New Harry Potter film: Newt Scamander casting ideas
Image 1 of 21
A new Harry Potter film has been announced -- an adaptation of J.K. Rowling's companion book (and Hogwarts textbook) "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," with the screenplay being penned by Rowling herself.
Naturally, we must speculate on who will play the main character, fictitious book author Newt Scamander. We don't yet know exactly what age the lead will be -- will he be fresh out of Hogwarts or farther along in life? But we think we've covered the gamut of U.K. actors who could step into Newt's shoes.
