Remembering Brad Dourif as Grima in LOTR I reckon he could do a good Filch.

I always assumed she wanted to restrict it to an all British cast with British locations and a British crew so all the money that went to making the movies would stay in Britain and support the British economy. I can very much imagine an outraged country if an all British cast was flown to Hollywood for filming. The movies were bolstered by being able to visit real locations with real British architecture and not something that was created on a sound stage.

Anyway, back to the point.

LOVE that suggestion!!

As for a request for a casting of Peeves, this is absolutely a place where I could imagine an irritating as hell actor like Gilbert Godfrey as being perfect but I don't know if I could stand Gibert Godfrey in the HP movies - I can hardly stand him during those 30 second long Aflac commercials. Granted Peeves would only be in the movies for about two minutes...

I just watched Kings Speech again last night - what about Geoffrey Rush as Mad Eye Moody?? I think he'd have a lot of fun in that role!

(P.S. Happy 4th of July!!!)

Re: Re-cast the movies!

That's rarely a consideration.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I have Game of Thrones on my mind, and I thought Nikolaj Coster-Waldau would be a good Lockhart...Hmm or Lucius Malfoy.

And then Jack Glesson as Draco? He's to old to play him from the beginning, but he'd be a good Draco regardless.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Hmmm....Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Lucius Malfoy, Lena Headey as Narcissa Malfoy and Jack Gleeson as Draco...

Wow, GoT gave us the perfect Malfoy family casting!

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is too beautiful for Lucius, personally. I never pictured Lucius as a hunky man-god. I imagined him to be a thin, chinless Ministry brown-noser who has to rely on his powers of persuasion and ingratiate himself with the right people through bribery and negotiations because he didn't have devilish good looks to fall back on.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is hunky, though.

Lena would be a great Narcissa! When I first read your post I was going to disagree with you, but thinking back on her performance on GoT....It fits!

I wasn't think practically when I said Nikolaj for Lucius ( I was pretty much thinking, what other blond guys are in HP), but I can still see it. I guess it's more on how he speaks that sold me to the idea. Nikolaj can voice Lucius in an animated movie!

Paul McGann as Lucius Malfoy. I can see him going from arrogant to snivelling.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Mattew MacFayden as Remus Lupin and Harry Lloyd as Tom Riddle.

And a risky one: I love Gary Oldman's work in HP, but I think David Tennant would be an excellent Sirius.

You know what, I can totally see that.

But not with his native Scottish accent. I adore it, but Sirius is not written as Scottish.

That is a really, really good choice actually. One of those: I wish I had thought of that ideas.

I agree with your first two picks, especially Matthew MacFayden, could totally see it!

However Tennant? A risky pick indeed...he doesn't seem to have enough of that cool guy/bad boy thing to pull off Sirius Black.

I get Hugo Weaving and Jason Isaacs mixed up all the time; they look really similar to me. They're like the older version of Shia LeBouf and James McAvoy - they're like the exact same person

I have a hard time seeing Matthew MacFayden as Lupin, personally. I'm forever tainted by his tepid Darcy and have a hard time separating him from Tom Quinn in Spooks/MI-5. (I haven't watched that show since its about 8th season and I just looked Matthew up on IMDB and saw he's in an episode in season 10!!! EEP!! I want Zoe to come back, though. I miss her.)

I agree, he's more of an adult Lupin for me, personally. The way Sirius is described in the books I always got the impression he was built more like a jock and was more "typically" good-looking and for me David Tennant is good-looking in a much quirkier way.

Okay, what about Rowan Atkinson as Peeves? Or Filch? Or ( ) Snape??

Or James

He doesn't seem "scary" enough to me to be Peeves or Filch. I can't see him as Snape.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Well I've seen some ideas and I find them amazing:

Robert Downey Junior as Sirius Black would be stunning but he should get the screen time he deserves, if not there would be no sense in casting him, he always steals the show and giving him the sreentime sirius had in the films would be stupid.
Obviously I go for Ian McKellen as Dumbldore, the guy is perfect!
Michael Fassbender as Voldmort actually made my mind explode! That choice would be some of the best casting ever made in history.
David Wenham as Remus Lupin really was a great idea!
A for the old cast I'd say that warwick Davis and Alan Rickman should absolutely remain they were unforgettable and I must say that the Weasleys were perfect in every sense, unfortunately the kids have grouwn up but there choice was stunning.

Now as for my ideas I have some:

Firstly the most hilarious is Tom Cruise as Ludo Bangman, I'd really have a laugh with that!

Colin Firth as Hagrid

Samuel Jackson as Kingsley

Hugo Weaving as Snape

Ewan McGregor as Lockhart

Not regarind casting: I'd have Christopher Nolan as director
