In a recent interview, Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that his dream role would be playing David Bowie.
The Harry Potter star is set to star in the upcoming thriller, Escape from Pretoria. The movie is based on the real-life story of two imprisoned South Americans and their escape. This choice of roles has subsequently led people to wonder if Radcliffe would be interested in taking on any other biopics.
Speaking with Fox News, Radcliffe said: “If you’re talking like dream thing, who would it be fun to play and which songs it would be great to sing, then I suppose it’d be David Bowie.
“But I’m not actually submitting myself for that. I don’t think I’d be good, and I certainly think there are people that’d be better. And also, we don’t need to make a film about everyone’s life.”
He added: “If it was a musician that I loved as well, there would also be this sort of twin pressure of I don’t want to screw up a movie about my favorite musician.”
In conclusion, Radcliffe would love to play Bowie except not really, because it’s too much pressure.
