Another Harry Potter Kid Is Coming To American TV

Harry Potter’s bros are taking off into the exciting world of American television. Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) got his own show, and now Potter’s nemesis, Draco Malfoy, (Tom Felton) is following. He will totally do whatever Rupert does.

Mr. Felton will co-star in a TNT show about murder or some shit. I’m gonna let this article from Deadline take over with the details:

British actor Tom Felton, best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, has joined the cast of TNT’s drama pilot Murder In The First as a series regular. Co-created by Steven Bochco and Eric Lodal, the project is a murder mystery that centers on San Francisco PD homicide detectives Terry Seagrave (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson), as they take on a case that seems more like a maze. Felton will play Erich Blunt, the cocky, spectacularly wealthy CEO of Applicon, a tech genius.

So yeah, almost as far away from Harry Potter and All Kinds Of Crazy Bullshit Adventures as you can get.

He’s not really a kid anymore though, is he? He’s 25. We’re like almost the same age. That weirds me out. I will forever think of him as Draco Malfoy. But now I also want to bone him.

Draco and Ron Are Doing Fashion Shoots Together Now

What a weird turn of events for these long-time rivals, right? The Weasleys and the Malfoys have never been the best of friends, and the most publicized example that we have of this feud, that of Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy, is a particularly contemptuous one. But it looks like once again these feisty boys have put aside their differences to pose for some more pictures together, this time for an ad campaign for Band of Outsiders. Inspiring, right?

Tom Felton is Totally Da Man

There’s a part of me that just sincerely died because I typed that. Not even because Tom Felton is the lesser-loved of the Harry Potter franchise (I rather like him, to be honest), but because there is a magazine out there called Da Man. Such a sorry state in which we live, friends.

Anyway, Tom took the cover of the most recent edition, where he talked about his career, his upbringing, and his future cinematic plans.

On how Tom feels about HP finally ending:

That’s kind of a strange feeling now that it finally has come to the end. It’s kind of what you’ve been looking forward to for the past five or six years [since the last book was published], I guess. It’s a very strange thing. But overall, we’re very excited and happy and the thing about this last film is that it’s a really great ending to the series of films.

On his new role in Rise of the Planet of the Apes:

The film is a very different and fresh look at the Planet of the Apes franchise. It’s a prequel; it gives an understanding of how everything happens. It’s really sort of a frank story where you have scientists testing various different trials on apes. But my character is a real piece of work. He actually makes Draco look very soft.

On being typecast as a Draco Malfoy-like bad boy:

I hope to embrace it [actually]. I think British actors have quite a good pedigree in playing villainous roles and they seem very happy. So, I hope to embrace it, rather than shake it.

On upcoming features:

… There’s two other films that we’ve already shot as well and they’re coming out probably next year. One, called From the Rough, which is an independent film that I shot in New Orleans earlier this year, was a lot of fun. Another one is called The Apparition, with Ashley Greene from Twilight and Sebastian Stan from Captain America. It was a very, very cool shoot and [the movie] is kind of sci-fi/thriller/horror. My character is an expert in supernatural scientific experiments. It was a very cool role to play and I’m very excited to see that film.

On who he’d like to work with in the future:

So many people. There are a lot of people that I’ve already worked with; I’d love to have the opportunity to work with David Yates again—the director of the last four Harry Potter films. He’s a real inspiration to me. In terms of directors: Guy Ritchie, Edward Zwick, James Cameron, [Martin] Scorsese … there’s a never-ending list of directors I’d like to work with. And as far as actors go, I don’t know, but people like Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins are the guys I’ve seen time and time again in so many different roles and I enjoy their acting.

He’s grown up so much from the pointy-faced Draco Malfoy, hasn’t he? He’s almost looking like a sober, hotter Eminem these days, and honestly, I’m excited to see what he brings forth. Emma and Daniel have set the example, Tom’s following, and now we just need to get Rupert off of his dead stoner ass and get moving!

We Have Photos of The Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Don’t let the title mislead you: I’m not a fan of the original movies. Really, the only reason I’m putting these here photos up onto the site is because there were a lot of fun people in attendance, like Rupert Grint, Tom Felton … and Rupert Grint. There were a few others there, too, but none more important than those of the Harry Potter franchise.

Ooh, wait – John Lithgow was there, too and I just adore me some John Lithgow. Can anyone else look at him without thinking about the gremlin on the wing?:

Anyway. Back to the movie premiere. I wonder how good this movie can really be if the execs can’t even get the title nice. Rise OF THE Planet OF THE Apes? Could that roll of the tongue more awkwardly? Never mind. I told you earlier I was in a nitpicky mood today, so I’m not going to subject you to my complaining. Let’s just hold hands, make nice, and look at the pretty pictures of Rupert Grint and Tom Felton together, OK? Would that be alright?

Quotables: Tom Felton Is Joking, Right?

“I was thinking of doing some N-Dubz-style stuff. I am looking to get into the grime rap UK scene. I’m going to change my image – backward caps, the lot. It’s still under wraps so I can’t really talk about it.”

- Tom Felton pulling our legs/tabloids lying to us again. Right?

We know that Tom got himself a record deal not too long ago, but he sang these adorable little acoustic songs that were nowhere near “grime rap.” I just can’t believe that Draco would sincerely take up rapping. If I saw that lovely man with a backwards cap and some of that N-Dubz spirit, I might just have to call it a day. What about you?

Love It or Leave It: Harry Potter Edition!

Deathly Hallows is so, so close, you guys.  In a week’s time, you can mosey on down to your local movie theatre, crowd in to a dark room with a number of other nerds, and have such a magical experience.  You can laugh during the Seven Potters bit, you can cry during, well, nearly every other part, and you can curse the world when the movie ends halfway through the story.  Wondrous times are sure to be had by all.

The world premiere of the movie happened yesterday in London, and the cast celebrated this glorious occasion by being beautiful. Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint look fresh to death in their suits, and I can’t get over how amazing Emma Watson looks, even though it really shouldn’t be a shock at this point. If you check out the gallery, you can see Helena Bonham Carter looking like her crazy self, Ralph Fiennes showing remnants of Lord Voldemort and therefore making me feel a little weird for finding him attractive, more shots of Emma looking fierce as hell, and J.K. Rowling herself.  You can also play a little game called Spot The Inappropriately Placed Death Eater!

Quotables: Tom Felton on Crazy Draco Malfoy Fans

“I’ve had requests for adoption.  In America, a man changed his name legally to Lucius Malfoy.  [He] showed me the documentation and then sent me documents to disown my parents and move to be with him in the States in his house, which he had named Malfoy Manor.  I kindly rejected that.  That was quite scary.”

Ok, so on one hand, that is pretty creepy, and I understand that.  But on another hand that is much more prominent for me, I really want to see this guy and his house.  He’s probably just some middle-aged crazy renting a little house somewhere out in one of the Dakotas or something, but I’m a dreamer, and I want to believe that a beautiful man who is evil but somehow still likable to many has this huge, ornately decorated home and he just wants his son.

Sometimes I have a problem with the line between fiction and reality.  But you guys remember that time that Draco escaped his evil legacy and got a record deal, right?  I bet Narcissa was so proud.
