Daniel Radcliffe would absolutely jump at the chance to be in a Fast & Furious film but there’s one catch — he can’t drive.
Well, he can, but he’s just ‘really bad’ at it.
When asked by MTV News if his new role in action-comedy film Guns Akimbo is the start of a long illustrious career in action movies, he said it’s probably not in his cards.
‘I got to do a lot of stunts on [Harry] Potter and that was awesome,’ he revealed. ‘And then most of the films I’ve done since don’t particularly lend themselves to a lot of stunts.’
Daniel then added: ‘And then I’m not eminently castable in action movies, for various reasons.’
As the cast then start discussing a pivot into the Fast & Furious franchise for Radcliffe, who plays a nerdy video game developer in Guns Akimbo, asks: ‘Is there a part for a non-driver in that?’
When asked if he drives, Radcliffe responded: ‘Not really, no. I’ve got a licence but only so I can drive on sets and I don’t really do it. And I’m really bad at it.’

He then joked he’d probably be better suited in an admin or finance role on the set of a Fast & Furious film.
‘There’s got to be an accountant for the Fast [& Furious] 9. Like, “Guys, can you get, when you get a chance, we’ve got some admin back here, if you wouldn’t mind coming back.”‘
It’s not the first time Radcliffe’s put his name forward for an action movie, throwing his hat in the ring to replace Tom Holland as Spider-Man, if the opportunity ever comes up.
‘We’ve had many very effective Spider-Mans and I don’t think we need another one,’ the 30-year-old told ET.
He added jokingly: ‘That would have been the one I was right for because, you know, I’m English and most of the Spider-Mans are.’
‘I love superhero movies. I would totally do that,’ he said.
