DANIEL RADCLIFFE RESPONDS TO THOSE WOLVERINE CASTING RUMORS

February 11, 2019   |   Written by LAURA PRUDOM

Sometimes memes can take on a life of their own, so Daniel Radcliffe would like to set the record straight: He hasn’t been approached to play Wolverine now that Hugh Jackman has hung up the claws. Last week, X-Men movie producer Lauren Shuler Donner told reporters that they expect the role of Wolverine to be recast once Disney’s acquisition of Fox is complete, but no names have been discussed.

During an interview with Wired, responding to the autocomplete query “Is Daniel Radcliffe the new Wolverine?” Radcliffe joked, “There’s going to be a new Wolverine movie, in which it starts off with Hugh Jackman being put into a hot wash. And then when he comes out, it’s me. So yes, I’m very happy to announce that here.”

“This is what happens when you make jokes,” Radcliffe deadpanned during an interview with IGN while promoting his new TBS comedy Miracle Workers. “Wouldn’t it be great if you could just start casting yourself in things by just saying them in interviews? So I guess people have been asking something about me and Wolverine, and I made a joke about [playing] Wolverine after being in a hot wash, like I’d been shrunk in a hot wash, and the internet seems to think that I was putting that out there on my dream board cosmic ordering system.”

Radcliffe’s Miracle Workers co-star, Geraldine Viswanathan (who’s coincidentally working with Jackman in Cory Finley’s upcoming film Bad Education), joked, “You should do that, though – a comedy where Wolverine has gone through the wash.”

“A comedy where Wolverine has got tiny? And now I’m not as equipped to fight but I’m still really sharp? That would be great,” Radcliffe agreed.

“Like a little baby wolf,” Viswanathan suggested.

“Baby Wolf, we’ve got a title!” Radcliffe quipped. “‘Daniel Radcliffe is… Baby Wolf!’ I’d actually be really happy with that. I don’t think we have helped the issue with this interview. All I’m doing now is thinking of taglines. But there’s no truth in it.”

But that’s not the only internet controversy the former Harry Potter star has been sucked into: “I’ll also take this moment to say I was not cut out of the LEGO Movie [sequel], if we’re quashing rumors,” Radcliffe laughed. “The producers of LEGO said they had wanted to get Harry Potter in there and hadn’t, they didn’t get him in for some reason, and that turned into ‘Dan Radcliffe was cut from the LEGO Movie.’ And I was like, ‘I wasn’t! I wasn’t in it!’ I would’ve loved to be cut from the LEGO Movie. I didn’t have the chance!”

So there you have it – Radcliffe probably won’t be the next Wolverine, but he did admit, “If some super talented writer wants to write Baby Wolf and turn it into a massive franchise, I’m in.”
