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!

I’m really really liking all of this casting! He would look just like the Dung in my head if he had a grungy brown mane of hair.

I’m loving all of these announcements. The more parts we hear about, the less that is getting cut out of the movie. I can’t wait!

His eyes are pretty much how I pictured them in the book, but the rest of his face isn’t. That doesn’t matter though, because WB can’t read my mind as some people expect them to be able to.
I hope this is true but don’t expect all these rumors to be true cause I can’t believe they’re casting all these characters.

Not the kind of dude I pictured for Dung at all. I expected a much younger, hairier, thinner dung. Like an older, shaggier, dirtier Stan Shunkpike. I dunno, this just wasn’t how I pictured him.

I never imagined Dung to be that old, but he does look like he could play a dodgy thief.

I suppose he could work for the part.
