This is the most exciting casting news for the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them yet: Ron Perlman as a goblin!
The news comes courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter and I was elated when I read the headline.
Ron Perlman! Hellboy! In the Harry Potter universe! As a GOBLIN. Give it to me.
The film, which follows Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a wizard and Magizoologist (someone who studies magical creatures) as he travels to document magical creatures, has a script penned by Harry Potter scribe herself J.K. Rowling.
Most recently, Gemma Chan, Carmen Ejogo, and Jon Voight joined the cast, but a fan-favorite like Perlman, known for roles in Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy, and more, is sure to delight fans endlessly.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, directed by David Yates and starring Eddie Redmayne, Ezra Miller, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, and Colin Farrell, is set to hit theaters on November 18, 2016.
