Broadbent in Potter

JimBroadbent.jpgJim Broadbent has secured the role of Slughorn in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and he's been talking about his role online.

"He's called Horace Slughorn. He's a retired teacher of magic who's drawn back out of retirement because he's got some secrets they need in the battle against the Deatheaters and he's quite star struck as a teacher and he's drawn back into the fold because he likes to notch up celebrity students, and he's drawn back by Harry."

The comment is over at Dark Horizons as part of an interview he did online and found through Rope of Silicon. The question is if Jim Broadbent will really suit the part or not, well Potter fans?

From a non-Potter reader point of view I think it's another strong casting of a great British actor. The Potter series is giving British talent the most work they've had in ages, and some of the highest profile roles.
