Last week J.K. Rowling announced she would be writing a script for Warner Bros. inspired by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, centered around the textbook’s author Newt Scamander. We don’t know much about him yet, but that hasn’t stopped the internet from deciding who should play him.
We DO know he’s a Hufflepuff, and that means whoever does play him has to absolutely rock the badger black & yellow. Here are our picks.
12. Nathan Stewart-Jarrett
What you’ve seen him in: Misfits
Why he’d be the perfect Newt: Aside from how dapper he makes that cable-knit sweater look? He was born in Wandsworth, London. Wandsworth. I mean, c’mon.
11. Dev Patel
What you’ve seen him in: Slumdog Millionaire, Skins
Why he’d be the perfect Newt: Yes, Regis, Dev is our final answer.
10. Colin Morgan
What you’ve seen him in: Merlin
Why he’d be the perfect Newt: Not only is he totally working that yellow wall, he already has the appropriate wizardry experience.
8. Lee Pace
What you’ve seen him in: Pushing Daisies, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Why he’d be the perfect Newt: He looks practically prefect in every way.
6. Harry Styles
What you’ve seen him in: One Direction: This Is Us in 3D
Why he’d be the perfect Newt: Everyone else in the room can see it, everyone else but you.
5. Wiz Khalifa
What you’ve seen him in: The official music video for “Black and Yellow”
Why he’d be the perfect Newt: You know what it is. Blackandyellowblackandyellowblackandyellow.
