Whenever I see or 'talk' to Professor Greyrose, I am always reminded of Angela Lansbury.

I think you should be the one who acts her. (Yes you the one that dose the voice for her) because it would be cool to have the voice for the professor.

Well I know we can get a bunch of Harry Potter actors/actresses to do the job well.

Living actress, the choice would have to be Angela Lansbury, but Judi Dench could do it too. If you've only seen her in the Bond movies, you're missing a lot.
Any actress? Living or dead? Easy; Billie Burke!

I honestly think that the actress who played as Professor Umbridge in Harry Potter would be most suitable for the role of Lydia Greyrose.

Why would you say that? Prof. Umbridge was a person who supressed magic at Hogwarts, cause she was one of the minion of Voldamort (don't get picky).

Not to pick on Headmistress Crisp, but Prof. Umbridge would be more suited for Wysteria, since she wanted people to be vulnerable to Voldamort.

P.S.,

For Prof. Falmea, I would suggest Carol Kane from Scrooged
For Prof. Greyrose, I would suggest Julie Andrews from The Sound of Music
For Prof. Balestrom, I would suggest the original guy that had the Oompah Loompahs

It doesn't matter what she did in HP, all that matters is the voice of the actress and the personality/appearance of the actress. Which is why I chose her, comparing what someone did in another movie has absolutely nothing to do with casting for a different movie.

LOL yes, well it depends of we are talking about the Lydia Greyrose in the game, or the one on this message board. They come across as very different personalities.

For Halston Balestrom I would choose Will Ferrel (as strange as it sounds).
He has that really upbeat funny kind of tone.

I would make Halston Balestrom animated but a little bit larger than he is in-game. This is because it would seem like characters are not being serious and talking to a puppet (like some TV shows for toddlers) but rather their professor. I would use the same voice actor as is currently being used.

September 26. I would cast the actor Eric Johnson for Cyrus Drake. Cyrus can be tough, loving, rude, and proud all at the same time( More tough, at lower levels though), I think Eric Johnson can make it work.

I think Cyrus Drake should be cast as That guy in Harry Potter with the black hair and and black cape who was set on fire at the game in the first movie. Sorry forgot his name.

Dworgyn could be... OH MY GOSH!!!

Ben Kingsley would be perfect! He's bald and lumpy, and he's kinda short enough too.

Wow, missed this until just now.

Shelley Winters from the middle part of her career would have made a great Greyrose.
Halston Balestrom reminds me of MacGyver in a sense. I don't think Neil Patrick Harris is jovial enough for the job. Pass, still thinking about this one.
Salma Hayek as Dalia Falmea
Patrick Stewart as Cyrus Drake (pretty much universally mentioned by everyone already)
Maggie Cheung as Moolinda Wu
Marty Feldman as Dworgyn (or for a more serious Dworgyn, Peter Falk)

And a very young Keanu Reeves as Malorn Ashthorn.

If Morgan Freeman can make his voice a higher pitch, he could be perfect for the role of Alhazred
