He’s currently on our TV screens being the moody, troubled cop type in True Detective, but Colin Farrell is looking for something a little more magical for a future job. He’s joined the cast of Warner Bros.’ **Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them{ =nofollow}.

The **Harry Potter **spin-off, scripted by J.K. Rowling herself from her short tome, and set to be directed by Potter film veteran David Yates, is set decades before Harry, Hermione, Ron and the rest crossed the threshold of Hogwarts. Our hero here is magizoologist Newt Scamander (Redmayne), who is on a mission to document the creatures filling the wizarding world. On a trip to New York, he meets several characters, including a wizard named Graves, played by Farrell.

Fantastic Beasts’ cast already includes Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler and Alison Sudol, and Yates is filling the various other roles ready for shooting this year and early next ahead of a November 18, 2016 release.

Farrell will also be seen in psychic thriller Solace, which arrives on September 25. And he’s part of the cast for Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster, which scored positive reviews at Cannes and lands in the UK on October 16.
