Actor Leslie Phillips has been talking, briefly, about his coming gig as the voice of the Sorting Hat, in the coming HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE... and how it will be depicted.

While talking to Empire Online, Phillips revealed, "I've already recorded my lines. It's absolutely fantastic, you have the hat and then it becomes my face - it's all special effects, you know."

He adds, "I had a lovely time. I have an option to appear in the second movie, which would be great."
