Two bits of casting news today for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. First Hollywood Reporter has an article online stating longtime Scottish character actor David O'Hara (Braveheart, Hotel Rwanda, Tristan & Isolde) will be taking on the part of Albert Runcorn. As the paper reminds us Albert Runcorn is the "Ministry of Magic employee who gets impersonated by Potter to get into the Ministry."

Finally a minor bit of news courtesy MN who reports the part of Kreacher will be now be voiced by actor Simon Mcburney, apparently replacing Tim Bateson who voiced the character in OotP.

Production continues in London, England for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, with Part One due in theaters Thanksgiving Weekend, November 2010.

I love both of these actors!!! I just saw David in THE DEPARTED and I love the tudors!! I could’ve sworn Albert Runcorn is a big, black man in the book, but I still think he will do a great job. I guess that means they WILL be using the Polyjuice instead of having the trio do that stuff. And Simon is a great actor…he’s kind of soft spoken, but I guess that will work for Kreacher.

OOO Excellent! He’ll make a great Runcorn. And I feel like Deathly Hallows will be the one movie I CAN wait for. I don’t want it to be over ]: But of course, keep the news on it coming!

Perfect choice! Anyone who can do Bill Sykes (even if it was in the weird Dreyfuss/Wood version) can do Runcorn no problem.
