Harry Potter Actor Devon Murray Is Ordered to Pay Former Agent After Lawsuit

This Harry Potter star is in a bit of financial hot water with his former agent.  Devon Murray, the actor synonymous with wizard Seamus Finnigan for all eight films of the famous franchise, appeared in Dublin's High Court Friday to learn his fate regarding an ongoing civil suit.

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Third Harry Potter Movie a Major Letdown. Is CGI Enough to Create On-Screen Magic?

'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' poster. With Daniel Radcliffe. Rupert Grint. Emma Watson. 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' quiz question: Does state-of-the-art CGI equal movie magic? (Oscar Movie Series) Alfonso Cuarón seems like an odd choice for director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the third installment in the Harry Potter movie series. That is, if one thinks only of Cuarón's pre-Harry Potter sleeper hit, the François Truffaut-esque Y tu mamá también, while ignoring two of his earlier efforts, the critically acclaimed A Little Princess and the moderately respected Great Expectations. This time around, working with a reported $130 million budget (approx. $163 million in 2015), state-of-the-art special effects, and the Harry Potter franchise, Cuarón surely could do no wrong. At the box office, that is. For although Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is stylistically superior to Chris Columbus' previous work in the series,

Harry Potter then and now: What do 12 of the child stars look like today?

It's been a whopping 14 years since Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone made its big screen debut.

A lot has changed since then - most notably the child stars which the movie franchise made famous.

Now - after the internet was astonished to see what Harry Potter's Neville Longbottom looks like now - Digital Spy has donned our sorting hat to see what the now-muggles look like today...

1. Harry Melling as Dudley Dursley

Post-Potter, Harry Melling has had parts in Merlin, Just William and Garrow's Law. Last year, he also performed a one-man play in New York called peddling and starred opposite Scarlett Johnson, Patsy Ferran and Felix Scott in The Angry Brigade.

2. Matthew Lewis as Neville Longbottom

We nearly lost our Snitch when we saw the transformation Matthew Lewis has had since his days as Neville Longbottom. He's gained a beard, good looks and also a role in BBC Three comedy Bluestone 42.

Jk Rowling for Harry Potter-inspired movie series: The internet reacts
Jk Rowling is returning to the world of Harry Potter in a new team up with Warner Bros, it was announced yesterday (September 12). The author will make her screenwriting debut with Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

The film will be based on the textbook of the same name featured in the Harry Potter series, and will follow the adventures of its fictitious author Newt Scamander.

The announcement of Rowling's return to the wizarding world sent the internet into meltdown yesterday and fans, stars and critics have been sharing their opinions of the decision ever since. Digital Spy rounds up a selection of the online reactions below...

Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'White House Down' & More

"Americans ... still believe in an America where anything's possible — they just don't think their leaders do." – Barack Obama

Greetings from the apocalypse! This week some Texas Republicans tried to implement a dastardly plan but were narrowly defeated by plucky State Senator Wendy Davis. Hopefully direct-to-video kings The Asylum can make a "White House Down" knockoff called "Texas State Capitol Down" for DVD shelves two weeks from now, starring Debbie Gibson as Wendy Davis. Yay!

Pow! In Theaters

Ah Roland Emmerich, only you have the antidote to the summer blues. The German who's cinematically blitzkrieged more than one of our national landmarks several times over is taking down 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue once again in "White House Down." He's enlisted Channing Tatum as an Aryan super soldier to rescue President Ray Charles (Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx) from terrorists intent on burning Washington D.C. to the ground.

Three Horcruxes down and long past the point of no return, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) – alongside best friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) – are busy planning their next assault on Voldemort’s (Ralph Fiennes) divided soul. With Gringots Wizarding Bank and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry both harbouring Horcruxes, the trio must draw on their six years of education, their combined ingenuity and a number of assorted peers and allies if they are to destroy He Who Must Not Be Named and liberate the wizarding world once and for all.

Orlando, Florida — "Harry Potter" fans, you're not the only ones who adore Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and the rest of the Hogwarts gang. The film series' co-stars share your feelings.

When MTV News visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter's celebration of the "Deathly Hallows Part 2" DVD and Blu-ray release, we asked your favorite actors what they miss most about working on the eight-film fantasy epic. The answers we received were unanimous: the "Potter" cast miss one another.

"I miss hanging out with the guys," lamented Oliver Phelps, one-half of the hilarious Weasley twins. "A Harry Potter film isn't like a normal movie. It's stretched out for nine months, it's big-budget ... but we'd all just have fun, though. It's not like

Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)

Matthew Lewis, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

Photo: Warner Bros. Last November the mood was set as audiences were teased with only half of a whole film. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was the slow and methodical setup for the ultimate payoff that is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and the wait was worth it. Action packed and filled with tension, Part 2 of the finale to the Harry Potter saga is the half that makes a whole, adding an additional two hours and ten minutes to Part 1, we're talking about a four-and-a-half-hour epic that makes for what's arguably the best film of the franchise.

Picking up where Part 1 left off, Dobby the house elf is dead, the Order of the Phoenix is in shambles and Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2: Hands-on Game Preview – Pure Wizarding Bedlam

Expelliarmus!

On July 15, the world will come to a halt as the Harry Potter franchise’s last movie installment comes to theaters in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. 3 days before “it all ends”, EA releases the video game adaptation for the movie on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii.

We recently got our hands on the second part of the Harry Potter finale game. While most core gamers may cringe when they hear the words “video game adaptation”, the second installment of Deathly Hallows actually did an amazing job of bringing to life the atmosphere of Harry’s inevitable showdown with Voldomort and all the carnage taking place at Hogwarts before the conclusion. It’s pure wizarding bedlam.

Characters like Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint), Seamus Finnigan (Devon Murray), Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis), Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) and Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright) are brought to life through the voices of their corresponding feature film actors.

Four New Posters for ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2′ Show Heroes, Villains, an Epic Showdown and a Gigantic Dragon
[1] With just one month left before the Harry Potter film series ends for good, it feels like we're getting a some new bit of promotional material practically every day. At this point, I've lost count of just how many posters we've already seen for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. But as long as they look this fantastic, I'm not complaining. In the days since we last showed you the last batch [2] of posters, featuring the heroes and villains looking dirty and bloodied, a handful of new posters have been released. Hit the jump to see the forces of good, an army of evil, and a huge-ass dragon. Though Warner Bros. has released character posters for practically all the major players (except Ginny! Why?), it's now released two more posters that show the characters organized into factions. In the first poster, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) stands looking determined and battle-worn,

Comicpalooza Adds Guests This Weekend

Comicpalooza, the largest comic-con/pop culture event in Texas, is taking place this weekend — but that hasn't stopped the organizers from adding awesome new guests and events to the already-stuffed schedule.

Actress Meaghan Rath, from the hit Syfy series Being Human, has just joined the roster of actors, which already includes celebrities such as Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica), Sam Trammell (True Blood), Tony Todd (Candyman), Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity), Peter Mayhew (Star Wars), Nick Jones (Green Lantern), Jeremy Bulloch (Star Wars) and Marina Sirtis (Star Trek).

For all you Harry Potter devotees, actor Devon Murray has also been added to the guest list. Apparently, Murray is known as Seamus Finnegan in the hallowed halls of Hogwarts. (I've never actually seen a Harry Potter flick, so I have to take their word on this one.)

And fans of sci-fi and fantasy fiction will be thrilled by the addition of Tad Williams,

Rupert Grint Greets His Fans!

Grint alert! I have finally uploaded the first batch of the videos I filmed two days ago in London, at the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I was given the opportunity to exchange a few words (and smiles) with Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe, Jessie Cave, Freddie Stroma, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Matthew Lewis, Tom Felton, Jim Broadbent, Jason Isaacs, Helen McCrory and the producer David Barron. (I also filmed quite a few others, such as Emma Watson, Bonnie Wright, Evanna Lynch, Devon Murray etc. but didn't have time to talk to them.) I was sharing the red carpet spot (and the umbrella) with Nick from MuggleNet and Mary from Harry Latino, so I'll be swapping videos with them as well. Instead of a classical report, I'm going to let the video clips do the talking! So please head over to this page, where you will find
