Ralph Fiennes

Fans of Wes Anderson were likely disappointed after hearing that Johnny Depp would not be starring in the Moonrise Kingdom director's next film The Grand Budapest Hotel, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. But another new addition to Anderson's film is also pretty exciting. Variety reports Harry Potter franchise star Ralph Fiennes will be making his debut in Anderson's quirky little world. Fiennes will play a character named M. Gustave, and he's the hotel's concierge who is an expert at keeping his composure. Fiennes joins Jude Law as another actor who hasn't yet worked with Anderson, but one such talent who was already confirmed to have a supporting role in the film has been forced to drop out. Find out who below!

Angela Lansbury was confirmed around the same time Bill Murray revealed his involvement, but now THR's Borys Kit has learned that her commitments to a stage production of Driving Miss Daisy will keep her from Anderson's film. That's a bit of a bummer, but since the actress said it was quite a small role anyway, it shouldn't be too hard to fill. So that means we only have Murray, Law ad Fiennes confirmed for the film, but we're still waiting to hear whether or not rumored names like Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson and Adrien Brody will join up or not. Stay tuned.
