Tom Felton recently spoke about how he would like to pursue some comedic projects as a means to break out of his villainous mold from the Harry Potter films, as well as how much Draco Malfoy has developed in Half-Blood Prince:
Tom admits that he has some comedic timing and would like to show it in future films:
|“I don’t want to toot one’s horn so to speak, but I think I have the adequate timing and so forth to do comedic roles.
“Something along those lines would definitely interest me… As much as I’d love to play another villain, I do want to show different aspects to me in future roles.”
Felton continued: “You do have to be ever so careful about what you are taking on, but I’m not going to turn my nose up at anything and if something excites me, I’ll do it willingly.”
On Draco’s developing personality in the last two books, Tom had this to say:
|“Before, Malfoy was always two-dimensional. It’s never gone into depth about why he is like he is.
“The latter books divulge into the depths of his childhood and his relationship with his father. A lot of questions and answered in the upcoming films and it makes playing him a lot more fun. He has much more varied emotions now rather than being a one-trick pony.”
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out July 17, 2009.

I think it would be great fun to see Tom Felton in a comedy, although I wouldn’t like it to be one of the gross gags type of film with food fights or the like. A romantic comedy would be even more fun.
Tom would be great in comedy something like men behaving badly or there was a series called Man about the house. A comedy about 1 male and 2 females sharing a house.
‘toot ones horn’? love it! I would love to see Tom in a romantic comedy, somthing like…ummm….mean girls? or somthing like that!
