Castium Revelio: Tennant Back in the Tardis

Welcome to this week’s edition of MuggleNet’s Casting News! After last week’s dive into royal life, we’re sharing all of the spoilers from the Thirteenth Doctor’s last day in the Tardis, as well as showing you trailers starring Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint. Castium Revelio!



Harry Potter Cast and Crew

You can catch Daniel Radcliffe in the upcoming fourth season of Miracle Workers, titled Miracle Workers: End Times. The comedy anthology show will see an apocalypse this season, which is set to premiere on TBS on January 16. Radcliffe has played a different character in each season so far, and we can't wait to see who he'll star as in this season. Check out the teaser below and let us know what you think.



We've got another trailer for you now. This one is for the fourth and final season of Servant, a drama series in which Rupert Grint stars as Julian. The final season will premiere on Apple TV+ on January 13. You can watch the trailer below.



Evanna Lynch has joined the voice cast of Being Betty Flood, an animated film about a young girl's desire to prove her magical and musical abilities while also trying to find her place in the world. Lynch is set to star as Betty in the film, which currently doesn't have a release date.

This new role isn't the only thing that Lynch has been getting involved in recently. She's also joined a campaign encouraging King Charles III to turn the royal Windsor Dairy Farm into an animal sanctuary in order to honor the late queen. The farm is home to cows, pigs, and hens, all of which produce goods that are sold in the Windsor Farm Shop, including meat and ice cream.

Next, we've got exciting news on Sir Kenneth Branagh (Gilderoy Lockhart). He'll pick up the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's Richard Harris International Film Festival, which is named, of course, after the actor who first played Albus Dumbledore. The festival is currently taking place in Limerick, Ireland, and is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. Congrats to Branagh on the award!

It's time for trailer number three. This one stars not one but four Harry Potter alums. Harry Melling (Dudley Dursley), Timothy Spall (Peter Pettigrew), Toby Jones (voice of Dobby), and Simon McBurney (voice of Kreacher) are teaming up in The Pale Blue Eye, a horror mystery about a detective who returns to the job after a cadet is murdered. He finds that only one person will help him: Edgar Allan Poe. The film will start streaming on Netflix on January 6, but until then, you can check out the film's first trailer below.



We're talking Doctor Who next, so click away if you haven't seen Jodie Whittaker's finale yet. We already knew that we would see David Tennant (Barty Crouch Jr.) return to the show for three special anniversary episodes, but Whovians were all expecting to see the previously announced next Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa (Sex Education), appear during the regeneration. Instead, however, she regenerated into Tennant's familiar face. David Bradley (Argus Filch) also made a return to the show, celebrating his contribution to the show as the First Doctor. You can watch a small teaser clip below!

Fantastic Beasts Cast and Crew

Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander) has been talking about his latest film, The Good Nurse, which came out last week. He spoke on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert about the nurse training he completed before filming began, the differences between UK and US sets, and his children's reactions to his latest role, as well as how unique this true crime film is from others. Check out the clips of the interview below.




Redmayne also recently spoke with Radio Times about The Good Nurse, describing how he had never heard of the case before taking on the role, but once he read the script, he was "so intrigued by this person, and what was behind him." He also said his costar, Jessica Chastain, found the film "incredibly difficult" while shooting.

Our last update this week sees a new limited series starring Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore). We don't know much about the show, other than that it will run on Netflix and will be called Black Rabbit. Law is working in conjunction with Jason Bateman (Ozark) to executive produce the show, with Bateman set to direct. We'll let you know of any updates when we get more information.

That’s a wrap on this week’s Casting News! Do you have any theories about the Fourteenth Doctor or what we could see from any of the other projects we’ve talked about today? Let us know in the comments below.
