A British actor named Jim Broadbent (Gangs of New York, Moulin Rouge) has been cast in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as Professor Slughorn, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. I had pictured Slughorn as shorter and portlier, but Broadbent is such a well-respected actor that I guess I’ll get used to it.
Broadbent is also appearing in the new Indiana Jones flick, titled Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
