Post Dan Fogler talks 'Fantastic Beasts' casting, NY accent, film's era in early 1920s

Dan Fogler, who was confirmed to play Muggle Jacob in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series, recently discussed at length how he found out about the role (during Comic Con), the specific time era and location of the first feature, and a teaser about his character's accent.

Fogler mentioned that he will have an early 1920s-era New York/Brooklyn accent of sorts, and that he will be in the entirety of the series, as far as he is aware.

Do note that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has so far written only the screenplay for the first Fantastic Beasts movie, releasing in November 2016, and not the sequels yet.

SnitchSeeker has written up the transcript for Fogler's interview, below, for those who can not view the video.

Comic Vine: How are you doing?
Dan Fogler:
A little hung over.

Uh oh. First of all, congratulations on the big news. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. Do you know where to find them?
Dan Fogler:
Trying to find some reverse Crazy Glue, ‘cause apparently I stuck my hand to my face last night. I’m kidding. (laughs) Yeah, man. Fantastic Beasts. I mean, I had all sorts of stuff lined up that we COULD talk about, but that’s gotten just smashed to the side by Fantastic Beasts. (laughs) That’s basically what I’ll be doing for a little while.

When we talked earlier, you said that you’re going to have an accent.
Dan Fogler:
Yeah, I think it’s gonna be somewhere in the Lou Costello 1920s early Brooklyn … “How’re ya goils doin?” I dunno. Something like that, I’m imagining. It takes place in the early ‘20s in New York. It’s a very fun era.

You remember it clearly?
Dan Fogler:
I feel like I definitely have a past life that was there. I know how to do the Charleston pretty good. I’m not gonna do it. I’ll ralph all over you. “I had a piece of Dan Fogler vomit right here (points to face) and I’m never gonna wash it.” (laughs)

You didn’t know that news was going to break this weekend. Or did you?
Dan Fogler:
No idea. I was walking up here, hauling my boxes of comic books, schlepping, sweating, and then my manager calls me up and was like, “Oh, by the way, now you’re part of this franchise.”

I think I saw you when you were on that phone conversation.
Dan Fogler:
You saw me?

I ran into you outside yesterday. I didn’t want to interrupt you. You were happy.
Dan Fogler:
I was like weeping. I’m in shock. I’m in excess of excitement right now.

You got anything else you want to talk about, or are those [projects] on hold for now?
Dan Fogler:
Well, I make an appearance in the show Billions. We’ll see. I was supposed to have a recurring character. Very exciting … Paul Giamatti - for Showtime. It’s kind of gotten waylaid but we’ll see if I’m able to jump back on board for that. And there’s all sorts of fun movies percolating … we’ll see what happens. This Fantastic Beasts thing has definitely changed the course of my career.

Fogler was at Comic Con this weekend to promote a couple of comic books he had helped create, called Brooklyn Gladiator and Moon Lake.

Woah he's seems like his Jacob is going to be really annoying judging by that accent. It's gonna be easy for me to dislike him if he is indeed the villan. Could be like another Gilderoy!
