Jude Law Picks His Favorite Young Dumbledore Nickname on 'Late Show'

Jude Law stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night (November 5) and chose his his favorite fan-created nickname for his Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald character, young Albus Dumbledore.

“I like Yum-Dumbledore, it kind of has a culinary feel to it,” the 45-year-old actor told Stephen. “Actually no, I’m going to stick with Dumble-damn.”

Jude also opened up about meeting up with J.K. Rowling before starting to film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which hits theaters on November 16.

“I went to her immediately. As soon as I got the part, I thought, ‘I’ve got this responsibility to all these fans of this wizarding world.’ Also, I really wanted to meet J.K. Rowling! It seemed like a pretty good in-road. So, yes, I spent an afternoon with her, and she told me everything [about] Albus Dumbledore,” Jude expressed. “It was wonderful and insightful. And what an opportunity for an actor, you know? I had this direct route to the detailed background and inner workings of my character. It was fantastic! She’s a phenomenal, formidable, smart, fun woman—really, really great company!”
