As first heard on PotterCast and posted here both in May and again last month, actor Bill Nighy has been cast in the part of Rufus Scrimgeour for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Thanks to Newsround for this article containing new quotes from the actor who said “”I am in the next Harry Potter,” he told reporters.”I will be Rufus Scrimgeour, who is the Minister of Magic and he is a very very important man.” He then added: “I am no longer the only English actor not to be in Harry Potter and I am very pleased.” It is believed he will be filming his part as the Minister of Magic within the next few weeks, once production begins again after taking this week off for the various international releases of Half-Blood Prince.
