Morgan Freeman as Dumbledore. Obviously a man who has played God multiple times would play Dumbledore.
Cicely Tyson as Professor McGonagall. Twitter kept suggesting Viola Davis but she’s nowhere near old enough.
Cree Summer as Sybill Trelawney. Does Cree act anymore or does she only do voiceovers? Still, who better than Freddie Brooks for this role.
Lynn Whitfield as Dolores Umbridge. Lynn has been equal parts creepy, sweet, and threatening for the past 30 years. Y'all remember A Thin Line… with Martin Lawrence?
Had some fun last night on Twitter casting Harry Potter with Black actors. I realized two things: 1) There are a lot of white people in the Harry Potter universe and 2) There are a limited number of Black actors/actresses with widespread name recognition. Still, this was so randomly fun and I was giggling the whole time. Of course I missed some characters because it’s a huge cast and I wasn’t a Potterhead anyway, but y’all can suggest your own to fill in the blanks.
