Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

I searched for this, so hopefully it's not here yet. But if the entire cast for the Harry Potter movies were to quit tomorrow, and you were picked to select entirely new actors, British or not, who would you pick?

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

I'd get Skandar Keynes for Harry, a new girl for Hermione (who'd be comfortable with the frizzy hair) and probably a new guy for Ron...uhh, and a new guy for Draco too.

I realized it's hard to replace them.

Emma Roberts as Ginny. I don't know why, but I can see that.

For Harry...the guy who plays Jake on "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

I can't see anyone else playing Ron, Hermoine, Snape, Hagrid, Fred, George, or Draco. I really can't see anyone else playing Harry or Ginny. But if I had a vote, if they seriously dropped their status, the above.

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

I was hoping to get Keanu Reeves as Snape. That would be so funny.

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

I giggle everytime I think of Snape saying: "Whoa."

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

I know that no one can do a better job than Richard Harris for Albus Dumbledore, but I saw an actor today that would make for another great Dumbledore.

I was recently watching the movie Narnia. In this movie, James Cosmo plays Father Christmas. If he could keep that same atmosphere I believe he could finish out the Dumbledore character with some real class.


thoughts?

I don't know, i would pick the guy who plays Charlize Theron's dad in The Italian Job, i forgot his name but he would make the perfect Dumbledore.

My sister and I came up with someone who would be the perfect Sirius, but I forgot who it was! I'll post something when i remember who it was.

Edit: Okay, I remembered! His name is Michael Sheen, he played Lucian in Underworld (2003), and amazingly, he's British.

I was thinking the EXACT same thing. FREAKY. James Cosmo definitely had that air of Dumbledore/Gandalf going on for him. Only problem is I don't think he was British, was he? I'll have to go on IMDB.com and check out his profile...

Whoops, nevermind. He's Scottish. He'd be okay for the films.

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

Personally, ever since I heard that there were giong to be movies, I've pictured Alec Guiness as Dumbledore. Only one slight drawback: he's been dead since before Movie 1. The best living actor for the role would be either Sean Connery or Ian McKellan.

Whoever plays Darcy in the most recent Pride and Prejudice would be great as Sirius.

The doctor in Master and Commander would be a good Lupin.

For some weird, inexplicable reason, I'd love to see Keira Knightly as Tonks. My favorite actress playing one of my favorite characters. Can't do much better than that.

Ian Holm would be the ideal Flitwick.

I wouldn't get new cast members! No one could replace them. That girl from lemony snickets movie could play Hermione.

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

Funny, 62442al_Man...we're on the same page! I actually made this thread to ask if anyone else thought Keanu Reeves would make a great Snape (or even a younger Keanu Reeves as teen Snape)... But then again, I did a Keanu Reeves Google Image Search and there was this one picture with Keanu's hair being really long and seeing that one, I thought he'd be a perfect Teen Sirius. ^^ Thoughts?

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

I really love Gary Sinise (Lt. Dan from Forrest Gump), and I think he will be a great Sirius. His performance in Forrest Gump is simply amazing.

Jim Carrey for Voldemort Or for Lucios Malfoy. He can make a great Dobby, now if I think of it - He did well on 'Liar Liar' acting a guy who simply can't lies (with really funny scenes of fighting himself), And Dobby can't tell bad things on his family...

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

I'm liking the idea for Keanu Reeves for Snape - he did play the bad guy in Much Ado about Nothing very convincingly! But i'm not sure I would want to change Alan Rickman though!?

I really thought the guy who played Ollivander would have been a great substitute for Dumbledore, think that was John Hurt??????

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

Don't get me wrong, I love David Thewlis as Lupin, but, I was watching "Return of the King" the other day and noticed that the guy who plays Faramir (I think his name is David Wenham) would be a GREAT Lupin. Also, Gerard Butler. In any part would be fine with me!! You know, I think I posted in a thread similar to this before??

Re: Your picks for Harry Potter cast members

David did do a good job, but wasn't Ewan McGregor also considered to play Lupin? Or was that just a rumor? I have to admit Ewan's not how I pictured Lupin at all, but he's so cute. Or maybe he could've been Sirius. As good an actor as Gary Oldman is, Sirius is supposed to be hot.

I really had my heart set on Anna Friel playing Tonks. I've never seen her in anything, but she said Tonks was her ''dream part'' and she and David Thewlis are married in real life. Sounds to me like she'd have been perfect, but I don't know, I've never seen her work. I also kind of got the idea that Helena Bonham Carter would make a great Bellatrix. Oh, and I wanted Rachel Hurd-Wood to be Luna, just because I liked her in Peter Pan. Evanna looks more like Luna, though, and I know she'll do us proud.

I also would like them to work Freddie Highmore into it somewhere--the boy in Finding Neverland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I don't really know who he could play, but I love that kid; he's got to be one of the most likable kids in Hollywood. The only person I can think of that he could play in future would be young Tom Riddle in HBP, though that would be just too sad (and too Star Wars), for the boy who becomes Voldemort to be all adorable and innocent-looking. If they were just starting making the HP films now, I'd totally want him for Harry. I'm starting to sound like a bit of a pedaphile, though...I just think the kid's a good actor.

Oh, wait, one more! I still think Ian McKellen would be the perfect Dumbledore. Alas, LotR beat us to him and now it'd be typecasting. But his Gandalf was everything I think Dumbledore should be; just the right balance of amiable and powerful. Neither Harris nor Gambon got that balance quite right, I feel; Harris was too sweetly grandfatherly and Gambon too cold and impersonal.
