The man behind Harry Potter's helper elf DOBBY has landed the biggest part of his career - he'll play writer Truman Capote in a new movie, with MARK WAHLBERG and Sandra Bullock negotiating supporting roles.

Actor Toby Jones will play Capote in the adaptation of one of the revered author's own books, In Cold Blood, with Wahlberg playing his book's lead character and Bullock playing To Kill a Mockingbird writer HARPER LEE.

Hollywood insiders claim Jones was offered the role of Capote after negotiations to sign Sean Penn up for the role fell through.
