Bill Nighy got his wish: he has officially been cast in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as none other than the Minister of Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour. Why the Minister wasn't written into Half-Blood Prince I'll never understand, especially considering he actually interacts with Harry in that one, and technically isn't in Deathly Hallows at all other than a few mentions. But, whatever. I need to separate the movies from the books and just try to enjoy them for what they are. And I do really like Bill Nighy.
