Jude Law will play the younger version of Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts 2.
The British actor, 44, will take on the character created by JK Rowling and played on the big screen by Richard Harris and then Michael Gambon, Warner Bros confirmed on Wednesday.
Director David Yates :
“Jude Law is a phenomenally talented actor whose work I have long admired, and I’m looking forward to finally having the opportunity to work with him. I know he will brilliantly capture all the unexpected facets of Albus Dumbledore as J.K. Rowling reveals this very different time in his life.”
