Did any of you even notice that the big screen version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix starts shooting, like, next month? Are you as excited as I am? Are you doing cartwheels in your living room right now? At this exact moment? Did you break anything? Well, you better move some furniture because we've got some juicy casting news for the film.

According to CBBC Newsround, George Harris has been cast as Kingsley Shacklebolt, a Dark Wizard catcher who works for the Ministry of Magic. The character is also a member of the Order of the Phoenix, a group put in place to battle the evil Lord Voldemort. Harris has been around for awhile now, but hasn't exactly blown up on the radar even though he's landed parts in films like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Black Hawk Down.

Also cast for Phoenix is newbie Robbie Jarvis (So new I'm not even sure of his IMDB credit, if he even has one) as a young James Potter. Apparently, he's a stage actor who has performed a bunch of roles with the East Side Theater Company. The teenage actor will take on the part of Papa Potter and shows up in the book after Harry enters Potion Master Professor Snape's (long name if you ask me) memory. I apologize ahead of time if I don't seem like a Harry Potter expert here, but I - cough - never read the book. Kill me now!
