I’m closer in age to the Marauders - in the time of the books! - than I am to the kids. This is not a post about feeling old, this is a post about how continually pissed I am at the Marauder movie casting.
No but really. Here is a list of actors who could legitimately play Lupin or Sirius if the movie were made today:
Joseph Gordon Levitt
Like that’s how young they were during book 3. Or how about some people who were 33 when the movie was made?
Not that I’m saying any of these people should have been cast (except Ewan McGregor Jesus Christ now I’m mad about that too) just want to give an idea how how god damn YOUNG THEY WERE. And I’m like crazy tired of casting up so that the audience isn’t scandalized or some shit. His parents died when they were 21. Their ghosts would be 21. Harry’s father figure can be in his early 30’s. We’ll all do a small amount of math and live through it together.
