If you need another reminder that time's flat circle will eventually roll over and crush you, it might as well be in the form of Harry Potter news.

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the public's introduction to Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as the three precocious, magical children who found adventure, friendship and eventually love in the halls of Hogwarts.

Seriously, 15 years.



You probably have memories of this, don't you? Meaning you are even older than old.

Here's part of the original press release that preceded the filming of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:

ATTENTION ALL MUGGLES! Director Chris Columbus and producer David Heyman have discovered their Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from the thousands of children who cast their names into the hat to play the roles. Young actor Daniel Radcliffe will be the film's Harry, with newcomers Rupert Grint and Emma Watson taking on the roles of Ron and Hermione, Harry's best friends at Hogwarts, in Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming adaptation of the first in the best-selling series of Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling.



The hashtag #15yearsofDanEmmaRupert has sprung up around the anniversary with people sharing their memories and their appreciation for the wizarding trio.

By the by, this is what they look like now:



And you're probably older. Much older.

Sorry about the reminder that death is hurtling towards you at lightning speed.

Coming soon (not really) to BBC near you!

Daniel Radcliffe is set to play Sam Houser, the co-creator and current president of Rockstar Games. Houser is credited with both the creation of GTA and upping the ante as far as video game violence was concerned.

This, as you know from the early 2000s, drew the ire of Florida attorney Jack Thompson who was known for suing a variety of media outlets for racy and violent content.

As of now the part of Jack Thompson has not been cast. I for one am hoping Idris Elba is up for the role, despite looking nothing like Jack Thompson.



See, I think it could work.

Yup, Harry Potter can rap. The good part starts a little after 2 minutes in the video.

In a surprise move, further distancing himself from his boy wizard persona, Daniel Radcliffe, skillfully performed Blackalicious' "Alphabet Aerobics" on The Tonight Show Tuesday night.

Radcliffe says he was initially really into learning Eminem lyrics, and calls his fascination with memorizing fast paced rap songs "a disease."

But what does Ron Weasley think?

I like Dan Radcliffe as much as the next Harry Potter fan, but I don't think he's the right fit. Would you like to see him in the role, or do you have a ginger in mind for the 12th (13th?) Doctor? Let me know in the comments below!
