Okay, ew. Has anyone seen the new images from the 3rd Harry Potter movie? I am horribly, terribly, deeply disappointed with the choices for Sirius Black and Remus Lupin, my two favorite characters. Gary Oldman is a fine actor, really, but he is not Sirius Black. No, no, no. See attached image, and you'll understand. Yick.

So, what are all the other HP geeks' opinions?

My Sirius/Remus slash will never be the same.

It could be worse. ^^;; Gary Oldman isn't my top pick, certainly, but I think he's a better choice for Sirius than David Thewlis as Remus.

Just picture them differently in your mind when you read RL/SB slash! XD

Wah...you're not sirius, are you??? (gets fruit thrown at her due to bad pun) That's not how I pictured him at all. We'll *have* to picture them differently if we read RL/SB slash, lol.

I have a much bigger issue with David Thewlis. *shrudders* I've always pictured Remus as having more pointed features, rather than... all dull... like David. I expected better.

Of course, with Gary Oldman, they could have done better, but I'm by no means a Sirius fan.

My slash pairing isn't as good, either. Wasn't since the first movie came out. *scowls, waving a Severus/Remus banner*

Snape/Lupin disturbs me only slightly less than Snape/Harry. ^^;;

But I love all my fellow slash fans. XD

Hm. Does anyone know who was cast as Pettigrew?

Timothy Spall plays Peter.

Whenever I look at the pictures of Sirius and Remus, I feel like crying. I bet Warner Brothers chose such. . . well, not-so-hot actors to try to stop the mad slash-writers. XD

Ooh...that's just wrong. Sirius was always described as good looking, or as having been good looking when he was younger and nourished and not you know, running from the Ministry. I don't like it one bit.

Ooh... anything cross-generation really bugs me. *squirms* Of course, I'm someone who wrote a fanfic for the Dumbledore/Dobby ship. *hangs her head in shame* At least it was only for fun.

Hermione looks like the same actor to me. She's just growing up.

I didn't like the decision to cast Oldman as Sirius from the first moment I heard it. He doesn't look right at all. (This has nothing to do with slash, which is a phenomenon that I simply do not understand and in many cases find quite creepy.)

I can see casting someone who can make Sirius seem scary at first, and Oldman fits the bill there -- but Sirius also needs to become sympathetic later, and I can't see Oldman pulling that off. Maybe I have him type-cast in my mind, but he just doesn't work for me...

I don't know anything about the actor they picked for Lupus, and I never had that strong of a mental image of L. either. But he should look wolfish, and the actor in that photo looks too bland to me.

Feh

I agree.. Gary Oldman is a good actor, but not as Snape. I just watched the 2nd Harry Potter the other night and I had to laugh when I first heard Ron speak... Whoo someone hit puberty. hehehe

Tom Felton (the actor who plays Draco) is sixteen now! Only two more years until I can legally lust over him! XD

I must agree that Gary Oldman doesn't fit Sirius at all


the Sirius in my imagination was quite good looking, if i do say so myself. . .

It is the same girl playing Hermione according to imdb.com .. though she does look quite differeng in that pic.

Nevertheless, I can't want to see PoA on the big screen!

At the same time, I'm dreading what they're gonna do to GoF ..

I want to go to see PoA as Hermione. But only because I look like her. Otherwise, I'd go as Severus. Har, and I could yell at children. *cackles* I'd be a good Snape.

Heh... that was... random.

Ceryna, in England the age of consent is 16 so if you come here you can legally lust after him now!

I actually think Gary Oldman will be quite good as Sirius, don't know much about David Thewlis though. And Timothy Spall is great, so that should work out OK.

Must re-read the book, don't remember any of it!
