Hmm...that's a toughie! I think I'd do the following

Hermione Granger - I'd keep Emma Watson. I have the perfect picture of her.  ;)

Ron Weasley - My cousin Cody, may not be the perfect actor, but reminds me just of Ron from the books!

Harry Potter - I can't think of any actor who fits him...I'd probably just keep Dan Radcliffe. ;)

Hagrid - Rupert Boneham, who won America's choice for favorite Survivor.  ;D With my vote, that is.  :D

Albus Dumbledore - I've always thought of Donald Trump, the millionaire dude...I've never imagined Professor Dumbledore with a beard, because I always thought of Donald Trump.  ;)

Those are most of the main characters anyway...

Ew I hated Rupert. I so wanted him to lose. He was always so condescending towards the female contestants "little Jenna, young Jenna, single momma Jenna." Ew. I can't stand him. I'm a big ole Boston Rob girl.  ;D

I don't know a lot of British actors, but I know I always wanted Sir Alec Guinness to be Dumbledore. But he died even before Richard Harris, so that wouldn't have really worked out.

*grumbles* I like Rupert...and have you seen what he's been doing with the money? Spending it on this Kids Help program. Charity, in other words.

I would have loved Johnny Depp as Sirius.  I always pictured Sirius to be "pretty."

I would cast John Malkovitch as YKW.

I saw this on a casting page and thought it was PERFECT.  For Fudge: Rowan Atkinson (aka Mr. Bean.)  Ooooooh, he'd be SOOO GOOOD!

Have any of you seen Enchanted April?  I can't remember the character name, but my husband suggested the sleazy novel-writing husband guy for Ludo Bagman.

Johny Depp would be great as Sirius, at least in my opinion.  ;D

John Malkovitch? What roles has he played before? (Because I can't remember him....)

Rowan Atkinson...oh yeah, him...good idea Mad!

Enchanted April is really good...*starts racking brains* I can't remember that dude's name either...

*charms everyone*

I think Rickman in his "Die Hard" persona would make a good Karkaroff.

For Fleur Delacoeur, Keira Knightley.

For Mad Eye Moody, Jack Nicholson.  (I know he's not British, but hypothetically speaking...)

And I need to keep thinking for the perfect Lupin, because I've always been a little sweet on him.

I've always thought Fleur should be animated, because I picture Veela was shimmering hair that real actors can't have, and I guess I just like their animation parts. They did such a good job with Quidditch in the first movie!

I think the whole darn thing should be animated.  And a series instead of movies.  Or a series of movies.  Or SOMETHING.

No, Lupin needs to be a bit more haggard, but more nice to james instead of lilly.

how about Viggo Mortenson for Sirius? I like that!

J. Malcovich plays jeckyll/Hyde in Mary Reilly with Julia Roberts.

I sorta like Viggo M for Sirius.  He'd have the right look.  Of course, the guy they had (why can I not recall his name right now??) did a fantastic acting job, I thought.

I like the idea of Jack Nicholson for Mad Eye/Crouch Jr.

Lupin, no idea.  Hard to guess, really.  No one I can think of matches my image of him.

D'oh!  Right!  Don't know why I couldn't remember.  Yeah, he didn't look the part to me but he sure played it well.

Assuming that we go away from the all-British bias, which in some cases is justified and others not so much.

Harry Potter: Haley Joel Osmet. One of the best young actors EVER.

Hermione: Someone else. Me as a young girl, perhaps. I do not like Emma Watson's portrayal. Hermione was a no-it-all, not a snot. Big difference.

Ron: *shrug* Can't think of anyone.

Draco: The kid who's playing him. I think he's doing a great job, and is a good actor, as well.

Sirius: I second the Viggo nomination. (Or third or fourth it. Whatever...) :) Or Alan Rickman.

Karkaroff: Gary Oldman.

Dumbledore: Ian McKellan. Because I'm abusing my powers and making him be a wizard twice. So sue me. :P

Lupin: Ewan McGregor, except he's probably got too much of a baby face, and I'd hate to see him in a beard again. :) Anthony Andrews would do a good job, I think. (Though I haven't seen him in anything recently, and he might be a bit on the Way Too Old side. Oooo, a young Peter Davison! Yay! *ahem* Susan, does this come with a Time Turner as well? :D

Mad-Eye Moody: Willem Defoe. (Mr. Osbourne in the first Spidey movie, the EPA guy in Ghostbusters, and a whole lot of other roles.)

Oh, and Professor McGonagall: I dunno, but some one who actually looks younger than Dumbledore!

OKay, that's enough fun abusing my powers for now. :D

There is a funny article on The Spoof (http://www.thespoof.com/news/spoof.cfm?headline=s4i5179)suggesting Michael Moore to direct the film version of book 6.

I know Lupin isn't necessarily supposed to be hot, but how Hugh Jackman would be nice...we know he can play a werewolf, AND he turns me into a teenybopper all over again.   ;D

Sorry. :) He could play Sirius, too, I think.

Clive Owen, too. Yum.

And ooh...Dawn French has already made an appearance, so I think Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous) would be great as Rita Skeeter!!!  If you check out her picture on IMDB, she already has the look, too.

Does anyone remember Zelda Rubenstein from The Poltergeist?  She was the short squat psychic who saved the day.
I think she'd be the perfect Umbridge!

[Some posts have been removed that did not relate to the topic.]

Much as I detest Umbridge, dude, that would be a fun role to play! Imagine how EVIL you could be!

*ahem*

Can anyone find the name of this Poltergeist psychic? I'd love to look her up. :)

Okay, Hugh Jackman as Sirius, Colin Firth as Lupin!!  WOOHOOO!

(As nice-looking as Hugh Jackman is, I think he's a little to... um... gruff? square-jawed? mischievous-looking? for Lupin.  I see Lupin as very smooth, thin, and mild-mannered.  You know, as an adult.  I think Colin Firth could do it!

Oh, and I could also see Kevin Kline as Lupin, because Harry describes him as young with a lined face and gray hair.  I think Kevin Kline isn't too old to fit.  He's got the right facial shape for my idea of Lupin.
