Helena Bonham Carter has just been cast to play the role of Bellatrix LeStrange in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. You know Bellatrix, right? She finishes off that guy in that final battle at that place in Book 5.
She's a murderer, a Death Eater, and her acts in Book 5 brought me to tears. Bitch.
But I must say I am thrilled now that I know who Helena Bonham Carter is.
Marla f'n Singer. I love that character in Fight Club. Apparently, she also was the Corpse Bride and Charlie's mom in Charlie & The Chocolate Factory (the one with Johnny Depp).
The original actress cast to play Bellatrix (Helen McCrory) is pregnant and will be very pregnant when they need her the most.
I like seeing folk I recognize in the HP movies. Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort in Goblet of Fire was outstanding.
That scene was downright scary. (Ralph Fiennes played Dolarhyde in Red Dragon amongst a million others.)
