Something tells me that Kevin Costner should do something (granted he's not English).

Yes.  The only problem with Kevin Kline is that I've never seen him in an even semi-serious role, so I have a hard time imagining him doing a good job with the acting out of it.

Well, "Dave" was semi-serious.  ...  Semi.  *looks sheepish*

*jumps up and down* I found him! I found who I would cast as Lupin! Alan Cumming! (sp?) He played Nightcrawler in X2, and has been a lot of other things besides.

And yes, I'm a sucker for a Scottish accent. :D

Okay, no THAT much of a sucker for the accent. ;) (Maybe if he'd managed some decent Russian in Red October, I could have gotten over the fact that he's old enough to be my grandfather. But he didn't, so I don't have to bother. ;))

I like his voice, just not the way he looks.

Now Sean Biggerstaff, there's an accent! ;)

Too bad they didn't/couldn't cast Bryce Howard as Hermione. She's too old now, I guess, but dang is she talented!

No, sorry, don't have one.


Yet! :D

Actually, he took pictures of us and made us say our names, cause this camera records sound. he put it on his computer so he could remember our names. Go figure.

He does look a bit like Thewlis, but the way he holds himself, pride and all, is similar to Lupin.

Even if he's not British, i will forever stand by the fact that Clint Eastwood would make the best Mad Eye Moody ever. No possible contenders.

Ooh I like that idea! Clint Eastwood would be really good as Mad Eye. He could fake an English accent.
And I agree, Hugh Jackman would have been the PERFECT Sirius!!!
I really don't like the actor who plays Ron... Anyone but him. His facial expressions just don't look right.
And maybe Natalie Portman as Tonks...

I'm sorry, Cerebus, but ew.  I disagree.  In part because she looks too young.  Well, not really, but with the trio looking to old, she doesn't look old enough to be enough older than them.  Um... right.

I keep picturing Tonks looking like a short haired Kate Winslet.

Ew.  I keep picturing her looking a lot like Madam Hooch, but younger, and with... less disconcerting eyes.  ;)  You know, a more normal color.

Oh, not me. I pictured her as a lot younger than Madam Hooch. Kate Winslet wouldn't be so bad for Tonks, IMO. Neither would Cameron Diaz, or any other of the young actresses with reasonable acting skill.

And I always thought Sean Connery would make a great Moody, if only for the voice.

I just don't see her with such a round face.  Didn't the book say she had a kind of pointy chin or something?

I think so, but what does it matter? She's a Metamorphagus (sp?), so she can change anything at will.

Yeah, its hard to say how that'll work out, if she changes the shape of her face. They could do it with computers, but it would be hard to keep the new look sustained for a long time that way. I suppose she'll have a regular form that she keeps returning too. Or they might just cut her out entirely, which would disappoint me.

:o  Cut... her... out??  Unfortunately, I believe that's ENTIRELY possible.  ....  Gosh, I hope they don't!

*sigh*  They always cut out the best bits.

:laugh:  Dude, Shelly, I have to wait an hour so I can charm you for that again!  I NEEDED a laugh today.  Thank you.

I have very little hope for the future of these movies, but I think I should get around to seeing #3 because I like Emma Thompson, and I want to see her as Trelawney.  They'd better not cut the Christmas dinner scene in book 4!  But, of course, they will, otherwise they'll have to cut out the first task or something.

Evil filmmaking monsters....   :laugh:

Crazy thought here.  Malkovich as Mad-Eye Moody.

And I think that Johnny Depp would, indeed, have made an excellent Black.

As for Fleur...why not Kate Beckinsale?  Anybody ever see her in Underworld?  Mm-mm!  Just work with the hair, and there you go!

Kate is way too old for Fleur! At least, that's my impression from Van Helsing.

I don't know if he's been cut or not. I haven't heard many rumors about the movie. Anyone have a spy on the inside who can fill us in? :)
