HOLY HOGWARTZ! Daniel Radcliffe is interested in playing Harry Potter again

Daniel Radcliffe became one of the most beloved actors in the 2000’s playing the boy wizard Harry Potter, and it appeared his days in the role were done when the blockbuster film series wrapped up in 2011 at least until now. Radcliffe in interview this week with the Radio Times stated his optimism for playing Harry Potter again under the right circumstances.

It would depend on the script. The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying ‘No’ for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future..

Outside of Radcliffe, the Potter role has only been played by Jamie Parker in the stage show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London. Radcliffe stated he is hesitant to see the new stage show because “would it be more about them watching me watch the show or would it take away from the show?”

Radcliffe has not been struggling to find work in his post-Pottter life, his most recent film ‘Now You See Me 2’ opened this past weekend. He also appeared in ‘The Women in Black’, ‘Kill Your Darlings’ and a stage production of ‘How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’.

If that is not enough Potter news, well let this trailer put a lightning bolt on your forehead. ‘Fantastic Beasts’ based on another fantasy book by ‘Harry Potter’ author J.K. Rowling is set to hit theaters this fall. The story will play as a spin-off/prequel to the Potter series and extend the universe of characters into the United States with the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) in the 1920’s.
