Perlman, who has had roles on Sons of Anarchy and Hellboy, is rumored to be playing a goblin in Fantastic Beasts, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Eddie Redmayne is playing the lead role of Newt Scamander, author of Fantastic Beasts and the wizarding world’s leading magi-zoologist. Other members of the cast include Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller, Jon Voight and Samantha Morton. The film is directed by David Yates who has plenty of experience with the wizarding world as he directed four of the seven Harry Potter films.
