Russians To Sue 'Potter' Over Alleged Putin Resemblance
Law Firm Claims Dobby Character Looks Like Russian Leader

January 28, 2003

It's Potter versus Putin in the latest identity crisis to rock the Muggle world.

Some Russians are charging that a character from the latest Harry Potter movie was created in the likeness of Russian president Vladimir Putin.

The character in question is "Dobby the House Elf."

Some say there is a slight resemblance to the Russian president when comparing their noses.

One Russian law firm was so offended, it's preparing to sue the special effects team that created Dobby, Baltimore's WBAL-TV reported.

There is no response from Warner Brothers or President Putin.
