Daniel Radcliffe: I’ll never be hot action hero

Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t think he fits the profile of a future James Bond as he claims he’s not “nearly strapping enough”.

The 23-year-old actor has taken on a number of character driven roles following the close of his Harry Potter movie franchise in 2011.

Despite his high level of acting expertise Daniel is convinced his looks will exclude him from venturing into action-adventure films as the leading man.

“I am never going to be cast to play a Bruce Willis character in Die Hard,” he told British newspaper The Sun.

“I would make a much better villain than Bond – I am not nearly strapping enough to play Bond.”

Matt Smith recently stepped down from the sci-fi role of Doctor Who in the famous TV series.

Daniel is not at all interested in filling Matt’s former role.

“I’ve done one iconic character, that might be enough,” he said.

Daniel has spoken before about how playing Harry Potter in the film franchise impacted his life.

He jokes that he won’t be buying a box set of the eight fantasy films anytime soon.

"No! It would be like watching a home video of yourself as a kid," he exclaimed to the British edition of Glamour magazine.

"Essentially that's what I have - the world's most expensive collection of home videos ever made."

Daniel will next be seen starring opposite Juno Temple in horror movie Horns, which is due out around Halloween.
