- Harry Potter buys his wand at Ollivander's Wand Emporium
- Mr. Ollivander is played by John Hurt
- John Hurt played The Storyteller, in a short lived TV series of the same name, a Jim Henson Production
- Jim Henson Productions also did all of the creature effects for the Sci-Fi series Farscape
- Ben Browder, star of Farscape, is now one of the main characters on Stargate SG-1
(last night's episode was absolutely hilarious, but that's another post)
Ok, so maybe it's a little unfair, since many great actors have played roles in the Harry Potter movies, but hey, I needed to entertain myself while I try to go back to sleep. IMDB also makes this a whole lot easier, and the list of shows does tell something about what I like to watch on TV.
