Out Of Hogwarts Other Films Featuring the Harry Potter Cast

Sunday, October 28 by Jason Cuthbert


Aside from the J.K. Rowling world of wizards and Hogwarts, the "Harry Potter" cast has accumulated quite a diverse filmography outside of that celebrated series. The "Harry Potter" alumni of Gary Oldman, Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, and Tom Felton have contributed to these remarkable works of art outside of the fantasy realm of sorcery and magic.  


Gary Oldman "The Dark Knight Rises"


Gary Oldman rejoins the last edition of director Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy as Commissioner Gordon for the third time, along with the other mainstays like Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine. It must be quite the resume booster to be a part of both Nolan's Batman series and J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" festivities–two of Warner Brother most lucrative movie properties.  


Tom Felton "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"


In this modern science fiction reprisal of the multi-installment "Planet of the Apes" series, Tom Felton does not go ape with digital fur. Instead, Felton's character Dodge Landon takes obnoxious pride in mistreating the agitated apes as a caretaker in an animal primate shelter of all places. That certainly will not prove to be a brilliant idea.  


Emma Watson "My Week with Marilyn" 


Actress Emma Watson may not be playing the blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) in this biographical drama, but Emma Watson, Hermione Granger from the "Harry Potter" franchise, plays an assistant in the wardrobe department of a Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) production called "The Prince and the Showgirl." Needless to say, Olivier and Monroe do not exactly hit it off famously as co-workers.    


Daniel Radcliffe "The Woman in Black"  


 The old saying: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" takes on an entirely new meaning with this supernatural horror thriller. Mr. Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe plays a traveling lawyer who finds himself arriving in a town terrorized by an extremely agitated ghost who is not acting quite "lady-like."
