He’s currently on our TV screens being the moody, troubled cop type in True Detective, but Colin Farrell is looking for something a little more magical for a future job. He’s joined the cast of Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. The Harry Potter spin-off, scripted by J.K. Rowling herself from her short tome, and set to be directed by Potter film veteran David Yates, is set decades before Harry, Hermione, Ron and the rest crossed the threshold of Hogwarts. Our hero here is magizoologist Newt Scamander (Redmayne), who is on a mission to document the creatures filling the wizarding world. On a trip to New York, he meets several characters, including a wizard named Graves, played by Farrell.
