Dan Fogler Cast As Jacob in FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM villain Jacob will be portrayed by Dan Fogler!

Actor Dan Fogler has won the coveted role of Jacob, New Scamander’s nemesis in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them!

According to Deadline, Jacob is a non-magical being, but earlier reports indicate that Jacob will be a rival of Newt (Eddie Redmayne) in the Magical Creatures field. Given that Fantastic Beasts is a spin-off of the Harry Potter universe, this would probably make Jacob a squib– a child born into a wizarding family that never develops magical powers of their own.

Dan Fogler has had numerous supporting and guest roles in his 15 year career, usually of a comedic persuasion. Recently, he’s made appearances on The Good Wife and Secrets and Lies. Rumor has it that he beat out Josh Gad and John Krasinski for the role.

This announcement rounds out the main cast for the movie. Fogler joins Redmayne, Katherine Waterson as Tina, Alison Sudol as Queenie, and Ezra Miller as Kredan.

Fantastic Beasts is due out on November 18, 2016.
