The first promos for Daniel Radcliffe’s hosting stint on “Saturday Night Live” have turned up online and find the “Harry Potter” star in the “SNL” control room with Jason Sudeikis doing his best American accent. (“Chill broseph, I like Mountain Dew and big butts.”)
(Of course, we know the truth about Radcliffe’s American-ness after his recent brawl with MTV News’ very own Josh Horowitz … which you’ll find below.)
When Radcliffe stopped by MTV to talk about his creepy new film “The Woman in Black,” Josh asked about his gig this weekend at “SNL” and Radcliffe told him that doing the show was a “no-brainer.” “I had to think about it a little bit because it’s, you know, it’s the real deal. You live or die on that show. [But] ultimately it was a no-brainer,” Radcliffe said. “I love Seth Myers. Bill Hader, I think is just unbelievable. That Alan Alda impression. Just mind-blowing. … I really wanted to do it. And it’s very exciting. And it’ll be the kind of stuff I like. Like, that kind of guerilla style of getting stuff done when you just have to get it done and nothing else matters. By the end of the week, you’re going to be putting on an hour-and-a-half music and comedy show from scratch.”
