'Harry Potter' stars spin futures for Draco, Ginny, and Fred at Diagon Alley preview

We always knew Scorpius Malfoy would be up to no good.

The spawn, er, son, of Draco and Astoria Malfoy turns up in the epilogue of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and is briefly glimpsed at the end of 2011’s Deathly Hallows: Part 2. So what might Scorpius be doing now that both series have wrapped?

“He would be back at home pretending to be doing homework and doing bugger all,” says Tom Felton, who played Draco in the films. “I’m sure he’d be doing something mischievous, something he shouldn’t, and following in the footsteps of his father.”

Felton spoke to EW from inside one of his alter ego’s old haunts: Dark Arts shop Borgin and Burkes, which is part of the new Diagon Alley expansion of Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The new section opens July 8. (Fun fact: Felton attended the recent media preview of the expansion with his girlfriend Jade Olivia, who appears as Draco’s wife in the last scene of Deathly Hallows.)

Casting Net: Nic Cage is 'Joe' and Heather Locklear gets 'Scary'. Plus: Alec Baldwin, Tom Felton, Juno Temple, more

 Nicolas Cage will star in Joe, a Southern drama based on the novel by Larry Brown. Not to be confused with this year’s Killer Joe, or Meet Joe Black, or any other famous Joe, Cage will play an ex-con who becomes mentor to a struggling 15-year-old boy in Mississippi. David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) will direct. [Worldview Entertainment]

 Alec Baldwin and Patrick Wilson are set to star in noir thriller Caught Stealing. Baldwin plays a “sadistic cop” to Wilson’s down-on-his-luck former hotshot who gets caught up in a web of very bad things. [THR]

Heather Locklear will take on another mom role to a young starlet — this time as Ashley Tisdale‘s less-than-perfect parental guide through Scary Movie 5. In what’s reportedly a nod to Black Swan, Locklear’s bad mom portrayal will harken to Barbara Hershey’s character in the 2010 Natalie Portman vehicle; Molly Shannon is also set to star in a nod to Winona Ryder’s Black Swan performance. [Deadline]
