(Newser) – The young stars making magic in the Harry Potter series are far too nice, says co-star Jason Isaac. “The problem with Harry Potter,” the actor who plays Lucius Malfoy, father of Potter rival Draco, tells the Telegraph, “is that there is so little controversy.” They “should have rebelled.”

“It would be so great for the press if one of them would go off the rails and end up in rehab,” Isaac says of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint, “but they are, actually, just really sweet guys.”
