Comicpalooza has announced a new bunch of guests for its Memorial Day Weekend event, and the biggest news is that they include some Harry Potter stars!!

Well, co-stars.

Actually, let's just say they're characters. But they do show up in every film!!

The Weasley Brothers are coming to town!!

It's not quite Harry. Or Hermione. Or Hagrid, for that matter. But there are two of them, at least, so there's that.

Fred and George are played by James and Oliver Phelps, and don't ask us which one plays which.

We've actually always felt the films shortchanged them as opposed to the books, but as comic relief they're probably the first to get cut in screenplays or the editing room.

Anyway, be sure to ask them something about Quidditch, because we're sure they've never been asked about it!

Just don't ask them about their film and TV roles outside the Potter series, because it will be a short conversation.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
