Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some interesting talk about who's been cast as one of the most despicable characters in any of the Harry Potter novels, Ms. Dolores Umbridge. It's been a rumor that VERA DRAKE's Imelda Staunton was up for the role for a couple weeks (although I hadn't heard that rumor until today, myself), but today she appeared on ITV's Good Morning program and confirmed that she had the role. She also said she hasn't read the script yet, but will begin filming in January.
I really like this casting. Staunton can be stern and creepy. She needs to stretch out her face a little more, to look like a frog... Umbridge is such a bitch! Just thinking about her pisses me off. Imelda Staunton will make me hate her guts in ORDER OF THE PHOENIX and I can't wait. What do you other Potter freaks think about this development?
