'Fantastic Beasts 2': Jessica Williams to play Professor Hicks

'Fantastic Beasts 2': Jessica Williams to play Professor Hicks

Williams was announced as part of the cast back in October.

The two women, who are also friends, announced on Twitter and in an Instagram video that the host of podcast and HBO comedy special "2 Dope Queens" would be playing a character named Professor Eulalie "Lally" Hicks in "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald", which hits theaters November 16, 2018.

This delightful little fellow is likely to be one of many different beasts that will be fantastically represented in LEGO brick form, given the subject matter of the new films.

"We've chose to tell you the name of my character for Fantastic Beasts", Williams said in the clip. Based on Rowling's comment that The Crimes of Grindelwald only offers a "hint" of Lally, it sounds like Ilvermony itself probably won't appear onscreen until the third Fantastic Beasts movie, at the earliest.

Rowling confirmed the news on Twitter, adding Hicks hails from Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardy. In addition to posting a photo of herself with Williams to her Twitter account (see the image below), Rowling revealed that Williams is playing Professor Eulalie "Lally" Hicks of Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in The Crimes of Grindelwald. The fictional school is located in MA. "Her true glory is revealed in FB3", she posted.

The second film in the franchise, "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" will see the return of Eddie Redmayne as magic zoologist Newt Scamander on a quest to stop the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). She co-hosts the podcast 2 Dope Queens, which was adapted as a four-part HBO special this year.
