, best known as the scarred and bespectacled schoolboy after playing the young Harry Potter in the movie franchise spawned by 's YA novels, has said that he thinks the role of the Harry's father would be "perfect" for him.
The 23-year-old thesp revealed recently in an interview with Time Out magazine (via Yahoo! Movies) that he is itching to become a dad because he looks forward to the "sense of purpose" that comes with having children. Radcliffe also admitted that in the unlikely event that Rowling ever writes a sequel or spin-off Harry Potter book, he's totally down with playing James:
No more schoolboy stuff. A cameo as Harry's dad? That would be perfect!
Wouldn't that be magical?
Having vowed to cut out the "schoolboy" roles, Radcliffe has been taking on some particularly adult ones, like playing Allen Ginsberg in ' Kill Your Darlings. Still, it's good to know that he'd be willing to make a Harry Potter-shaped exception. A sequel or spin-off to the popular fantasy franchise, however, would probably take J.K. Rowling a fair bit of convincing, so perhaps Radcliffe had better start looking for a baby mother in the meantime...
