Helena Bonham Carter Is a Lip-Synching Librarian

In a music video, that is, though we'd believe it if that applied to real life as well.

The "Harry Potter" villainess pins up her hair and aches with romantic longing amongst the halls of the Dewey Decimal System in the music video for Rufus Wainwright's new single, "Out of the Game." Helena lip-synchs along to Wainwright's vocals whilst the actual singer takes on not one but three library-dweller supporting roles, one of which looks to be wearing a piece of Sonic Youth nostalgia-wear (kudos to our eagle-eyed friends at The Playlist for catching that).

We miss Bellatrix a lot, but it's nice to see her finding employment now that she's no longer indulging in her witchy ways. And while we certainly dig the kinky twist at the end, we hope the initial conflict introduced in the video was resolved and the new mattress was eventually delivered.

Check out the music video for "Out of the Game" below, courtesy of YouTube. Rufus Wainwright's album of the same name will be released on May 1.
