    Christopher Lee the new Prof Dumbledore?

    http://www.comingsoon.net

    Based on comments on his Official Website, it appears that Christopher Lee may indeed be in talks with Warner Bros. for the role of Dumbledore:

    Sorry to change the content of this news. Mr Lee has not received official confirmation from Warner Bros and until then, we cannot confirm or comment any further.

    Obviously it would be wonderful news and Mr Lee is overwhelmed, but for the time being nothing is certain.

    ACTOR Christopher Lee is tipped to take over Richard Harris’s role of Professor Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films.

    The Dracula star, 80, is a “strong favourite” to replace Harris — who died last Friday aged 72.

    Executives said Lee — a Bond villain in The Man With The Golden Gun — “fits the bill of Dumbledore perfectly”.

    Lee was originally asked to be Dumbledore but refused because he was too busy.

    Harris stand-in Harry Robinson is also in the running to land the role for the third film Prisoner of Azkaban, filmed next spring. Warner Bros will make an announcement this weekend.

    wow and he is already 80

    Christopher Lee, through his official Web site, denied a rumor that he had signed on to replace the late Richard Harris as Professor Albus Dumbledore in the third Harry Potter movie, The Prisoner of Azkaban. "Mr. Lee has not received official confirmation from Warner Brothers, and until then, we cannot confirm or comment any further," Lee's spokesman wrote on the site. "Obviously it would be wonderful news, and Mr. Lee is overwhelmed, but for the time being, nothing is certain."

    The British Sunday Mirror tabloid newspaper reported a rumor that Harry Robinson, who was Richard Harris' double in the first two Harry Potter films, will most likely take over the role of Professor Dumbledore in the third film, The Prisoner of Azkaban, according to a report on the Zap2it Web site. "Producers have told Harry there's a very strong chance of him getting the part," an anonymous source told the Mirror. For his part, the 72-year-old Robinson told the tabloid that "it would be my tribute to someone I was very fond of."

    Harris, who was also 72, died from complications of Hodgkin's disease in London last weekend. Robinson not only looks like Harris, but can also impersonate his voice, the newspaper reported. Production on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is set to begin in the spring.

    Personally, I think Lee's acting style is too harsh to play the part of Prof. Dumbledore. While nobody can ever replace Richard Harris, Harry Robinson is a better choice to follow in his footsteps.

    Youre right. He's too much of a wicked character to play Dumbledore.....
    But he's a great actor.
