Radcliffe who portrayed the most powerful dark wizard of all time on the world cinema as Harry Potter; is all set to collaborate with the likes of Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson for Fast & Furious 9/12, maybe. The reason for such collaboration isn’t specified, however, it is being speculated that Radcliffe is expected to fill the void created by the absence of Paul Walker.
Speaking at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, promoting his upcoming movie Guns Akimbo, Radcliffe sat down with MTV News for an exclusive interview.
Discussing his future plans, about his potential as an action-hero and whether he would like to team-up with the likes of Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, Radcliffe said – “He’d love to if there is a role for a non-driver“.
Radcliffe in Fast & Furious
Daniel Radcliffe had already given this some thought or he extemporized on the spot, anyways he had some great ideas about the project.
“There’s something…they need to do something. Like there’s a big operation, right? They need someone doing their taxes or something. There’s got to be, like, an accountant or something for Fast 9.” – Daniel Radcliffe was quoted saying at Toronto Film Festival this year.
Daniel has made his intentions clear that he wishes to pursue action-oriented roles in the coming future. This was one of the most eminent reasons that he took up Guns Akimbo.
He already has experience of flying a motor car in his earlier movies, however, he doesn’t wish for driving a car in Fast & Furious.
When asked if he could drive, the actor said – ” Not really, no. I’ve got a license, but only so I can drive on sets and I don’t really do it. I’m really bad at it.”

Harry Potter Effect
For many years Harry Potter movies have ruled millions of hearts leaving an ever-lasting impression. The ostensible magic and an enthralling storyline have kept viewers occupied for long enough.
On the contrary, Fast & Furious series has also enjoyed vast popularity among the fans. If the cast of these two extensively popular worlds is to unite, the results could be highly profitable for the producers and filmmakers.
While there isn’t a confirmed role for Radcliffe yet, Fast & Furious cast is already been joined by several new superstars.
Recently Marvel star, Michael Rooker who plays Guardians of the Galaxy’s Yondu signed up for a role in Fast & Furious alongside fellow newcomer “JohnCena” who is set to play a ‘badass’ role.
These new sign-ups would undoubtedly be very interesting for Fast & Furious fans.
