Things are about to get a whole lot more magical for Colin Farrell!
The True Detective star will be joining the cast of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed today.
Farrell will play Graves, a wizard that main character Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) encounters in New York. We don’t know anything else about his role at the time, but with a name as ominous as Graves, there might be a chance that Farrell will be playing an antagonist in the film.
The Irish actor will join the already stellar cast of Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller and Alison Sudol.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a brand new story from J.K. Rowling that takes places 70 years before the events in Harry Potter, but it isn’t a prequel. The story follows a young wizard named Newt Scamander on his journey to find, well, magical beasts!
The film is currently scheduled for a November 2016 release.

It’s so difficult not to love J.K. Rowling. She’s the woman who brought us freakin’ Harry Potter after all, the series that pretty much defined the childhood of every millennial out there (including my own).
But beyond pioneering the world of wizarding, Rowling has also become a leading voice on Twitter, completely slaying people engaging in social injustice and giving people everywhere a reason to love her beyond her literary prowess.
So, without further adieu, here our some of our favorite tweets from this lovely, lovely lady:

That time she proved that she knows the internet very well:
When she apologized for killing off George’s brother:
…and proved that fictional tragedy even affects the author:
When she showed us all how modest she really is:
When she shared her other possible career choices:
And finally, that time, and every time since, that J.K. Rowling has made her fans feel like pure magic:
