The upcoming Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is getting ready to cast the two actresses who will star alongside Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne. One of the names being considered, reports Vanity Fair, is Kate Upton.

According to multiple sources, Saoirse Ronan, Dakota Fanning, Lili Simmons, and Alison Sudol are up for Tina while Kate Upton, Katherine Waterston, and Elizabeth Debicki are testing for Queenie.

Though she wouldn’t be playing Tina, Redmayne’s love interest, Second Lead Female Actor In a Harry Potter Movie would be a surprising role for Upton. I guess the film’s producers saw her work in those Game of War commercials and found her more than capable of tackling the fantasy genre.

Another mark in Upton’s favor? I have no idea who Katherine Waterston and Elizabeth Debicki are.
