Rita Returns? Rumor Alert on Miranda Richardson Back for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Rumor Alert: Credible word has reached TLC that actress Miranda Richardson is in negotiations to reprise her role as scandal monger and Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore author Rita Skeeter in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. TLC spoke directly to reps for Ms. Richardson today, and when asked if they could deny or confirm the report, was told several times "no comment." 

Readers will recall recently producer David Heyman told Empire magazine they are indeed still casting for the final films in the Harry Potter movies. As such, we must keep this new report about Ms. Richardson, who gave such a delightful performance as the nasty Rita in Goblet of Fire, firmly in the rumor category for now, until Warner Bros makes a formal announcement regarding the cast of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I really hope this turns out to be true! The final HP film needs to be like one big reunion! Can we get Sean Biggerstaff to make a cameo during the Battle at Hogwarts?

Very cool. This means they might be fleshing out the whole subplot of the Life & Lies of Albus Dumbledore. Interesting…

Rita doesn’t really appear in DH, only in an interview, but it would be a good way of getting in some of the bits about Dumbledore’s life if they dramatize it instead of having Harry (and Hermione) read it. Then again, if they add in one place, they’ll take away from another, won’t they (as usual).

Guess That Book

Nobody was looking forward to Care of Magical Creatures much in this weather, though as Ron said, the skrewts would probably warm them up nicely, either by chasing them, or blasting off so forcefully that Hagrid's cabin would catch fire.
