Dung Gone It! More Rumblings on Deathly Hallows Casting for a Smelly, Sneaky Thief

Dung gone it, we have more rumors today regarding a possible casting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Word has it that the part of dodgy Order of the Phoenix member Mundungus Fletcher (who is,in the words of Snape, a 'smelly sneak thief') will be portrayed in the Deathly Hallows films possibly by character actor Andy Linden. A photo of the actor can be seen here, and here, with footage of Mr. Linden at the premiere of his recent film The Secret of Moonacre, here. Andy Linden also had a small role in the film "State of Play," which was directed by David Yates, who is of course helming both the Deathly Hallows films. As readers will recall, Mundungus Fletcher has a pivotal role in the events leading to the Seven Potter scene early on in the final Harry Potter novel.  Please note, as with the other casting rumor of late, we are awaiting official confirmation,and thus we continue to urge caution and keep this in the rumor category for now. More when we get it!

This is only a rumor so I’m trying to not get too excited but I am hopeful that so many rumors are flying around, about the minor characters being cast, would indicate that a lot more of the storylines, people & places will be included in DH.

I guess he looks good for the part, but I always pictured Mundungus to be much, much younger. * shrug *

Interesting. As with Bill, I didn’t really expect Mundungus to be in the movies at all. It makes me really curious to see what the script of DH is going to be like. If these rumors are true, it’s going to be significantly different from what I expected.

I’m always so amused when mundungus shows up, he’s such a ratty but great character. That guy looks great and i hope he does have some screen time in DH! :P

I have always had andy serkis in my head Mundungus. Still shocked that there considering to keep him in, well rumoured to be anyway.

John-robert, that’s how I feel as well. These actors look fantastic, but how are they going to explain who these guys are, or how Dung stole the locket when we’ve never seen them before? I guess we’ll find out eventually
