Bill Nighy joins HARRY POTTER & the DEATHLY HALLOWS

British actor Bill Nighy who is best known for his roles such as Viktor in the Underworld movies, the voice of Davy Jones in the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, and also memorable roles in Love Actually & Shaun of the Dead, is set to join the cast of HARRY POTTER & THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, where he will probably play the new Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour, who succeeds previous Minister Cornelius Fudge in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

In an interview with the British website, The Independent, Nighy confirmed his recent casting in the "Deathly Hallows" duology. "I don't think I'm allowed to say it but I'm going to be in the next Harry Potter film," he tells us. "I won't say which character, but he's a goodie. I just got the gig." If you don't mind us saying, it's about time, Bill. The rangy actor has been dropping hints for aeons, once complaining that he was "the only British actor who hasn't been in Harry Potter". While he can't announce that he's playing new Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour in the final film, Potter websites like The Leaky Cauldron are reporting that's the role he will be taking.

Production is underway on the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Part 2 under the direction of David Yates, based on a screenplay by Steven Kloves.
