Bill Nighy is Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

It wasn’t long ago that Bill Nighy was first rumored to be in the last two Harry Potter films as new Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour. Then he confirmed the role and now, as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opens (/Film).

I love Bill Nighy and this is a brilliant casting.  Oddly enough, he is the face that popped up in my mind while I was reading the book!

Rufus Scrimgeour reminded me of Victor from the Underworld Saga, and Nighy did a brilliant job in those films.  I cannot wait to see him in Deathly Hallows.
