Yesterday we shared a report that both Naomi Watts and Joseph Fiennes would be appearing in the sixth Harry Potter film. Not so fast, says some folks.
According to the MTV Movies Blog, representatives for Naomi Watts,
Joseph Fiennes, and Stuart Townsend have denied the reports completely. Apparently it all came from one erroneous source — or (more likely) the actors’ reps and producers are just trying to keep the contracts and castings under wraps for now.
We don’t even know which characters Fiennes and Townsend would have been playing, but it’s been buzzed for a while that Ms. Watts would be playing the unpleasant Narcissa Malfoy. So if she ends up getting the role in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, we know someone’s been pulling our leg.
