That would be Timothy Spall.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Ian Hart has popped up three times in the one week: A Cock and Bull Story (as a passively irate scriptwriter with jug ears and seven kids), Breakfast on Pluto (nearly stealing the end of the movie as a jug-eared, mustacheoed copper) and The Virgin Queen (with a beard and little cap resting on said jug ears).

I'm getting rather fond of him. He and David Thewlis have very similar qualities as actors.

I saw the Virgin Queen (the one made in England and aired on PBS on Masterpiece Theatre with Ann Marie Duff?), and my grandma gave it to me on dvd for christmas! Which character was he in Virgin Queen?

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I remember freaking out when I saw Timothy Spall in A Series of Unfortunate Events. It was just really unexpected for my friends and I and it was pretty hilarious. In fact, the same thing happened when I saw Gary Oldman in Batman Begins.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

The guy who playes Lucius (I forget his name) is the "bad guy" in The Patriot (with Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger). I couldn't place where I'd seen him for the longest time and then it dawned on me.
Also, Lockheart (Kenneth Branaugh) and Robbie Coltraine are in Henry V. Branaugh's also in Much Ado About Nothing playing Benedict opposite his real life ex-wife. I think he directed both, too.

One of the Queen's advisors with a fussy gingery beard.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Last year in English we watched Sense and Sensibility, and Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson were in it. And a couple years before that we watched Much Ado About Nothing with Kenneth Branagh.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I just caught the last part of the original Die Hard, and Alan Rickman plays the villian. Boy did he look different. He has a great line of dialogue, but I can't say it here. lol

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I'm fairly well acquainted with movies, so usually I'm not confused as to who is who.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I was watching the movie Timeline and I noticed a guy who looked very familiar...it wasn't until I watched the movie for the second time that I realized it was David Thewlis the actor who plays Professor Lupin.

I remember seeing Alan Rickman in Dogma and Galaxy Quest as well

I had to watch Mary Shelly's Frankenstein last year in english class and Kenneth Branagh played Doctor Frankenstein
