As we reported some time ago, Jude Law has now officially signed on to play Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore - or just Dumbledore - in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
Law will be joining Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander in the next continuation of the Wizarding World Of JK Rowling, but it appears as though there'll be more characters introduced. In an open casting call - that's anyone with or without acting experience being allowed to enter - for the sequel, a number of new names came up.
The call is looking for Young Leta LeStrange and Young Sebastian, aged between 13 and 16, and younger versions of Dumbledore, Newt Scamander, and Gellert Grindelwald. Grindelwald was played by (spoilers) Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp in the first film, and it appears he'll be the protagonist of the series going forward.
According to the casting call, "no previous acting experience is necessary, but applicants need to be eligible to work in the UK - meaning they must be a UK, Irish, or EU passport holder" and all you need is a headshot. The shoot is set to take place in August, with the call closing by June 20th - so get your headshots in if you think you know someone who looks like a young Michael Gambon / Jude Law, Johnny Depp or Eddie Redmayne.
