Voldemort?!?!

According to this ITV article, the rumor that Rowan Atkinson is going to be in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is true, and that he’s going to play Voldemort! Voldemort? Voldemort! That’s some goofy casting. I am having serious difficulty imagining Rowan Atkinson in a sinister and non-funny role, notwithstanding the fact that he’s a brilliant comic actor.

  1. Voldemort isn’t funny? He’s a half-destroyed evil genius semi-vampire who talks to snakes. How do you play that straight? If RA doesn’t figuratively twirl his mustache through this role, I’ll be deeply disappointed.

  2. Voldemort is only somewhat more creepy and evil than the Elizabethan Edmund Blackadder. It shouldn’t be much of a stretch.
