randoms from Prisoner Of Azkaban

Ian McKellen turned down the role of Dumbledore. Having appeared as Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings, he said, "I had enough trouble living up to one legend. Two would be too much to hope for."

In order to acquaint himself with his three lead actors, director Alfonso CuarĂ³n had each of them write an essay about their characters, from a first-person point of view. Emma Watson, in true Hermione fashion, went a little overboard and wrote a 16-page essay. Daniel Radcliffe wrote a simple one-page summary, and Rupert Grint never even turned his in.

HAHA. i like IanMcKellen's comment. very true.
and Rupert Grint.. i think that actually proved his point na. i mean, he was really being Ron.
