    I remember Jim Broadbent as Patrick Barlow's straight man.

      What about Ian McShane? (Don't know the answer but I'm guessing not, as he's based in the States).
      Ian McShane played Ron in the last two films. His range is much more than the critics would have you believe.

        Eventually, he managed to pluck up the courage to go over and say something to Mr Berkoff,

        "Mr Berkoff, I'm a big fan of your work"
        "Why thankyou very much."
        "I especially liked you in Rambo III."
        Reeeeeaaaaaalllly? Cos that is absolutely the perfect person to do that to which makes the story too perfect.

        "...soft, fleshy bodies of the village elders..."

        You say all this about the actors, but someone I used to know worked on some of those bloody films. I don't even know anyone who was in The Bill (though I do know one EastEnders, so that's Fashy Potter 1 Stenders 1).

          I think his star was rising just as the Harry Potter movies were winding down.

            I think a more difficult task would be to find someone who hasn't been in one of the Harry Potter, LOTR/ Hobbit or Game of Thrones franchise's

                Patrick Stewart comes to mind (while suggesting an additional test)

                    The oily ones I can think of are Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Ben Kingsley, Penelope Wilton and Joss Ackland's Spunky Backback.

                          Ian McShane was in a few episodes of Game of Thrones. He annoyed fans by plot spoiling during an interview but was not bothered by this at all, piquing their ire further by saying it was all a load of "tits and dragons" anyway.

                            That's a bit harsh, Stumpy.

                              I was convinced I'd seen all the Harry Potter films, but my daughter (Potter obsessive) informs me that all the clips I can recount are from the same film, which I must have seen multiple times. The one with Ian Brown sat in the pub.

                                Ah yes, Professor Picard (and his good friend, Erik Gandalf).
