Fans shake, rattle and roll at Australia's Elvis festival

  Fans shake, rattle and roll at Australia's Elvis festival Hundreds of hip-shaking and wig-wearing Elvis Presley lookalikes and fans of the late King of Rock and Roll took trains from Sydney bound for Australia's annual Elvis festival on Thursday. Strains of "I Was The One" rang out along the platforms of Sydney's Central railway terminal as jumpsuited, coiffed and guitar-wielding passengers boarded the "Elvis Express" and "Blue Suede Express" bound for the country town of Parkes, some 357 km (222 miles) westward.

We’ll find out if the controversy affects the movie’s reception when Fantastic Beasts : The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters on November 16. What do you think about Daniel Radcliffe ’s thoughts on the Johnny Depp casting controversy?

Daniel Radcliffe is breaking his silence about Johnny Depp ’s casting in the Harry Potter spin-off film Fantastic Beasts : The Crimes of Grindelwald. Following Amber Heard’s abuse allegations against her ex-husband Depp

Daniel Radcliffe is not part of the "Fantastic Beasts" movies, which are prequels to "Harry Potter," but he did tie the recent Johnny Depp debate to the Potter films.

As you probably know, there's been chatter in the HP fandom about the casting of Johnny Depp as dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. He'll obviously have a major role in the second film, since it's called "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald." Director David Yates and J.K. Rowling both weighed in with support of Johnny Depp, although they couldn't go into detail due to "agreements" between Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard. Heard had accused Depp of abuse, but he was never arrested or charged.

Entertainment Weekly asked Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter, about the controversy. He made a comparison to Jamie Waylett, who played Crabbe in six "Harry Potter" films and was fired before the two "Deathly Hallows" movies ended the series. His firing was tied to his arrest for growing 10 marijuana plants in his mother's home in 2009. He pleaded guilty.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Daniel Radcliffe offered his thoughts on Johnny Depp 's controversial casting in the forthcoming Harry Potter series spin-off, Fantastic Beasts : The Crimes of Grindelwald.

"It's a very hard thing for me [since the producers] gave me a great start in life and an amazing job. [However] I can see why people are frustrated with the response that they were given from that ... I'm not saying anything that anybody hasn't already said — and this is a weird analogy to draw — [but] in the NFL, there are lots of players arrested for smoking weed and there is other people's behavior that goes way beyond that and it's tolerated because they're very famous players. I suppose the thing I was struck by was, we did have a guy who was reprimanded for weed on the [original Potter] film, essentially, so obviously what Johnny has been accused of is much greater than that."

It is apples to oranges to compare a guy who admitted to a crime to a guy who was accused of a crime but never charged. However, there's a good point in there about the power of the "very famous" when it comes to getting off the hook. Don't be naive enough to think superstar money isn't a huge help in keeping stars' legal woes under wraps. That's what the lawyers are paid big bucks for.

Famechon statue to be unveiled as great Australian champion honoured

  Famechon statue to be unveiled as great Australian champion honoured A boxer has to have physical strength, fitness, courage, skill, speed, toughness and the mental capacity to take punishment and carry on when every sinew and nerve in his body is telling him to stop. Triumphing over a high-class opponent is difficult even in front of your own fans: just ask Jeff Horn, the most recent Australian champion, who pulled off that shock victory over Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao in Brisbane last  July.Horn will find out just how difficult things can be when he fights Terence Crawford in New York in April for the WBO Welterweight title, a match confirmed on Friday.

Harry Potter fans around the world will have to come to terms with Johnny Depp as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts , and Daniel Radcliffe himself is among them. “It’s a very hard thing for me,” Radcliffe told Entertainment Weekly.

Daniel Radcliffe wades into an uncomfortable subject regarding Johnny Depp ’s alleged domestic abuse and producers’ defense of him. Author J.K. Rowling has admitted that the possibility of recasting Johnny Depp in Fantastic Beasts : The Crimes of Grindelwald came up following

Anyway, everyone seems to have strong feelings on the subject but the truth is we have no idea what went on in the Depp-Heard marriage. If you support him, you don't really know what he did. If you support her, you don't really know what she did. But the debate will probably continue to rage until "The Crimes of Grindelwald" opens in theaters November 16. For the record, we're perfectly happy keeping the conversation on young Dumbledore and ignoring Grindelwald entirely.
