kaiserchiefs300x210It’s a job we’d give our back teeth to have – being an extra in the final Harry Potter movie and Ricky Wilson is the lucky sod who got the gig.

According, to The Sun, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Wilson will appear as an extra in The Deathly Hallows Part II.

Although he has no lines, Wilson has been as giddy as a schoolgirl just to be on the set. A source told The Sun, “Ricky’s a huge Potter fan and has been skipping around on set.”

You might be able to spot Wilson in a crowd scene as a team of Voldemort’s Snatchers appear. Wilson might have gotten the gig after Warner Bros. denied The Kaiser Chiefs the chance to play the wizarding band Weird Sisters in The Goblet of Fire.

“He is kept in full make-up away from other extras to try to keep his identity secret, but Daniel and Rupert know who he is. They all get on well.”

Well the secret identity’s gone out the window. The only thing that makes us feel better about the fact that we didn’t get the job is that he didn’t get his own wand. Ha!

StumbleUpon It!
