Hmm? Sorry for trying to make things a little better....

As for the dumbledore guy, I didnt really like him in the movies(mostly because I didnt live the movie). But I am sorry that he died(then again,this isnt shocking news to m, heard it the day before).

Yeah, it's a real sad thing.....I was sad when Desmond Lewellen died in that car wreck.......:(

But this is only the beginning though.. Celebrity deaths always come in 3's... Look at Darryl Kyle of the St Louis Cardinals, Joe Buck, and Hoyt Wilhelm... All died within the same time period...

Hhmm.....interesting theory 867. I hope that it is wrong though. Is that kind of like the rule of 3 from American Pie 2???? :p

They got a little longer to worry about that, because they've got to film the 3rd movie, The Prisoner of Azkaban first. Goblet of Fire is the 4th one.

And Sivy, how do you know they'll be using his stand-in for the rest of the movies? They haven't announced anything about it yet. Or are you just assuming they will because he did some scenes in the 2nd movie?

He had Hodgkin's disease, a form of cancer that attacks the lymph nodes.

Apparently there are two contenders for the role of Dumbledore in the next movie. One is Richard Harris' stand-in...who is apparently good. The other is...wait for it...CHRISTOPHER LEE!

Do you know the sad irony of this? Christopher Lee is over 80, and Richard Harris died at the age of 72. I don't know what old Chris is on...but at this rate I can still see him acting when he's 100. :eyeraise:

Mind you...Sir John Mills is still kicking around too...and he's in his 90's. :)

I'd like to know where you heard that - I don't imagine that anything has even been discussed yet about the replacement for Harris, so any "news" is probably just rumors or conjecture at this point. Besides, Lee as Dumbledore just doesn't fit... I can't imagine Rowling giving him the green light to replace Harris.

Some newspaper that was lying on a desk at work today. Forget which one.

And you're probably right...it's just rumour and speculation at the moment. :) 90% of newspaper articles are pure fiction, and the other 10% are lies. :(

I have a hard time imagining Christopher Lee degrading himself in that fashion...from Saruman to dumbledore!!

But it was really sad about Harris, though. Just wondered, is he the actor that played Emperor Marcus Aurelius in Gladiator?

Yes. And he's been in too many other films to mention them all. Oh well..alright then. Try this link (http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hc&id=1800011800&cf=movies&intl=us) for some of his more well-known films/roles. Mind you, that list pales into insignificance compared to one for Christopher Lee (http://www.tiscali.co.uk/entertainment/film/biographies/christopher_lee_films.html) himself. :eek:

I still cry when I think about John Lennon, that death makes me really sad. I never saw Harry Potter so I don't know who Dumbledore is. What else was he in?

I heard some rumors about Christopher Lee taking his role. I cant make it fit anywhere though.

Well, its prolly just a rumor. BTW its a long time since he died, and so is that rumor.
