Brendan Gleeson is perfect as Moody – just the right combination of grit, heroism and funniness.

Happy belated birthday! You did a wonderful job of portraying Mad Eye Moody, capturing his courage, and the dangerous side of him very well.

I thought this was one of the better casting decisions made by the filmmakers. Mr. Gleeson really nailed the character, both as inhabited by Barty Crouch, Jr. and as Mad-Eye himself! Brave, committed, grumpy, paranoid, a little scary but with a sly sense of humor. Well-done, sir, and many happy returns!

Happy birthday, Brendan, you are one of the best actors in HP. I enjoyed ever single moment and wished you got more space in the movies.

Cheers with Butterbeer.
