Daniel Radcliffe weighs in on the Johnny Depp Fantastic Beasts controversy

“The Boy who Lived”, Daniel Radcliffe, has offered up his thoughts on the controversy surrounding the casting of Johnny Depp in Fantastic Beasts, and its forthcoming sequel The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Radcliffe talked about the decision for the franchise to persevere with an actor who has been accused of spousal abuse, one that has seen criticism levelled at J.K. Rowling, and Warner Bros. in the past few months.

Radcliffe caveated his feelings by acknowledging how it was a difficult subject matter for him to discuss because the creative team behind the Fantastic Beasts movies “gave me a great start in life and an amazing job.” He went on to say “I can see why people are frustrated with the response that they were given from that … I’m not saying anything that anybody hasn’t already said — and this is a weird analogy to draw — [but] in the NFL,

Daniel Radcliffe Discusses Johnny Depp’s Continued Presence in ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’

Daniel Radcliffe Discusses Johnny Depp’s Continued Presence in ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’
“Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe told Entertainment Weekly that he “can see why people are frustrated” with his iconic character’s creator — “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” screenwriter/executive producer J.K. Rowling — and more of his former collaborators for their decision not to recast Johnny Depp in the upcoming film. Depp’s ex-wife, Amber Heard, has accused the three-time Oscar nominee of domestic violence during their marriage, which officially ended in January 2017.

Between late November and early December 2017, after the launch of the #MeToo movement, Rowling, the film’s director David Yates and producer David Heyman, and Warner Bros. all defended their decision to keep Depp as the titular character, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, although Rowling once considered finding another actor.

Daniel Radcliffe Speaks Out On Johnny Depp’s Role In Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

Johnny Depp is attached to the role of Gellert Grindelwald, and fans are none too pleased.

Back in 2016, Depp’s name was dragged into the public eye amid the abuse allegations made by his ex-wife, Amber Heard (Aquaman). The Hollywood duo have since settled their divorce and domestic abuse case, before releasing a joint statement in an attempt to set the record straight.

Still, question marks have been raised over Johnny Depp’s involvement in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, the Warner Bros. sequel in which he plays the titular dark wizard. Both David Yates and J.K. Rowling – director and screenwriter, respectively – have publically defended Depp, and now, Daniel Radcliffe has weighed in on the matter at hand:

“It’s a very hard thing for me,” Radcliffe said, noting he wants to be supportive of the film’s producers who “gave me a great start in life and an amazing job.

Fantastic Beasts 2 Team Defend Johnny Depp Casting

Fantastic Beasts 2 Team Defend Johnny Depp Casting
J.K. Rowling, author of the wildly popular Harry Potter books and writer/producer of the Fantastic Beasts movies, has come under fire from one British fan, after the author blocked her on Twitter for bringing up the abuse allegations made against Johnny Depp, who plays Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2. The fan, who goes by the Twitter handle @HobbitLindsey, is going viral after she tweeted at J.K. Rowling about how Johnny Depp still gets a role in the Fantastic Beasts movies following allegations that he abused his ex-wife, Amber Heard, while another actor on the original Harry Potter movies, Jamie Waylett, was fired for much less. Here's the original tweet that Lindsey sent to J.K. Rowling below.

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.

Life after Potter: Where are Harry's friends now?

Daniel Radcliffe is back in the West End in The Cripple of Inishmaan, Emma Watson is the cream of La in The Bling Ring and Rupert Grint's first Hollywood turn, in Cbgb, is released later this year. Harry, Hermione and Ron are adjusting to life post-Potter rather well – but what of the hundreds of other child actors who came from open auditions and stage schools to star in the eight films that became the highest-grossing series of all time, earning $7.7bn at the box office? Some, like Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory) and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) have already moved on to other blockbusters. Others, like Jamie Waylett (Vincent Crabbe), jailed for two years for his part in the London riots, have sunk without trace. What is it really like to go from a decade working on the biggest film franchise in the world to finding work as young adults?

My jailed Harry Potter co-star is the victim of a make-believe world | Jessie Cave

Young actors can easily lose touch with the real world. I like to think Jamie Waylett was in the wrong place at the wrong time

Even though I played the character of Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter movies, I can't claim to know my co-actor Jamie Waylett – who was sentenced to jail this week for taking part in last summer's riots – that well. Our paths did not cross during my time filming. I was nonetheless sad to hear of his sentencing, and I worry about what will happen to him now. I don't know how things were going for him post-Potter and pre-riots; the last time I checked, he did not have any new projects on his IMDb page, and due to his jail time he now won't be able to make the grand opening of the Harry Potter studios in Leavesden, Watford. Which is a shame.

Movie News in 60 Seconds: Russell Crowe Will Float Aronofsky’s Ark; Harry Potter Bully Going to Jail; Director Ulu Grosbard, 83, Dies

Will He Float Your Boat?: After more than the usual back and forth, Russell Crowe is now set to take on the titular role in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Cameras should be rolling in the summer on what has been described as a non-traditional epic, in which the biblical character becomes “disillusioned with the way humans have treated their planet.” We're not sure Crowe's Noah will be as angry as Crowe was in Robin Hood (above), but this could be another case in which a familiar name is used to sell a movie, while junking the original story entirely. That could mean downplaying any sort of divine intervention.

'Harry Potter's' Jamie Waylett jailed on 2-year sentence for rioting

  • Pop2it
Back in October, news broke that "Harry Potter" actor Jamie Waylett -- who played the Slytherin bully Vincent Crabbe in six of the hit films -- was arrested for possession of explosives following the Aug. 8 riots in London. Waylett was caught on camera drinking stolen champagne while holding what appeared to be a Molotov cocktail.

He's had trouble with the law before -- in 2009, Waylett was arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession.

"A considerable amount has been said about what happened over those few days," the judge told Waylett according to BBC News. "Anyone watching the footage in this case can only imagine the mayhem that took place on the streets. You chose to go out on to the streets on what was the third day of the violence... You were pictured on a number of occasions with a bottle full of petrol with a rag as a wick. I

Harry Potter Bully Gets a Spell in Jail for Rioting

Jamie Waylett (left) has been a bad boy on screen and off.

The actor who played the Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe in the Harry Potter films has been given a prison sentence in the UK for rioting, according to MSN News.

Jamie Waylett will spend two years ‘doing porridge’ (as it used to be called in my old country) after he was found guilty of taking part in the riots that broke out in various parts of Britain last year. A report in the Guardian newspaper suggested that the so-called UK riots were driven by anger and frustration at Britain’s police force.

Waylett, 22, was found guilty of violent disorder at London’s Wood Green Crown Court on Tuesday. He is said to have been part of a small gang that took part in riots in London on August 8th.

At some point during the riots Waylett was reportedly holding a fire bomb.

That guy who played the Harry Potter bully just got two years in prison for his role in the London riots

Jamie Waylett—known for playing the Hogwarts bully Crabbe in six Harry Potter films—has been handed a two-year prison sentence for his role in last year’s London riots, during which Waylett was caught on a security camera looting and carting around a Molotov cocktail. In all, he ended up getting off rather light: Waylett was facing multiple charges that included possessing explosives, intent to destroy property, and receiving stolen goods, and was even discovered to be cultivating 15 marijuana plants during a subsequent police search of his home—especially egregious, considering he’d previously been arrested for the ...

Expelliarmus! 'Harry Potter' Baddie Jamie Waylett Sentenced To 2 Years In Prison

After he was previously nicked by police for cannabis possession, we wouldn't have been surprised to find "Harry Potter" star Jamie Waylett arrested for having a cocktail in public, but a Molotov cocktail?

TMZ reports that the wayward Waylett, best known as Draco Malfoy's imposing lackey Vincent Crabbe in the first six "Potter" films, is on his way to Azkaban (a.k.a. jail) after being sentenced to two years in a British prison for some very Slytherin-like behavior during last year's London riots.

We reported last October that the husky 22-year-old had been charged with brandishing a homemade explosive while looting a store on August 8th, 2011, which was captured on magical surveillance tape. To add insult to injury, when Waylett was arrested on September 20th police found fifteen cannabis plants in his home.

Though the court found him guilty of violent disorder, he was acquitted charges of intent to
