Daniel Radcliffe: 'I'd play James in Harry Potter remakes' - video

By
Daniel Radcliffe has joked that he would like to play Harry's father James Potter in any Harry Potter remakes.

In an interview on The Dave Gorman Show on Absolute Radio yesterday, the Woman in Black actor admitted that he is "upset" about the prospect of the series being remade.



"I've been kind of thinking who I'd like to play in the inevitable remakes, and I've decided I'd quite like to play James Potter," Radcliffe said.

"Just play my dad, nice two or three days work, you know. Yeah, that would be nice."

When Gorman asked him about the probability of remakes, he added: "Oh there's bound to be, and it upsets me now, you know.

"I didn't mind the Clash of the Titans movie, you know... but the thing that annoyed me was that Pegasus was black."

He continued: "It's like 'Why? Why?' 'Just change the colour just 'cos, just because we can, because it's a remake and it's new, let's change the colour'. It's Pegasus, he's supposed to be white, he's always white.

"I know that that will happen with Potter and it'll be like, I don't know, Hagrid will be a skinhead and it'll all just be weird."

Radcliffe has previously suggested that he would play Harry's godfather Sirius Black in a remake, adding that he could play Dumbledore if it takes a half-century for the new films to be made.

The actor admitted earlier this month that he almost quit the series after 2004's Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
