Jared Harris Opens Up About Playing Dumbledore in 'Fantastic Beasts'

Jared Harris, whose late father Richard played Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films, is opening up about the possibility of taking on the same role in upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films!

After it was recently confirmed that Dumbledore will be making an appearance in the flicks, rumors began to swirl that Jared was in talks to play the younger version of his father’s character.

“They’re obviously thinking about it. I haven’t heard anything and I don’t expect to. It’s not up to me,” Jared told The Evening Standard.

He added, “Having seen [fan campaigns] before I find that [film bosses] don’t like to have their hands forced. These campaigns almost always go in a different direction.”

We’re still keeping our fingers crossed that Jared will take on the role!
