Ohohohohoh YES! Loved him in Troy & he would have made a brilliant Dumbledore He's really tall, has the twinkly blue eyes, and a great voice, too. Also just remembered that this is who Richard Harris' family suggested for the role after he passed away...

What about Orlando Bloom?? I saw this pic of him as a little boy, and he reminded me of Dan a little bit



I think he would also be good as Sirius (he has the same good looks as Ben Barnes!)



Idea for a non-british Voldemort: Willem Dafoe

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I was reviewing "The Walking Dead" the other day and realized that the kid who plays Carl (Chandler Riggs) would make a very good Harry: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3385128/

Re: Re-cast the movies!

On looks alone Dylan Moran would be a great James.

And from left-field Lenny Henry as Dumbledore.

I look forward to the day your remember because, like you, nobody ever looks like James to me!

Nah, can't see it. I just looked at some of his pictures and he seems too old, first of all, and...puffy? I dunno, his face has this constant "I-just-got-out-of-bed" look to me.

Another candidate for Sirius: Matt Bomer (http://imdb.com/name/nm0093589/)

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Viggo Mortensen as Sirius Black. Oh god. That'd be perfect.
And Lindsay Lohan as Ginny Weasley. She'd be a very cute first years, and then developing in the beautiful woman Ginny becomes.
Cedric Diggory would be Penn Badgley. Damn, looks like I'm picking all American actors!

I agree. I think Viggo in his Aragorn make-up would be an awesome Sirius. Perhaps a little paler and slightly less wavy hair, but on the whole, an excellent choice.

Meh, can't really see this one. Maybe it's just her bad rep influencing me, though.

Her bad reputation now is indeed a huge off, but she used to be so cute in Parent Trap where she played that twin. And in Mean Girls! *sigh* She'd be a perfect Ginny in my eyes, the old Lindsay though!

And oh, Emily Blunt as Tonks.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

When I was reading PoA for the first time way back when. Sirius Black was Johnny Depp to me. Johnny Depp just looks like Sirius without even trying.

Johnny Depp would be awesome! Personally, I thought pre-Azkaban Sirius would look exactly like Johnny Depp. But from what I remember, the book described him as having lost his good-looks so in my imagination, post-Azkaban Sirius would be a lot less attractive. He would be really skinny with long, matted hair, sunken eyes, and really skeleton-like. But even as post-Azkaban Sirius, I think Johnny Depp would be great for the role because he is a great actor and if you've seen him in any Tim Burton movies, you know he can really change his appearance!

Re: Re-cast the movies!

My new favorite Ginny: Georgie Henley!

Although Bonnie fits the physical description much better, I think Georgie acts much more like canon-Ginny. She's really funny, lively, and bold, and I think she would fit right in w/the rest of the Weasley bunch (would have been great to see her opposite the twins & Rupert, especially! All of them very animated.)

Also from Narnia, I think Skandar Keynes could play a young James Potter in SWM (the hair ):



And another idea for Lily: Alexis Bledel??

I agree about Georgie Henley - she would make an excellent Ginny.

Ooh, Skander Kaynes! Good thought. He could work for young Sirius, too.

I'm surprised no one suggested Rachel Hurd-Wood for Ginny.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Although Depp looks like Sirius, I don't think the personality of the character is the best fit. I'd actually like to see his interpretation of Alastar Moody, even though the make-up team would have their work cut out for them making him look the part.

I think Johnny would be excellent as an eccentric character like Moody. The makeup shouldn't be a problem; wasn't Gleeson's only makeup the strapped on magic eye?

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I believe so, yes, but Depp eternally looks quite young and Moody was described as being a very weathered-looking fellow in the books. Gleeson looked much more appropriate for the roll on his own.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I think I'd like to see Daniel Day-Lewis as Mad-eye.

True about his looks, but makeup technique is quite advanced. Wasn't there a Brad Pitt (?) movie where he was a very old man?
