The last part of Harry Potter is about here to be shown 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
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.
Petunia and Vernon Dursley – Lori Petty and Kevin James
Petunia Dursley was the older sister of Lily Potter. During her childhood, she broke off contact with her sister, because she was jealous of her magical abilities, and thus stopped any contact with the wizarding world. She married a Muggle, Vernon Dursley and they lived at Number Four, Privet Drive along with their son Dudley. The Dursleys gave Harry a home after his parents where killed, but disliked him and treated him badly.
Dudley Dursley – Spencer Breslin
Dudley Dursley, a very spoiled child, was a cousin of Harry Potter. He became unpleasantly fat and insolent and often tormented Harry, taking after the example set by his parents. After he faced Dementors, and was saved by Harry, he mellowed and began to be kinder to Harry.
Marjorie “Marge” Dursley – Roseanne Arnold
Marjorie “Marge” Dursley was Vernon Dursleys sister. She was unmarried, having a career in breeding bulldogs. She was an unpleasant and arrogant woman, whose wealth appeared to be substantial, as she gave her nephew Dudley expensive gifts.
Nearly Headless Nick – George Clooney
Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington (known after his death as Nearly Headless Nick) was a wizard who attended Hogwarts, where he was sorted into Gryffindor. He was executed by an improper decapitation – since then he is the resident ghost of Gryffindor Tower.
The Bloody Baron – Michael Praed
The Bloody Baron was a wizard who was sent to find Helena Ravenclaw in Albania, but she refused to go with him and he killed her. Covered in her blood he realised what had happened and stabbed himself with a knife and died. Since then, he is the ghost of Slytherin house.
The Grey Lady – Melissa Gilbert
Helena Ravenclaw (known as the Grey Lady after her death) was a witch and the daughter of Rowena Ravenclaw. She was loved by the Bloody Baron, but she did not love him. The Baron killed her and she returned as a ghost to Hogwarts Castle, where she is the Ghost of Ravenclaw House.
Peeves – Danny de Vito
Peeves was a poltergeist at Hogwarts. Fond of mischief and chaos, he was a constant pain to the school and its inhabitants, especially Argus Filch, with the only one being able to control him being the Bloody Baron.
Moaning Myrtle – Nikki Reed
Myrtle, more commonly known as Moaning Myrtle, was a Muggle-born witch who was killed by Salazar Slytherins Basilisk, under Tom Riddles orders. Now she is a ghost who haunts the second floor girls bathroom at Hogwarts.
