chromatic casting: the hp remix

So the chromatic casting meme made it to Racialicious, and I was in need of distraction earlier, and, well. :D

HERMIONE GRANGER - Yasmin Paige

(yeah, okay, so in my head Clyde & Maria = Harry & Hermione, what of it? *g*)


RON WEASLEY - Reggie Yates


GINNY WEASLEY - Larissa Wilson


LUNA LOVEGOOD - Angel Coulby


LAVENDER BROWN - Anjli Mohindra


ALICIA SPINNET - Cush Jumbo


PANSY PARKINSON - Parminder Nagra


ALBUS DUMBLEDORE - Ben Kingsley


ARTHUR WEASLEY - Paterson Joseph

This is wonderful. I had never considered how wonderful it would be to have Parminder Nagra as Pansy, and now it makes perfect sense. I love Pansy and I adore Parminder Nagra. Methinks I may have an addition to my obsession.

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. ALL OF THIS. I've been loving all of these chromatic casting posts, but ANGEL AS LUNA (!!!) and CHIWETEL EJIOFOR AS JAMES and BEN KINGSLEY AS DUMBLEDORE and I could keep going but this is just so perfect.

This is so awesome! It's making me ship Luna/Pansy harder than ever, so if I'm ever found writing Angel/Parminder RPF then it will be entirely your fault ;-)

Oh my god, this Hermione looks EXACTLY like I imagined her before the movies came out. And this Lily and James = OMG AWESOME. (I stared at Ben Kingsley for Dumbledore for a long time, all confused, before I remembered that Dumbledore only looks skeevy in my head. Kingsley is perfect for the, you know, more traditional, non-skeevy Dumbledore.)

I am so in love with your casting! Ben Kingsley would be freaky good as Dumbledore, and your Marauders are to die for (Naveen Andrews might make me like Sirius Black impossibly more than Gary Oldman. I have a deep, not entirely rational dislike of book!Sirius (the bullying of Snape hits triggers for me like whoa), but Oldman's performance manages to overcome that. Naveen Andrews, though... *swoon*) Also, mmmmm, yes, Malfoys. *happy sigh*

I would love to see you make suggestions for Snape and Draco.

This post is an excellent excuse for pictures of gorgeous people whom I adore. Yay!

I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS POST. If I started listing my favourites I'd probably be repeating everything....but omg, Colin Salmon and Meera Syal would be perfect for Remus and Molly. ♥

[identity profile] bornofstars.livejournal.com 2010-01-26 01:12 am (UTC)(link)
What a brilliant idea. Angel Coulby as Luna = inspired, and hee, Ben Kingsley as Dumebledore. Gandhi and Dumblefore are the same person, basically.

*flails happily at you* Oh yes, very much so. (The high level of attractiveness contained in this listing is wonderful)

I am ridiculously fond of Paterson Joseph and Meera Syal as Arthur and Molly Weasley and Chiwetel Ejiofor and Lenora Crichlow as James and Lily Potter oh and Colin Salmon would be an excellent Remus. *nods* (And I utterly see the Clyde and Maria = Harry and Hermione thing)

In my head I always pictured Kingsley Shacklebot looking like Chiwetel Ejiofar so I was always sad they cast someone else.

THAT WAS JAWESOME. ALL OF IT. <3

But, wait, isn't Yasmin Paige white though? It is a genuine question of mine, I'm rather curious now about how our notions of race differ from one place to another.

ANGEL AS LUNA <3

And Ginny/Luna and James/Lily and REMUS/TONKS, LOOKIT.

I freaking love this!

So when I first started reading the HP books, even though I was half-grown at the time and should not have been so fanciful, I imagined Hermione to be brown with bushy hair like me. Because it said so in the books, and all. And then the movies came out and she looked like Emma Watson.

And I mean, Emma is lovely. But, y'know.

AW AW AW! You had me at Paterson Joseph, but then, omg, Naveen and Freema at the end there! I am now honestly stymied as to why Naveen Andrews WASN'T cast as Sirius Black, homg. And Adrian Lester as Lucius Malfoy! What! Plus Yasmin Paige is, like, inspired for Hermione . . . she does have just the right eyeroll, doesn't she?

oh how I wish I could have these films! This is the thing about these chromatic recastings . . . they make me so happy, and then they make me so sad.

OH HELLO THERE CHIWETEL EJIOFOR my only problem with this is that I'd want him to have a bigger part than James, but then I don't know what part that would be and anyway this whole picspam is seriously delicious. Thank you!

This is great. There are so many good (and good-looking, sigh) choices here.

I just wish I could see all these actors together in a big multi-film epic of any kind.
