Jim Broadbent is Horace Slughorn

September 19, 2007

Speaking to Dark Horizons, Jim Broadbent revealed that he has been assigned the goofy name of Horace Slughorn, apparently for some kind of movie about a boy wizard and his friends, who are also wizards. Broadbent described the character as:

a retired teacher of magic who's drawn back out of retirement because he's got some secrets they need in the battle against the Deatheaters and he's quite star struck as a teacher and he's drawn back into the fold because he likes to notch up celebrity students, and he's drawn back by Harry.

I'm going to be so glad when they finish the fourteenth movie or whatever we're going to and I don't have to keep hearing grown men and women throw around names like Slughorn and Deatheaters and Hogwarts and all this crap. It's really getting embarrassing as a society, and it distracts me from my discussions of Anakin Skywalker's midichlorian count as compared to Mace Windu and the rest of the Jedi council.
