This is gonna sound really weird, but I think Richard would've made a great James Potter (even if it's only a minor role) because I think he looks so much like an older Daniel Radcliffe.

What about Hermione Norris? She was also in Spooks.

Armitage with a Snape-cut and brown contacts. Mmmmmmm. Yeah.

If we're going the LOTR route, how about Viggo Mortensen as Sirius? He's obviously to old for the role, but so was Gary Oldman (I looked it up and they're pretty much the same age). Viggo would have been perfect if he was younger...

Love the idea of Armitage as Snape, but how about Michael Fassbender as Snape? I can see it.

Lena Headey as Narcissa Malfoy, I mean heck just see her as Queen Cersei and she's already got the look down pat.

Mark Strong definitely should have been in the series. Maybe not as Yaxley but he definitely would have made a great death eater.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

First, I'd bring James and Lily Potter down to their actual age. I'm going to go with Landon Liboiron for James and Rachel Hurd-Wood for Lily. I think, with some tweaking in make-up, they can easily play both teenage and adult Lily and James.

Also, I like to imagine child Lily as the little girl from The Time Traveler's Wife. Brooklyn Proulx is the actress's name.

For Sirius, I think Ian Somerhalder looks very much the role. He could easily play both pre-Azkaban and post-Azkaban Sirius. Not sure about the acting, though.

I don't like recasting Dan because he's sort of become Harry Potter but, if I could, I'd inject something to make him grow taller.

John Rhys-Davies as Hagrid.

Christopher Ecclestone as Voldemorte.

I cannot think of any other person to take the place of Dame Maggie Smith.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

The first actress that springs to mind that has the gravitas to play McGonagall is another Dame, Judi Dench.

John Rhys-Davis as Hagrid, I like that one. Bit of a change in stature after playing Gimli

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I'll be on my own on this one - Martin Shaw to play Dumbledore - he has very twinkly eyes......

Wow, absolutely!

I'm happy with most of the casting in reality but just for fun...

Tom Hiddleston as Remus Lupin (If the Marauders ages were to be similar to those in the books ie a bit younger than the films made it out to be)

Michael Fassbender as Voldemort

And I can't think of anybody in particular, but somebody, anybody else to play young Tom Riddle in HBP.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I got a curve-ball for ya. Albus Dumbledore ........ Morgan Freeman.

It was the suggestion about Christopher Plummer that got me wondering, I checked out some more recent pics of him and in one he looked just like a white Morgan Freeman.

Christopher Plummer

Morgan Freeman

Re: Re-cast the movies!

O.K Guys. Here are some more suggestions for you:

Meryl Streep or Glenn Close as Umbridge
Tilda Swinton as Madame Maxime
Liam Neeson, Clive Owen, or Pierce Brosnan as Lupin
Angelina Jolie as Bellatrix Lestrange
Judi Dench as McGonagall
Keith Richards as Mad Eye Moody
Christoph Waltz as Voldemort

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I always thought Ian McKellen would have been a better choice for Dumbledore... also heard that Gabriel Thomson was considered for Harry and think he probably would have been more suited (much as I love DR )

I could see Brain Cox as Mad Eye Moody. I don't mean the physicist, but Brain Cox the actor.

You might be on to something there. Which is kinda scary, given that I remember watching him in The Professionals (showing my age a bit there!):

I'm with Martin Shaw for Dumbledore, he'd be great.
It's easier with naming the adults but hard looking for another "Harry".

I think Alyson Hannigan for Ginny, almost anyone for Ron (sorry Grint lovers, but I'm just not a fan), Alex Pettyfer for Cedric, and Landon Liboiron for Harry
