Oldman Definitely In
Not that any of us were expecting any different (or was that praying?), but Gary Oldman has just been confirmed that he will in fact, be returning as Sirius Black. Oldman's agent has just recently let out a release about the fact the other morning.
Doub Urbanski had this to say "Gary Oldman is now set to play Sirius Black in the Order of the Phoenix. A deal was concluded this morning,"
"I'm so relieved and happy," he added. "I can't put my mind in the place of the producers, but I would've thought that when they read the book, a call to us would've been very high on their list. Obviously, the character of Sirius Black is key."
Urbanski said he was baffled by the months-long silence from Warner Bros. There were other jobs offered to Oldman, and he was very close to taking one. "Since they had no option for Gary on this film, he was a free agent. Last week, we told them that Gary had another movie, and it was just a question of doing a deal," he said."It's a wonderful role," Urbanski continued. "Gary read the script last night, and he read part of it to me on the phone this morning. The end of the story is: Gary's in it. It's a terrific script, and he's so happy to be back."
