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 also pictured Runcorn as a tall, muscular, black man. I have no worries though, I am sure O’Hara will do a fine job.

I was just mentioning to friends that the only two of the many UK actors I enjoy not involved with the HP films were Colin Firth and David O’Hara. Now I can check David off that very short list. Can’t wait to see him! Now if they could only cast Colin. :)

It is a pity that the same person could not remain to play Kreacher in the seventh film. Still, I am very optimistic about both of these choices and wish them the best of luck in portraying their respective characters.

Guess That Book

What if Moody wanted to know how he'd found out about the dragons? Would Moody go to Dumbledore and tell on Hagrid, or just turn Harry into a ferret? Well, it might be easier to get past a dragon if he were a ferret, Harry thought dully, he'd be smaller,
