Jamie Campbell-Bower confirmed to play Grindelwald

UniversHarryPotter is reporting this evening that Jamie Campbell-Bower will indeed play Grindelwald in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The information was confirmed by Jamie's manager, who spoke to UniversHarryPotter at the Cannes Film Festival.

The rumor first appeared last month when The Daily Mail reported that he was in final negotiations for the part. Jamie recently had a lead role in Sweeney Todd and will appear as Caius in New Moon this November. Thanks to The Twilight Lexicon for the tip!
