If there's one thing movies could use a whole lot more of, it's "Harry Potter" actors popping up in unexpected places.
Daniel Radcliffe in a remake of "The Graduate"? Awesome. Rupert Grint in a stage version of "Child's Play"? Why not? David Tennant (Barty Crouch) popping up as a recurrring character in our dreams? Done and done.
It seems we're not the only ones who want a little more Brit in our bonnet. Helen McCrory, best known for her role as Draco's mom Narcissa Malfoy in the "Harry Potter" series, has joined the cast of the upcoming James Bond movie "Skyfall." This isn't McCrory's first time working with Daniel Craig – the actors shared the screen in Baillie Walsh's 2008 film "Flashbacks of a Fool."
Empire Online reports that in addition to McCrory, Swedish actor Ola Rapace, ex-hubby of "The Girl with Dragon Tattoo" star Noomi Rapace, will also star in the 23rd installment of the Bond series.
The film's title was announced just last week, as were members of the primary cast, which stars Javier Bardem, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and everyone's favorite sassy septuagenarian, Judi Dench. Daniel Craig will head up the cast as the Speedo-wearing 007.
The Sam Mendes-directed movie began shooting in London last week and is expected to hit theaters on Oct. 26, 2012.
