Dan Folger has landed one of the leading rolls in Harry Potter spin-off ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.

According to Deadline, the Fanboys star will play a muggle called Jacob, in the David Yeats-directed film with a screenplay by JK Rowling.

Eddie Redmayne will play protagonist Newt Scamander — a magizoologist who makes a pitstop in New York City during his travels. Jacob serves as Scamander’s rival.

Production on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them begins later this year ahead of a November 18, 2016 release.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
