but i really hope they include her and bill in DH. I hope they do the wedding and shell cottage, and Domhnall looks like a good bill. i think he would do a good job, fingers crossed hes cast :D
He looks almost nothing like what I imagined
need longer hair. But still good cast pick
he reminds me of the way i imagined bill! Gah i hope they cast him
i imagined Bill a bit more rugged while reading the books, but i like this guy – he looks like a Weasley! I really want to see the wedding scene in the movie too!
oh GOD I hope this is true!! I really wanted to see the wedding and shell cottage. But why oh WHY didn’t they bring Bill in earlier?
I hope he does Bill justice in the movies
