Daniel Radcliffe Sees Doppelganger Pics on 'Tonight Show': 'I Look Like So Many Stern Old Ladies'


Who knew Daniel Radcliffe was a straight-faced old lady in a past life? On Monday night, the Now You See Me 2 star visited The Tonight Show where host Jimmy Fallon showed him some Reddit images of people who resembled the famed British star.

“There’s a lot of people in the past who I look like,” Radcliffe admitted. “That one’s my favorite because that’s me as an old lady, as a young boy.”

Fallon turned over a series of images, including one of a soldier and several women.

“What is it about me that I look like so many stern old ladies?” Radcliffe asked, before seeing a smiling shot. “That one, she’s like suggestive and sexy.”

When a shot of a ‘70s-looking Radcliffe popped up, Fallon offered the actor a giant wig and shirt so he could recreate the look.

Look-alike images aren’t the only magic the former boy wizard is involved with these days. He’s starring as a villain in NYSM2. And with his past in the Harry Potter films, Radcliffe’s co-stars are getting a lot of pointed questions about the magic in the movie.

“People just seem to be thinking, ‘Did you learn any magic from Daniel Radcliffe?’ No, I wish that I could do that stuff,” he quipped.
