Julian Sands -- Remus Lupin (Though, again, David Thewlis has been imprinted on my brain!)
Angela Lansbury -- Bathilda Bagshot



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.

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!:relax:

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

Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) as Sirius Black

Anthony Hopkins as Moody

Rowan Atkinson as Voldemort

Sean Bean as a DE

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

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

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

How about James McAvoy as young Lupin in SWM?

Hahaha! Only if they're planning to make a spoof version of Harry Potter. :rotfl:

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

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?

That's just bizarre!!

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.
