The BBC is reporting that Harry Potter actors Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Jim Broadbent (Professor Slughorn) and David Tennant (Barty Crouch, Jr.) have joined the voice cast of "Postman Pat: The Movie - You Know You're the One."

"Postman Pat: The Movie" will be based on the popular British cartoon which recently celebrated 30 years. The movie will see Postman Pat "lured away from his village by the chance to find fame on a national talent show."

In a statement about the casting, Rupert Grint said:

"Postman Pat is one of those British symbols, I suppose - you are totally familiar with him and his cat Jess, even if you have never watched the series.
"How exciting to be part of the Postman Pat heritage."
The film is expected to have a 3D release in early 2013.

Imagine 20 years from now or more the stories these folks will share of life as they encounter each other while acting.

so… people haven’t heard of this so they’re not jazzed rupert’s doing it….ha. i’ve never heard of it myself, though i love british tv and movies, but from what the cast is saying and after a quick google search, it’s seems pretty iconic. i really want to see these young actors foster careers both in the uk’s film industry and the US – hollywood and independent alike. and right now, i’m just glad to see them signing onto projects – the more they do, the better they’ll be. there is nothing that says their careers can’t get bigger and better after potter.
