Sadly Bob Hoskins has retired from acting due to ill-health:-

He was one of the actors considered for Slughorn originally though.

If they hadn't already used him for Vernon, Richard Griffiths would've been the perfect casting.

I keep trying to think of who Tim Curry could have played.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I'm sorry to read that about Bob Hoskins.

Tim Curry? I would loved to have seen him in HP but can't think of a role for him. No, he wouldn't have been a good Snape in case someone's going to suggest that!

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Remembering him as the Lord of Darkness in "Legend", he wouldn't necessarily have to play a human character!

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Rowan Atkinson as Voldemort has to be one of the oddest suggestions I've seen! What made you think of him?

Re: Re-cast the movies!

He was one of the actors considered for him before they settled on Ralph Fiennes.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Continuing from above, I have always
agreed with Patricia Routledge as Umbridge.

How about James McAvoy as young Lupin in SWM?

Where's the scare factor? I just start imagining as Mr Bean! Too funny!

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Well, Fiennes' Voldemort isn't all that intimidating either...

I can see what you mean but he's still more intimidating than Mr Bean! Maybe Tim Curry could be Voldemort?

Re: Re-cast the movies!

We could have a tough time finding a new
actor for Hagrid. Robbie Coltrane was
chosen by Rowling herself.

Also, having seen her in the Bond films, I could
see Judi Dench as McGonagal.

I like your young Lupin suggestion, though I think he might be too old (and somewhat more better-looking than the young Lupin in my head- not that I think Lupin is ugly, just waaaay average)

Hardly surprising, given that Hagrid seems to be based on Coltrane in Blackadder's Christmas Carol.
