Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, who can be seen in theaters next month in the new film The Woman in Black, will be the guest host of Saturday Night Live on NBC this weekend. With Lana Del Rey as the musical guest, DanRad will be the man of the night performing in the weekly batch of skits with the SNL cast. Dan teamed up with SNL castmember Jason Sudeikis for this weekend’s promo videos … which you can watch in full below.
The video clip opens with Sudeikis poking fun at Radcliffe’s British accent as the Harry Potter star attempts to introduce the episode, which will also feature musical guest Lana Del Ray. “What is that you’re doing with your voice?” asks Sudeikis. “Are you doing a character? Like a chimney sweep or something? Are you doing Winslet? What are you doing?” He later encourages Radcliffe to attempt an American accent, although brands Radcliffe’s choice of phrase – “What up, dude, give me some hamburgers and pizza!” – as stereotypical. Also in the promo Sudeikis is seen quizzing Radcliffe – who he calls “magic guy” – on the Harry Potter franchise, mistakenly thinking it’s about sex rather than magic. Radcliffe, who can be seen in the upcoming Woman In Black, recently said that it was a “no-brainer” accepting the offer to guest host the show and that he is “very excited” about the challenge. “It will be the kind of stuff I like, that kind of guerrilla style of getting stuff done when you just have to get it done,” he said. “Nothing else matters. You have to do it. You have to achieve. By the end of the week, you’re going to be putting on an hour-and-a-half music-and-comedy show from scratch.”
LOL! I love these clips. I just love Daniel Radcliffe period. He is such a great actor … one who can do drama and comedy with ease. You can tell just from these promo clips that he is going to be PERFECT on SNL this weekend. I don’t always make time to watch Saturday Night Live but I will deffo be tuning in for this ep this weekend.
