10 Oct – Upcoming fantasy trilogy "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" has added "Hellboy" star Ron Perlman to its cast.
Perlman is set to play a goblin in the "Harry Potter" spinoff , according to The Hollywood Reporter, though no further details were revealed.
Perlman will be joining a cast that includes Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Katherine Waterston (Tina), Alison Sudol (Queenie), Colin Farrell (Graves), Ezra Miller (Credence), Dan Fogler (Jacob), Jenn Murray (Chastity), Faith Wood-Blagrove (Modesty) and Samantha Morton (Mary Lou), as well as the recently announced Gemma Chan, Carmen Ejogo and Jon Voight.
The trilogy follows Newt Scamander, who travels to find and document magical creatures, putting it all in a book which eventually becomes the Hogwarts textbook used by Harry, Hermione and Ron about 80 years later in the "Harry Potter" series.
David Yates, who directed the final four "Harry Potter" movies, helms the project while author J.K. Rowling pens the screenplay herself.
Filming on the movie has started back in August at Burbank, California.
Prior to joining the trilogy, Perlman's most recent movies include Roland Emmerich's "Stonewall" and Antoine Bardou-Jacquet's "Moonwalkers".
"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is expected to be found in cinemas in November 2016.
