Which I guess would be the idea? “Daniel Radcliffe has already spent time in the shoes of one legendary character for a film franchise, but rumors continue to persist that he is set to play Wolverine in the future of the X-Men franchise.” He’s denying that it’s gonna happen, just like Andrew Garfield did about SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME – so your guess is as good as mine, right?
Mind you, I don’t want to see this because I think he’ll be like the iconic Wolverine. I want to see this because a Radcliffe Wolverine would be hilarious. Like, “everybody involved is drunk with power” hilarious. It might not even be a bad flick!
Nah, it’d probably be really bad. But still.
Apparently one of the directors to one of the Harry Potter movies wants to do a film version of the stage play HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD. But: “…[Daniel] Radcliffe was asked to comment about Columbus’ Cursed Child statement. The actor admitted that it’s something he’s “really not interested in doing right now,” especially when he’s at a certain point of his life and career where he feels like he has already “made it out of Potter.””
Lemme translate that out of Polite: Not just ‘No.’ That’s gonna be ‘Hell to the no.’ Sorry, what’s that? I can’t quite hear you, over the sound of all of this money.

Well, except for the ridiculous amounts of money and the entire acting thing. But you don’t learn this one by accident. I agree with Weird Al, here: it’s a good sign.
Via @JoePCunningham comes this extremely important news.
“Weird Al” Yankovic— the prolific musician behind humorous songs like “Eat It” and “Amish Paradise”— is getting the biopic treatment with help from Daniel Radcliffe.
Radcliffe will star as the five-time Grammy winner in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. The description for the film says it “holds nothing back, exploring every facet of Yankovic’s life, from his meteoric rise to fame with early hits like ‘Eat It’ and ‘Like a Surgeon’ to his torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle. Weird: The Al Yankovic Story takes audiences on a truly unbelievable journey through Yankovic’s life and career, from gifted child prodigy to the greatest musical legend of all time.”
It’s going to be exclusively on… the Roku Channel, which is somehow perfect. And if you’re wondering how they got Daniel Radcliffe, I can only imagine that it’s because he wanted the role. One of the more entertaining things about Radcliffe is how much he enjoys doing whatever movie he damn well feels like doing. Hopefully they get Weird Al Yankovic to dub his songs, though. Or maybe they’ll get Radcliffe to dub one of Al’s. That’d be funny, too.
PS: Of course I’m going to see this. I’d go see it in theaters.
