First reported earlier in the week, it is now confirmed that Domhnall Gleeson (son of Brendan Gleeson, Mad-Eye Moody) has been cast as Bill Weasley in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films.
Domhnall Gleeson is a Tony-nominated actor, who was reluctant at first to play a part beside his father, but is now quite eager for the role.
Domhnall Gleeson is an Irish actor who will play Bill Weasley in the film adaptations of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. He will work alongside his father, Brendan Gleeson, who has portrayed Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody since Goblet of Fire.
He was nominated for a Tony Award in 2006 for his role as Davey in the play The Lieutenant of Inishmore.
The French Harry Potter site, L’ Univers de Harry Potter , spoke to Jamie’s manager at the Cannes Film Festival. Jamie’s manager confirmed what had long been rumored on Harry Potter sites, that Jamie Campbell Bower would be playing the role of Grindelwald in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is currently filming on the UK seacoast. The next installment, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was originally slated to open last November, but Warner Brothers changed their date to July (in fact they recently changed it to open two days earlier than announced) which opened up the opportunity for Twilight to run unchallenged in the teen market this past fall.
