‘Fantastic Beasts’: 10 Actors Who Could Play Young Dumbledore


Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find them is set to hit theaters very soon and in wake of its release a recent report has stated that Harry Potters’ mentor and ultimate wizard, Dumbledore will appear in the second of this apparent five part series. Dumbledore is one of the greatest and most crucial characters of the series so it’s no surprise that a film that takes place in the same universe would want to include his presence. With the announcement of the character set to make an appearance it’s a great time to look at actors that could potentially take on this important role and bring some of that wisdom and likability to that role. So without further ado here are the top 10 actors we believe could portray the young Dumbledore.

  • bingeit 45

    great choices, i would be happy with either one of them

  • Ashraf Anam

    Hugh Laurie or Jude Law

  • Vegas82

    Why not Trump?

  • Cinephilia Lovegood

    Clive Owen

  • Isobel

    Jared Harris

  • Darthmanwe

    I was also thinking Richard Armitage…

    Until I saw Jude Law…. It oddly makes a lot of sense.

  • I know it’s only a decade off, but it’s hard for me to picture a 30 something year old playing Dumbledore. Dumbledore is 45 during the Fantastic Beasts movie. Ewan is 45 so that’s great. Hugh Jackman is 48 so he works too. It would have to be a “special actor” in his 30’s to play a 45 y/o and beyond in years as the sequels go on.
