Avatar ImageMary11_hplvr4l says: lol all except johnny depp :'( but the only role I can think that would suit him is voldemort..& I like our voldemort very much haha I gotta check outt that interview when I get to a computer haha I'm on my phone..Avatar ImageMary11_hplvr4l says: how did my comment end up in front?? haha oh well..Avatar ImageRaveKatie says: Awwwww he's so cute!!! lol, and yeah all they need is Johnny Depp to star in HP and you've got pretty much the whole cast of Sweeney Todd right there. LMAO. But I'm curious to see what he'll look like as Caius, the volturi were the only good thing in the Twilight series. Honestly.Avatar ImageRin68nyr says: LOL Actually, with his hair, he seems to fit my imagination of what Grindelwald would have looked like when he was young! ErinAvatar ImageLadyCake says: My question is who will play Young Dumbledore?Avatar Imagegaryvc says: Is that Bonnie Wright standing behind Bower near the end of the video interview? It looks like her.Avatar Imagecherrybomb says: i love jamie! he's hawt :DAvatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I wonder what the scenes were in which he actually appeared! I am looking forward greatly to seeing how the film handles all of the backstory and whether it will incorporate any homoerotic allusions between the two characters that mainly comprise it. I hope he did a fantastic job depicting the character.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Fascinating...Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: Hes doing new moon?Avatar ImageJCBack says: Well, he certainly looks like someone you could fall for (as in Dumbledore could) but somehow I imagined him more... erm... wild if that makes any sense. He looks too much like a well-nurtured, good kid. We'll see how he'll doAvatar ImageFresh Prince says: AWWWWW THEY COULD HAVE GAVE TO SOMEBODY WHO ATLEAST READ THE BOOKS BEFORE BUT OH WELL HOPEFULLY HE'S GOODAvatar ImagePewterWolf says: I can't watch this (am at work! NOOO!!) Will have to wait till hometime then watch it... Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: Wow.. This young actor is great to be involve in two most popular movie series today. But Harry Potter series was indeed Most Popular and Best among other series.... :D Avatar Imagecghambright says: He looks like a 10-year old boy. I still cant see him as Grindlewald, but its awesome that he's already filmed some of his scenes! I wonder which one? But it's hilarious that pretty much the whole cast of Sweeney Todd is in the Potter films. lol. Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: mmm... ok.Avatar Imagestuckinanhpmoment says: hahaha I like the nickname he gives himself at the end (apparently if I write it here my comment won't be posted because it's considered profanity, so please read the article or watch the video if you want to know what I'm talking about, lol). I like this guy, he's cute too.Avatar Imagecghambright says: @stuckinanhpmoment: Do you mean Franchise....prostitute?Avatar Imageravensmith says: That was cute.Avatar Imagehermione97 says: I hope he's good as young Grindelwald. They would have chosen someone who at least have read one book or so, but we'll see soon if he's good or bad.Avatar ImageJaneth says: So now we have 2 Potter/Twilight actors, huh.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Fascinating...Avatar Imagecghambright says: @Ladycake: They announced that an actor named Toby Regbo will be playing young Dumbledore! Avatar Imageharrypottergirlll says: Wooooo!!!! Jamie!!!! Ah he is amazing. Like people have already said, he does seem almost perfect for Grindlewald- what he seemed like in the book. Ah we are so cool (David Yates) :D Yay he know everybody almost already - ST and HP are verry close indeed :)Avatar Imageharrypottergirlll says: HAHA The video is amazing, jamie so funny, he's messing with his hair and scratching the whole time.... ahaha, great man :)Avatar ImageFlonk says: He looks perfect for the part of Grindelwald, in my eyes. As for Johnny Depp, he's really the one still missing in the cast. But what part to give him? He can act different characters, but I don't know whom he could play in HP. Maybe Ludo Bagman (if they had kept him in) or Sirius, even young Dumbledore. Hmmm... or just some random Deatheater, as a joke, or a portrait - Sir Cadogan behaving like Captain Jack Sparrow :P Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: I think he looks like a woman but I hope he plays the part well.Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: It seems like perfect casting! :-DAvatar Imagedeadtree says: wow, he looks exactly like I imagined Grindelwald!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: hmmm i never realized that he played in sweeney todd too!Avatar Imagepotterrock says: haahah greatt interview,.....jamiee is great for grindelwaldAvatar Imagebadger666 says: Can't wait to see Grindelwald and Dumbledore. I wonder what scenes they will show.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: jamie is such a hottie :D
