As they reach the thrilling conclusion to the Harry Potter series on film, Warner Bros. is emptying the chambers on the English acting community, so many of whom will have been involved in the series by the end that they will have to bring Lawrence Olivier back from the dead to play Regulus Black in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In the meantime, however, casting is complete for the next film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth in the series.
Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge) will play Professor Slughorn, and young Jessie Cave, pictured above, will play Ron's love interest, Lavender Brown. The film has already begun shooting, in small little pieces, and should be out by next year's holiday season.
