WB must offer Oldman role by next week, says agent post #1  quote:



Gary Oldman, who played the part of Sirius Black in the third and fourth Harry Potter movies, has not yet been asked by Warner Brothers to reprise the role of Harry's godfather in Order of the Phoenix. According to Douglas Urbanski of the Douglas Management Group (who represents Oldman), WB has had little desire since the beginning for the actor to return in OOTP, even though Oldman requests small payment. As a result, Urbanski has stated that unless WB offers him the role by next week, Oldman won't consider returning as Black. We'll let you know what WB has to say.

Is his role bigger? In the last movie his face appeared in a fire for a few minutes, that's it.

Yes, Sirius has a MAJOR role in OotP, and if they don't sign Oldman who's going to play him? They can't just NOT have Sirius in this movie. They would RUIN everything.

If he's a big part then they can always recast. Doubt too many HP fans are going just for Oldman... other than me

They recast Dumbledingy and people still went.

-HECK!

They had NO choice but to recast Albus Dumbledore, Heck!
Richard Harris, who was a BRILLIANT choice for the role, passed away.
Michael Gamboa is doing a wonderful job, in his place though.

This is completely different. I wasn't excited, at first, about Gary getting the role of Sirius. I pictured him to be more ruggedly handsome. But, Gary Oldman is a great actor. To replace him... well, that would be a mistake, I think.

Gary Oldman to return in OOTP post #9  quote:

Gary Oldman's long-time manager Doug Urbanski sealed the deal this morning with Harry Potter producer David Heyman: the actor will reprise the role of Sirius Black in the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie.

"I'm so relieved and happy," said Urbanski. "I can't put my mind in the place of the producers, but I would've thought that when they read the book, a call to us would've been very high on their list. Obviously, the character of Sirius Black is key."

Oldman's manager mentioned Oldman had been offered several different film roles in the time it took Warner Bros. to make a decision on the part of Harry's godfather.

Both Gary and manager are delighted with the highly anticipated outcome: "It's a wonderful role. Gary read the script last night, and he read part of it to me on the phone this morning. The end of the story is: Gary's in it. It's a terrific script, and he's so happy to be back."

At last some great news! The movie would not have been the same without him.

Off topic, what is up with them having two completely different looking Flitwicks from 1/2 to 3/4?

I agree... he is Sirius to us now... and to have not signed him would have been really bad. WHY did they wait so long? I'm with Gary's manager... they had to have read the book and know how important Sirius' character is to OotP!
