Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

He's always had that twinkle in his eyes, but now Bill Nighy's magic will be on full display. Yes, Bill's been given a part (a "goodie") in the next Harry Potter film. Huzzah! The rumours are that he'll play Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, a man with bushy eyebrows, glasses, and a face like "an old lion". I'll just go out on a limb here: Bill could eat me up any day.


Scrimgeour succeeds Cornelius Fudge at the end of Half-Blood Prince, trying to reverse Fudge's failings but, well, not really succeeding. Nighy told The Independent: "I don't think I'm allowed to say it but I'm going to be in the next Harry Potter film. I won't say which character, but he's a goodie. I just got the gig." This is wonderful stuff - he once (quite rightly) complained that he was the only Brit thesp not to get a role in the series - but has Bill even read the books? "Not yet, but I will! It's rather like being in a Shakespeare that way, you know?" Erm, yes. The two-part adaptation of Deathly Hallows is out November 2010 and July 2011.
