Harry Potter Director David Yates Admires Daniel Radcliffe’s Choices Post-Deathly Hallows


While Daniel Radcliffe has also spent a fair amount of time on stage — currently, he’s starring on Broadway in “Merrily We Roll Along” — and has occasionally appeared in mainstream films like “Now You See Me 2” and “The Lost City,” he clearly still revels in taking on projects out of the ordinary. On television, the actor has taken part in such comedies as the series “Miracle Workers” and the movie “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.”

A film that parodies the career of legendary music parody artist “Weird Al” Yankovic, Radcliffe’s turn in the title role in the comedic biopic has earned him a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. Better yet, Radcliffe’s turn as “The Weird One” has earned high praise from his longtime “Harry Potter” film director.

“It’s brilliant,” David Yates said.

Discussing “Weird” with Looper in an exclusive interview, Radcliffe explained his rationale for taking on the wide array of roles since the “Harry Potter” film series ended in 2011. While he has no clear explanation of why he’s made the choices he’s made in the past dozen years, he knows for certain that he has to have fun on projects he gets involved in.

“I don’t know if [what I’m doing] fits neatly into a ‘This is the type of film [I want to do]’ or ‘This is how this fits with everything else,’” Radcliffe explained. “But there’s a general spirit of, ‘I think I’d be really bored in a lot of movies where people just stand around and talk to each other.’ It’s a movie, and it’s fun to do stuff that’s crazy as well.”

Yates’ film “Pain Hustlers” begins streaming exclusively on Netflix on October 27.
