Ron Perlman has been cast in the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
It was announced on Friday (9th October), that the actor, best known for his roles in Hellboy and Sons of Anarchy, had joined the film’s ever-growing cast – with sources telling The Hollywood Reporter that Perlman would occupy the role of a Goblin.
The film, which has already begun shooting in London, stars Eddie Redmayne as the Wizarding World’s most esteemed magizoologist, Newt Scamander – fictional author of the Fantastic Beasts journal later used by Hogwarts students.
Some other new names which have only recently been added to the film’s roster of stars, include Jon Voight, Gemma Chan and Carmen Egojo, who will join previously announced cast-members, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Dan Fogler and Samantha Morton in the fantasy-adventure penned by J.K Rowling.
Directed by David Yates, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is set to be released on 18th November 2016.
