1. To portray this man a British actor is needed. Guess who is British!
2. It needs to be someone that has never played a part for any of the previous Harry Potter movies. Which is like ten British people, Matt among them.
3. Newt was born in 1897 and the movie is set in the 1920. That means that at the time Newt is in his late twenties or theerties. Matt is 30!
4. Considering this main character is a bit old compared to Harry. You would need someone that despite his age is very good attracting a large public of kids. And we all know how good old Matt was with the young audience of Doctor Who in this past 3 years.
5. We don’t know much about Newt’s personality, but we do know that he is a man of great curiosity. Someone with an unstoppable impulse to explore the magical world around him and his beloved magical creatures. That reminds me a bit of the 900 year old time lord who’s only objective in life was to explore the universe, finding out more about it and have fun!
6. After his time on Doctor Who is over Matt will be unemployed. That ladies and gentlemen is not acceptable.

And so i pray to the great JK to hear my request. I want to see Matt Smith swimming in lakes full of grindilows and kelpies, taming dragons and learning to do bow hunting from centaurs.
