Daniel Radcliffe Reveals Everything, Everywhere Directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan tried to cast him for the multiverse movie.
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe reveals he was almost cast as Everything everywhere all at once. The sci-fi film follows Chinese-American immigrant Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh) who runs a laundromat with her husband Waymond (Ke Huy Quan). As stress mounts in Wang’s life due to financial problems, Waymond’s desire for a divorce, and her father’s arrival from China, she soon discovers that she has the ability to access memories and abilities. of different versions of herself from parallel universes. Released in March Everything everywhere all at once is a hit with critics and currently sits at a new 97% rating on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.
Radcliffe’s breakout role as the titular character in the Harry Potter series propelled his career at an early age. After finishing the massive franchise, the actor turned to acting as well as indie films with unique stories. One of these films was Swiss army man by writing and directing duo Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, affectionately known as “the Daniels”. They also happen to be the creative team behind Everything everywhere all at once, thus paving the way for a potential role for Radcliffe which, unfortunately, never materialized.
In a recent interview with EmpireRadcliffe admitted he was almost thrown into Everything everywhere all at once. When asked if Radcliffe had the chance to see the Daniels’ new movie, the actor shared his love for them and revealed that they were considering him for Everything everywhere all at once. Read what the actor had to say below.
“I’m so excited. It’s the best. At one point they tried to get me in, and I was doing a play, so I couldn’t be there, which I’m still bummed out about. They’re probably the only people in the world that I would say yes to doing one of their movies without even seeing the script. If they want me in something, I know it’s going to be for a reason and if they do something, it’s is because they found something amazing to do. So yeah, I would follow these guys to the end of the world, really.
It’s unfortunate that Radcliffe had to die Everything everywhere all at once, especially since it seems to value original and offbeat projects. Radcliffe’s previous experience with the Daniels during Swiss army man clearly went so well that he would have signed Everything everywhere all at once without a second thought, and he probably would have had a great time on set. Radcliffe recently compared a scene from his upcoming Bipoic Weird Al Yankovic to one in Swiss army man, calling his experiences on both movies the weirdest things he’s ever had to do. Perhaps Everything everywhere all at once could have topped that.
Ever since Radcliffe stepped away from the mainstream following the Harry Potter franchise, the actor has shown his range in a variety of idiosyncratic roles. Since horns for Akimbo Firearms, no project seems too strange for the former boy wizard. If Radcliffe had been thrown into Everything everywhere all at once, there’s no doubt he would have stepped into the role, delivering a compelling performance with both levity and intensity when needed. It would be interesting to hear what kind of role the Daniels had in mind for Radcliffe, despite having him play a rotting corpse in Swiss army manit probably would have been pretty wild.
