Which Harry Potter Role Did Joseph Morgan Audition For?

Not only is Originals star Joseph Morgan an avid reader, but he made a point to make his first acting audition for a role in a Harry Potter film. Yeah, you heard us.

Here’s where we blow your mind. Joseph actually auditioned for the role of Tom Riddle (you know, the dude that became Lord Voldemort).

Almost half of the voters, 46 percent, thought that Joseph had auditioned for the role of Cedric Diggory — the role that eventually went to a pre-Twilight Robert Pattinson. Only 20 percent of Viggle users thought that Joseph had gone out for the role of Charlie Weasley (the one who worked with dragons).

If we think about it, Joseph could have totally played all of these roles — and it’s a travesty that he didn’t.
