Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Warner Bros

Sirius Black crushes young Harry Potter's innocence forever!

See, Gary Oldman played sketchy wizard Black in several Potter flicks, and he still keeps in touch with series star Daniel Radcliffe. During this week's press junket for The Dark Knight, Oldman dished on a recent chat with Radcliffe that, like, totally destroyed the young actor's childlike naïveté.

Oldman doesn't have any scenes in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—being released in two parts starting in 2010—but that doesn't mean he's out of the Hogwarts loop.

"[Daniel] called me up to say that [Deathly Hallows] was going to be in two parts," Oldmen said. "'It's just so dense, so much material, that's why,' he says.

"And I said, 'Uh, no, Daniel. That's not the reason why. Cha-ching!' And he was a little crushed. He said ‘Oh, yeah. I see what you mean.' "

See? Sirius Black really was a Death Eater after all.

The next movie adaptation of the J.K. Rowling saga, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, debuts in November. And that's not about money at all—right, Gary?
