Paddy Pimblett lands new role in upcoming JK Rowling movie.. Paddy Potter and the scouser stone

UFC lightweight Paddy Pimblett fresh off a submission victory at UFC Fight Night 204 has parlayed the win to a leading role in the world of Harry Potter. ‘The Baddy’ will play a version of himself in the film which will start shooting this Spring and take place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Of note, Pimblett has signed a three picture deal for the franchise that would allow him full creative say on his character including the use of scouser slang. “I used to fight in me school halls with fists, I’d put the snide in the ozzy, even a bifter out on his neck, but now… I have a wand!” Pimblett was also excited to be the “protection” for his on-screen family member; “Expecto Patronum! Consider ME a solution to the Potter bully problem.” Paddy the Baddy proclaimed.

There was no confirmation which “House” Pimblett would belong to but one insider has her preference; “Paddy is a Hufflepuff, through and through, he’s sweet, honest and dedicated” said the Scouser Stone producer. While others online believe Pimblett to be shrewd not unlike that of Ravenclaw or even Slytherin.

Paddy will be making ‘twelve, twelve, and twelve’ for the films thanks to his manager Graham Boylan, who negotiated the deal. UFC president Dana White is also expected to see a percentage of that gross.
