Obviously, Daniel Radcliffe has got the whole "serious" actor thing down, but the true sign of a great thespian? They can make you laugh just has hard as they make you cry! Case in point? Dan Rad and his many, many hilarious interviews.

Recently, while promoting his upcoming indie flick Kill Your Darlings, he stopped by London's Capital Breakfast Show, where he proceeded to have his bum played like a pair of bongos. Yes, you read that right. One of the show's hosts mentioned that rapper Nelly brought this (talent?) along during a visit, and she's been doing it to their guests ever since.

    You forgot the “Daniel Radcliffe sings the elements song”

  • Isabela

    I almost fell asleep watching these videos. He is funny, but oh god, sooo boring videos

  • Not Fucking Taylor Lautcunt

    Why are these comment icons of Taylor Lautner?

  • Ruin

    You forgot:
    His stint as a one-time host on Britain’s ‘Have I Got News For You’.
    That one time when he made six months’ worth of paparazzi photos worthless by wearing the same coat and hat and shirt everyday, so they appeared to have all been taken on the same day.
    His episode in TV series ‘Extras’, in which he plays a far more perverse version of himself (antics include chatting up a woman and telling his mother she was pressuring him to smoke within the space of ten minutes, and flicking a condom onto an old woman’s head (he could have it back as long as he could say it’s technical name)).
    His role as Edmund, the Edward Cullen pastiche, in The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror XXI. (‘Let us fly through the air like a bat does… by jumping!’)

    But, you’re right; for a serious actor, he is one of those singularly funny people.

  • Shobi

    I can’t believe he won’t go on Harry Potter!! I mean we all miss him and want him to come back!!

    • Shena

      He didn’t say that, that’s just the media always distorting everything celebrities say. He just said he would be too young to play a 34 years old Harry, which is Harry’s age in the lastest short story written by Jo Rowlling, when asked if he would play that part. Which is senseless, because it was just a short story, there is not a new movie to play the character in.
