Agents for Jim McManus have confirmed to Leaky today that the actor will play Aberforth Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. This also confirms for the first time that the role will be in the film; in addition to being Dumbledore's brother and once charged with using inappropriate charms on a goat, in book five Aberforth was the unnamed bartender (who smelled of goats) in the Hogs Head pub. He witnesses the first meeting of Dumbledore's Army. With Mundungus absent from this film (at least as of yet), he will be the only one to do so onscreen.
Jim McManus has a hearty stage, film and television career spanning back to the 1960s, including roles in Tipping the Velvet in 2002 and Lawless Heart in 2001. He was also in Buddy's Song in 1990 and Dr. Who in 1977. His stage career has included work with English Theatre of Rome and The Godot Company, and has included roles in Pinocchio and The Boys from Syracuse.
