Dumbledore In Pagford: Michael Gambon Cast In J.K. Rowling’s THE CASUAL VACANCY Miniseries

Michael Gambon is working on a J.K. Rowling project once again! He is one of several actors that was announced to star in BBC and HBO’s miniseries adaptation of THE CASUAL VACANCY. Gambon will take on a much less lovable role this time as an elitist local government leader who plays a major part in the class warfare consuming the small town.
