You mean Benjamin Button? Yeah, they did a good job making Brad Pitt old there. He looked exactly like Robert Redford!

Thanks, that's the movie I was thinking of.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I've been watching a Miss Marple which had Peter Davison in it and I thought what a good Lupin he'd make. He comes over very gentle and kind (despite being the murderer in that particular programme!)

She's not British, but god Kate Micucci is literally EXACTLY, carbon-copy perfect for Tonks imo.

Wow she really is! I wonder how well she would have played Tonks if cast?

Although I like Peter Davison well enough, I'm not sure he'd be good in that role. I have to say that of the "modern" era of Doctor Who, I was a bit disappointed in his portrayal there. I don't think that's a good genre for him. He seems well suited for a different sort of character -- he was quite good in The Last Detective series, for example.

Actually, I'd like to see Depp take a shot at being Snape....assuming that having Alan Rickman again would be out of the question.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

What about the original choice, Tim Roth, for Snape?

Actually I like Roth, I think he's a fine actor, but he's just not Snape. It would be interesting to see his interpretation; he did say he'd have been a different Snape. I wonder about his costume since the buttoned up Snape was AR's idea.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I agree I can't quite see Tim Roth as Snape but I could see him playing Voldemort.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

He's got too much nose to be Voldemort, lol

(and I've got nothing against noses, mind you...)

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Not strictly British but I watched Donald Sutherland in "The Eagle" last night and he would have made a wonderful Dumbledore.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

I would love to see Adrian Brody as snape...

I looove Alan Rickman, so no complaints.

Johnny Depp is the obvious choice for Sirius..


I think they did a brilliant job casting...

That's no problem. The CGI pretty much removed Ralph Fiennes's nose.

True, and I think Tim Roth does evil brilliantly!

I think she would make a brilliant Narcissa Malfoy.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Ok, lemme see.

Dumbledore: either Michael Caine or Charles Dance. Wait, I actually think Charles Dance could make a good DE, maybe Yaxley?

Lupin: The Fassbender for sure.

Snape: I really could see Daniel-Day Lewis. He's a bit too handsome for Snape though. But something about him reminds me of Snape. I think it might be his lankness and he's really quite angular.

McGonagall: I cannot even contemplate it. Maggie Smith is near perfection for the role!

Umbridge: Meryl Streep. Seriously. Imelda Staunton was amazing, but I would kill to see le Streep at it.

Lockhart: Kenneth Branagh or Colin Firth.

Draco: Jack Gleeson. He plays a blonde snot well enough in Game of Thrones.

Sirius: Mark Strong.

Hmm, I can't think of any more. Heck, just divide the roles equally between Meryl Streep and Gary Oldman. That outta do it.

Re: Re-cast the movies!

Bob Hoskins -- Professor Slughorn
Nicole Kidman -- Narcissa Malfoy
Daniel Day-Lewis -- Fenrir Greyback
Karen Gillian -- Lily Potter (Please?)
Aaron Johnson-- James Potter (Please also?)
Johnny Depp or Robert Downey, Jr -- Sirius Black (however, OOTP Gary Oldman has now been imprinted in my brain as Sirius Black)
Julian Sands -- Remus Lupin (Though, again, David Thewlis has been imprinted on my brain!)
Angela Lansbury -- Bathilda Bagshot
