    Thumbs up Christopher Lee to be the next Dumbledore?

    As most of you know, Richard Harris has just passed away... He will be fondly remembered by many, including myself. For those of you who like the Happry Potter movies, I heard that Christopher Lee may play Dumbledore! After Harris's death, I had though they should hire him. What do you think? I think he'd be a great Dumbledore, and he would live up to Harris's portrayal of him.

    That's currently a huge rumor, since casting for the 3rd movie hasn't even begun yet. Not to mention that Christopher Lee is not really the Dumbledore type. Frankly if they want someone with a similar look, as well as a quality charecter actor, then they should look no further then Sir Ian McKellan for the role.

    I have to agree with you there, he just seems to forceful and powerful. I'm a Christopher Lee fan though, I suppose I am showing some partiality to him. But then again, he is an actor, he could make himself more Dumbledore-ish. I guess we'll just see...

    Christopher Lee needs time to work on Episode III in a few years, and not get caught up in Harry Potter.
    I, myself, love Harry Potter, the books are my favorites and the movie is my sixth favorite (guess what the first five are ). It was sad to hear of Richard's death. Ian McKellan has too big of a nose (kind of . . . ). I just remembered that Gandalf died in "Fellowship", so if he plays Albus in "Prisoner of Azkaban," it would not be too strange, because he would not be two bearded wizards at a time.

    What's with McKellan getting locked into the wizard typecasting?

    I think Chritopher Lee could pull off the gentle yet Dumbledore, but I'd be afraid Lee would croak before the rest of the series was finished, then there'd be a stigma attached to the role and NOBODY would want to play Dumbledore. Rowlings would have to write him out of the books!

    Anyway how about some other nominations?

    Ben Kingsley?

    Patrick Stewart?

    Michael Caine?

    I dunno, Sir Ian McKellan just screams Dumbledore to me for some reason. I know it seems like typecasting, but he does a damn good job playing a wizard. I can't really see anyone else in the role.

    A couple people said Sean Connery the other day, but no thank you. No one else pops as distingushed enough for the role to me. Sir Anthony Hopkins is distingushed, but wrong for the part. Hmm, not sure who else would be around the right age that is a good actor.

    What about Ian McDirmand. He's a pretty good charecter actor, and could always use a new breakout role. Plus he was pretty damn good as more refined and english in Sleepy Hollow. Yeah, that might be a good choice.

    That's who I was thinking about as he has a "kinder" more wizardly face than C. Lee

    Hmm, the story of Christopher Lee taking the role may actually turn out to be more then just rumor. His official website is confirming that he is in talks for to take over the role. I still say Sir Ian McKellan would be a better choice, but I'll keep an open mind. I am a huge Christopher Lee fan, ever since his Hammer Horror days.

    hahahhahahahah Christopher Walken?!?!?!?!?? yeah, get the guy who is ALWAYS the evil character and scares little children to play Dumbledore?!??!! That's the funniest thing I've heard all day.

    I don't think Lee is very Dumbledore friendly, he's too, I dunno, evil? You can't take the guy who played Dracula and then throw him into Dumbledore, it just wouldn't float. I'll go with McKellan for now.
