Bill Nighy to play 'goodie' in next Harry Potter flick

Thursday July 2, 2009

Actor Bill Nighy has confirmed that he will appear in forthcoming fantasy Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows - the final installment of the series.

"I don't think I'm allowed to say it but I'm going to be in the next Harry Potter film. I won't say which character, but he's a goodie." the actor reveals.

Although it has been previously reported that Bill will play Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour, the actor has not given away any more details about his role.

Having just finished promoting his latest project, The Boat That Rocked, with Rhys Ifans, the British actor will appear in the second part of Deathly Hallows, due for release in July 2011.

Filmed in two parts, the first half of the new flick will hit cinemas in November 2010.
