First part of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ is in theaters – that’s why I was thinking about some kind of a re-casting. I’ll not bother about ages – means the students are not that young they are for real and not all teachers are really old. I want to do that casting according to the books, which means there are many characters – and I’ll split it up into … no, not seven like the books but like the movies in … eight parts:
Part 1 – Muggles and Ghosts HERE
Part 2 – Villains and Slytherin
Part 3 – Order of Phoenix
Part 4 – Ministry of Magic and others
Part 5 – Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and foreign kids
Part 6 – Teachers
Part 7 – Gryffindor
and last but not least Part 8 finally inlcuding the main-characters Harry, Ron and Hermione.
Lord Voldemort – Timothy Olyphant
Tom Marvolo Riddle, later known as Lord Voldemort, was the most powerful Dark Wizard of all time. He was a half-blood wizard raised in a muggle orphanage. At Hogwarts he was sorted into Slytherin house and got outstanding grades in every examination he took. He was cruel, sadistic, manipulative and power hungry.
Lucius und Narzissa Malfoy – Craig Parker and Kristen Dunst
Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy were both aristocratic pure-blooded wizards and parents to Draco. Narcissa was the youngest sister of Bellatrix Lestrange and Andromeda Tonks. Lucius who believed strongly in notions of blood purity and joined the Death Eaters. Narcissa also believed in the importance of blood purity and supported her husband. But this changed when Dracos life was put in jeopardy by the Dark Lord.

He betrayed James, Lily and Harry and spent years living in his Animagus form as the Weasley familys pet rat, Scabbers.
Fenrir Greyback – Tom Hanks
Fenrir Greyback was a werewolf notorious for his savagery and preference for attacking children. He was a leader in his community and strived to infect as many people as possible with lycanthropy, hoping to build an army strong enough to eventually take over the wizarding community. He was the one who bit Remus Lupin.

He eventually broke free and again entered Voldemort’s service, posing as Alastor Moody. In this role Barty manipulated the Triwizard Tournament so that Harry Potter got transported to Voldemort in the end.
Draco Malfoy – Jackson Rathbone
Draco Malfoy is Harrys natural enemy since Harry refused to drop Ron Weasley as friend in favour of him. Draco always walks around with two bodyguards, Crabbe and Goyle.
