2 new castees for the next Harry Potter film.

Brendan Gleeson (Menalaus in Troy) will be Mad-Eye Moody and Frances De La Tour (Miss Jones from Rising Damp) will be the headmistress of Beauxbatons.

(look towards the bottom of the linked page for the pretty much the same details)

ooo - those are interesting. Jo and I were actually discussing this the other day. Frances De La Tour is an amazing actress with a very distinctive voice and style (she was also in Love Actually, but got cut out and only appeared in the deleted scenes on the dvd). Brendan Gleeson seems to crop up as characters in many films, so would probably do well as Moody.

( before the 3rd film is even released people are asking whether the lead trio will be able to continue playing the parts. I really don't think it's a matter of age, they're 14 at the moment playing 13-14 with a film. The 5th film is due 2007 when they'll be 17 playing 15-16. I don't think that's entirely unreasonable. Of course whether they'd want to keep playing the parts is another matter although i'd think there'd have to pretty good reasons to stop playing them.

Frances de la Tour was good in Dance of Death when I saw that on the stage last year (shame the play itself wasn't so great). I haven't read The Goblet of Fire though, so I don't know about suitability for the role or anything :-)

Sounds good to me: let's hope that the film is up to the cast.
