Huge love to @TigressJosh 🖤
We're passionately excited to hear more information about the upcoming film adaption of 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.' In the meantime, we've picked out five actors we think would be great for the role of Newt Scamander.
So, the question on everybody’s lips is “who should play Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?” We’re seriously excited about the project and have pulled together a list of a few actors that we think would suit the role. Sorry Americans, like Harry Potter, this role has to be reserved for the Brits!
Would Jamie Campbell Bower make a good Newt Scamander?

It's official: Affleck's Dark Knight will take on Cavill's Man of Steel. Also, the One Direction movie premieres, The Mortal Instruments are released, and a trio of trailers promise tears, laughs and some spectacular Alaskan scenery...
This week's biggest story is that Ben Affleck will play Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, opposite Henry Cavill's Clark Kent (aka Superman). There's no word on the plot or the title of the new film, which is scheduled for release in the summer of 2015. Word has it that the two superheroes will be at odds with each other, setting up some big battles between them. Read all about the epic prospect here.
On Tuesday night, London hosted the world premiere of the new One Direction movie This Is Us, and the screams of pre-pubescent girls could be heard miles away from Leicester Square as the boy band, their manager Simon Cowell and a range of starry guests turned up to walk the red carpet. The film opens next week and you can look at photos from the event here.
Fans of Cassandra Clare's book series won't mind that this film is overcrowded and chaotic, but the uninitiated will be worn out by what feels like a superficial mash-up of leather-clad stereotypes. Director Zwart (who remade The Karate Kid) certainly creates a lively sense of energy, zipping through each scene as if he's trying to cram every moment in the book into two hours. But as a result, nothing grabs hold.
Our hero is Clary (Collins), a New York teen whose mother (Headey) never told her that she was a Shadowhunter, a half-angel whose job is to protect humanity from demons. But just as she meets goth dreamboat Shadowhunter Jace (Campbell Bower), her mom is kidnapped. So she and her best pal Simon (Sheehan), who has a secret crush on her, travel with Jace into the city's underworld of angels, demons, werewolves and vampires. At the secret Shadowhunter headquarters, she meets leader Hodge (Harris) as well as siblings Alec and Isabelle (Zegers and West). And everyone warns her about the villainous Valentine (Meyers), who has some sort of nefarious master plan involving Clary and her magical cup.
The film is structured as a series of quests, as Clary learns about her supernatural abilities by visiting the City of Bones under a cemetery, breaking into a church to collect a stash of demon-fighting weapons, consulting with a variety of magical creatures, and so on. But these individual sequences never quite connect together into a story with any momentum. It's simply impossible to get involved in these events without being able to identify with the characters, none of whom are properly developed. Obviously, readers of the books won't have this problem, but such a fragmented film is unlikely to draw new fans to the franchise.

Critics have been quick to denounce the latest YA fantasy movie as just another 'Twilight' rehash.
Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has not been treated kindly by critics. The movie adaptation of author Cassandra Clare's six-part young adult fantasy series has been found to have too many similarities to Stephenie Meyer's vampire novels, too soon after Twilight.
The Young Castt Assemble In The Supernatural Action Adventure.
The trailer itself is laden with plotlines that have become clichéd in the fantasy drama. A young girl named Clary (Lily Collins) reaches the end of her teens without finding out she's not a "Mundane" (yep, this one has words for "normal" humans too). In fact, unbeknownst to the wide-eyed yet determined female protagonist, she has the powers of a 'Shadowhunter' - angelic beings whose job it is to rid the world of demons.

Critics and fans aren't impressed by the latest teen novels to be given the Hollywood touch. Should Tinsel Town hold off on the fantasy franchises for now?
Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has been released in movie form and is the latest in a line of teen fiction adaptations to take flight on screen.
The floodgates have been opened now with Hollywood seemingly rushing to turn as many fiction series into movies as possible. With nerd culture suddenly trendy, it's now seen as cool to be openly enraptured by a character or plotline and Comic-Con type events where new releases are trumpeted are bigger than ever.
Lily Collins Plays 'Clary.'
'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' is released in UK and US cinemas today (Wednesday 21 August). Although the movie has been compared to such major franchises as 'Harry Potter' and 'The Twilight Saga', the film has been universally panned by critics.
Fans of supernatural fantasy are likely to be disappointed by The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones if critics' reviews are anything to go by. The film is released in the UK and US today (Wednesday 21st August).

The Mortal Instruments is based on the best-selling series of teen fiction books by Cassandra Clare. According to IMDb, the fantasy movie follows teen Clary Fray (Lily Collins) who discovers she is descended from a race of warriors destined to protect the world from supernatural and evil entities. The film is set in an alternative New York called 'Downworld'. Clary is helped by other warriors, played by Jamie Campbell Bower (The Twilight Saga); Kevin Zegers (Gossip Girl); Jemima West (The Borgias); and Robert Sheehan (Misfits).
Next year looks set to be a seminal year for movies. Forget sequels and the so-called impending apocalypse; 2013 is all about beginnings as we discover the dubious past of 'The Wizard of Oz' in upcoming sequel 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' and how loveable 'Monsters, Inc.' protagonists Sulley and Mike got qualified to become scarers. Move over 'Breaking Dawn', 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'Skyfall', and let's see what 2013 has in store! There have been plenty of dodgy trailers come out for 2013 releases, but here are ten of the trailers we consider worthy of your time!

Clary Fray has been made to live as a normal girl all her life with her mother making sure she never discovers who she truly is. However, when she watches a man getting slaughtered in a nightclub and seemingly is the only one who notices, she starts to suspect that there's more to the world than most people can see. The killer is a man called Jace who reveals himself as a Shadowhunter; a half-angel demon slayer with the power to make himself invisible to the Mundane (humans). Soon, Clary discovers that her mother is in grave danger having been brutally kidnapped from their home and she finds out that her mother is also a Shadowhunter who has been having Clary's memories of unusual happenings blocked all her life. Clary must embrace her true identity and help Jace and the other Shadowhunters in the battle to maintain the balance of good and evil and return her mother back to her.
Here comes the latest teen fantasy movie adaptation in the shape of 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones'. Based on the first book of a series by Cassandra Clare, the movie has been directed by Harald Zwart ('The Karate Kid' , 'Agent Cody Banks') and written by I. Marlene King ('Just My Luck', 'Now and Then') and Jessica Postigo in her screenwriting debut. It is due to hit screens on August 23rd 2013.
Director: Harald Zwart
Not long since the harrowing and almost fatal birth of their daughter Renesmee, newly born vampire Bella Cullen nee Swan and her new husband Edward have even more deadly drama to contend with. With prestigious Italian vampire coven the Volturi led by Vampire Irina accusing the rapidly growing Renesmee of being a demon child, Bella and Edward have no time to enjoy married life and bring her up together like regular parents. When their homelife is threatened by those who wish only to protect themselves, they realise that they must band together a formidable army to fight the Volturi down in a battle if they wish to save the life of their mortal child.
This much-adored vampire love story finally comes to a close in one of the most dramatic conclusions of fantasy fiction ever written. Based on the best-selling novels by Stephenie Meyer, 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2' has been directed by 'Part 1's director Bill Condon ('Dreamgirls', 'Gods and Monsters') with screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg (who has written all of the other screenplays for the blockbuster series) working alongside him. This final instalment is set to become a major box office hit with its release on November 16th 2012.
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Mackenzie Foy, Peter Facinelli, Dakota Fanning, Kellan Lutz, Maggie Grace, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Michael Sheen, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Jamie Campbell Bower, Boo Boo Stewart, Joe Anderson, Billy Burke, Lee Pace, MyAnna Buring, Christopher Heyerdahl, Noel Fisher, Alex Meraz, Rami Malek, Cameron Bright, Mia Maestro, Charlie Bewley, Christian Camargo, Angela Sarafyan, Julia Jones, Daniel Cudmore, Tinsel Korey, Judith Shekoni, Chaske Spencer, Casey LaBow, Kiowa Gordon, Bronson Pelletier, Omar Metwally, Tracey Heggins, Andrea Gabriel, Toni Trucks, Lisa Howard, Patrick Brennan, Tony Bentley, Valorie Curry & JD Pardo.
After their reckless marriage ceremony and the traumatic near-death-experience that was the birth of their daughter Renesmee in 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1', newly turned vampire Bella Swan and Edward Cullen think they have overcome the worst. However, 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' forces them to face a vicious battle with the Volturi after they hear a false claim the rapidly growing Renesmee is an immortal child; the conception of which is outlawed due to fact that immortal children can become out of control and dangerous. Bella and Edward must protect their daughter and themselves from assassination from the Volturi and find a way to prove that Renesmee is not in fact immortal.
Date of birth
22nd November, 1988
