We'd totally be a part of Dumbledore's Army, any day of the week!

Michael Gambon (or Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore from the Harry Potter franchise) apparated on the set of the TV adaptation of J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy this past weekend!

Or maybe he used a Portkey! We'll never know!

In this movie, Michael plays the part of Howard Mollison, Pagford delicatessen's fictional proprietor! Sure, it's a notch or two down from being Headmaster, but oh well!

Filming is taking place in the Cotswold town of Northleach in the good ole United Kingdom!

We cannot wait to see his magical performance!

jk rowling bringing back dumbledore actor for casual vacancy series on hbo

Potterheads, rejoice! Dumbledore lives!!!

Michael Gambon, the actor who played the iconic Professor from the Prisoner of Azkaban until the very end, has been cast in J.K. Rowling's upcoming HBO mini-series The Casual Vacancy.

Which is SO EXCITING!

The former Harry Potter actor is set to play Howard Mollison, who fans know as the owner of the Pagford deli!

Other cast members announced include Rory Kinnear, Julia McKenzie, Kelley Hawes, Monica Dolan, and Abigail Lawrie!

While the rest of the casting news will be announced at a later date, filming is set to begin on July 7th in the South West of England!

So, alright… Dumbledore doesn't exactly LIVE, but it's certainly exciting to see him in action again in another of J.K.'s novels coming to life!

We can't WAIT to watch!!

J.K. Rowling Chats Up Jon Stewart About Welfare And The Casual Vacancy

Filed under: Jon StewartTV NewsPolitikHarry PotterBookz

J.K. Rowling is a welfare success story.

She lived on government assistance for years as a single mother before Harry Potter made her a billionaire and she seems pretty damn grateful for those benefits.

In fact, the successful author revealed (above) she pays "a lot of tax" on her fortune to the English government, but doesn't mind! She actually feels indebted to the system that provided for her and her child when nobody else would and told Jon Stewart:
