From whips to wands.

For most actors, landing a role in just one of the most successful movie franchises in history would be a dream come true — but for Jim Broadbent, it wouldn’t even tell half the story.

Broadbent, whose decades in TV and film have included appearances in Brazil, Moulin Rouge, and the Bridget Jones movies, has entered the Land of Highly Anticipated Blockbuster Sequels — not only is he currently filming a role in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but it’s just been announced that he will be joining the cast of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Dark Horizons was lucky enough to get an interview with Broadbent, and in an excerpt posted yesterday, he shed a little light on both productions.

First, the details on Broadbent’s participation in Indy 4, which he finishes next month:

I’m Indiana’s academic colleague at Yale. I’m his friend and colleague — there’s a couple of my scenes to go.

The actor also shares a tidbit or two regarding his Harry Potter role:

He’s called Horace Slughorn. He’s 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.
