Some Harry Potter news is traveling the web this weekend with actor Rhys Ifans appearing on "Friday Night with Jonathan Ross" and indicating that he's going to appear in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The actor says it at the 5:55 mark in the clip below. While he doesn't say which role he is playing, SnitchSeeker thinks it will be that of Xenophilius Lovegood, the eccentric father of Luna. If that's true, he could be appearing in both parts of the final story, which will be split into two separate movies.
The website also reports that Jason Isaacs will appearing on Ross's interview show next Friday so expect more Potter talk next weekend. It should be noted early that Isaacs has indicated he's excited about reprising the role of Lucius Malfoy again so he'll likely be on board as well.
