Actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) made several appearances in the Chicago area over the weekend to continue promoting "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2."

On July 22 and 24, Mr. Felton was at the Hollywood Blvd. Theater in Woodbridge and at the Hollywood Palms on July 23 to sign autographs and take photos with fans. Photos from the two events can be seen here, courtesy of Feltbeats.

An interview with the Draco Malfoy actor was also published in a local newspaper, in which he talks about filming Harry Potter and maybe one day reuniting with co-star Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) on another film:

When asked if he’d like the tables turned and act in a film with Daniel Radcliffe as the villain and himself as the good guy, his face lit up and he exuberantly replied, “Oh, yes!” He then began to elaborate.

“Daniel and I have commented to each other that we probably won’t get another chance to work in another movie together but if we do, he’d be the bad guy and I’d be the good one.”
Mr. Felton was also invited to throw the first pitch at the Cubs-Astros game at Wrigley Field on Friday evening. You can seen how well he did in this video.

I was there. 6.5 hours of waiting but it was worth it! (And it’s Woodridge, not Woodbridge, by the way.)

Are you kidding me? I’m in Chicago visiting family, and my uncle and I were supposed to go to the game Friday. We were supposed to leave the house early, but it was raining…so we decided not to go. Arg!!!

Tom is a good guy, and he probably had practice throwing overhand at cricket. He is a good sport, and I would love to see him play a hero.
