Johnny Depp officially became not-the-star (or an actor at all, really) for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel last week, but now Variety says Ralph Fiennes is in the mix for a big role. Any new major actor entering the Andersonverse is exciting, particularly when it’s Voldemort. However, in sadder news, Angela Lansbury may no longer be in the film. It’s a tumultuous place, that whimsical European hotel.
