>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

MY GUEST TONIGHT STARRING IN

HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS

WITHOUT REALLY TRYING.

YOU MAY KNOW HIM FROM HARRY

POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS

PART 2.

>> CAN YOU SEE ANYTHING?

>> EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH WILL

MULTIPLY.

>> Jon: COME ON.

THAT LOOKS COOL.

PLEASE WELCOME DANIEL

RADCLIFFE.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

NICE TO SEE YOU.

THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

HAVING ME ON.

>> Jon: I DON'T WANT SPOILERS.

I DON'T WANT... I'VE NOT HAD A

CHANCE.

DOES HE GET HIS RING BACK?

>> YES.

HE'S THE CENTRAL CHARACTER IN

THIS FILM.

>> Jon: WHAT AN EXCITING TIME.

HOW ARE YOU FEELING RIGHT NOW?

IS IT EXCITEMENT OVER HAVING

THIS DONE?

IS IT MELANCHOLY, BITTER-SWEET?

>> I DON'T KNOW.

IT'S WEIRD.

WHEN WE WERE AT THE LONDON

PREMIERE I WAS GETTING VERY

EMOTIONAL.

I WAS KIND OF, YOU KNOW, IT'S

BEEN A YEAR SINCE WE STOPPED

FILMING.

I GUESS I'M JUST KIND OF

FOCUSED ON THE SHOW AT THE

MOMENT AS WELL AS DOING IT

EIGHT TIMES A WEEK.

YEAH, I DON'T KNOW.

I MEAN....

>> Jon: ARE YOU DOING THE SHOW

TONIGHT?

>> NO, NO, NO.

MONDAY IS OUR NIGHT OFF.

>> Jon: YOU GET ONE NIGHT OFF

ON EIGHT SHOWS A WEEK?

WELL, THAT IS THE LAZYIEST

THING I'VE EVER HEARD IN MY

LIFE.

TRY DOING FOUR 2-MINUTE ONES.

>> IT'S KIND OF SAD AND WE'VE

ALL HAD OUR GRIEVING PERIOD.

NOW IT'S VERY EXCITING BECAUSE

LOADS OF PEOPLE GTS.

>> Jon: THEY'RE GOING CRAZY

FOR IT.

WHEN THEY COME AT YOU WITH

THAT EXCITE MANY, IS IT HARD

AS SOMEONE WHO IS A A PART OF

IT FOR TEN YEARS, DO YOU GET

JADED?

DOES PEOPLE'S ENTHUSIASM, DO

YOU GO LIKE THAT'S NICE.

>> NOT AT ALL.

>> Jon: YOU KNOW, IT'S MAGIC.

>> NOT AT ALL.

THAT'S WHAT'S KIND OF COOL.

THAT'S WHAT'S GREAT ABOUT THE

SERIES IS THE FACT WE HAVEN'T

GOT JADED.

WE WERE EXCITED TO GO TO WORK.

FROM THE SIMPLE FACT OF ALL

LOVING OUR JOBS AND HAVING

DIFFERENT DIRECTORS COMING IN

AND KEEPING THINGS FRESH AND

WORKING WITH THESE ACTORS.

IT'S HARD TO GET JADED WHEN

YOU'RE A 14-YEAR-OLD.

>> Jon: THAT IS PART OF IT

BECAUSE AS A 14-YEAR-OLD BEING

JADED IS IN MANY WAYS YOUR

JOB.

IT IS LIKE, OH, GARY IS

COMING.

OH, WOW.

YOU'RE 14, YOU KNOW.

>> I KNOW BUT I DON'T THINK

I'VE BEEN VERY GOOD AT THAT.

THERE'S THIS WHOLE THING ABOUT

PEOPLE MY AGE.

I THINK WHAT'S LOVELY ABOUT

THIS IS IT DOES KNOTS APPLY TO

THEM IN THE SLIGHTEST.

I'M ALWAYS AMAZED WHEN I MEET

A PERSON MY OWN AGE WHO IS

ENTHUSIASTIC.

I LATCH ON THEM.

COOL.

YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT ALL THIS

RIDICULOUS PRETENDING THAT YOU

DON'T CARE ABOUT STUFF.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

IT REMINDS ME OF STAR WARS.

I'M A 48-YEAR-OLD MAN.

AT A CERTAIN POINT GOING TO

THE STAR WARS CONVENTIONS, YOU

KNOW, BUT AS LONG AS MY SON

WILL DRESS UP LIKE OBI-WAN AND

PROVIDE SOME TYPE OF COVER FOR

ME, I DON'T MIND.

I'M NOT JADED ABOUT IT AT ALL.

I FIND THESE MOVIES TO BE

WONDERFUL MORALITY TALES WITH

GREAT CHARACTERS.

I ENJOY THE HELL OUT OF THEM.

>> THEY'RE A HUGE AMOUNT OF

FUN.

IT'S ACTUALLY FUNNY.

AMY, SHE LIVES IN MY BUILDING.

AND THE OTHER DAY I'VE BEEN

SAYING IT FOR WEEKS.

I NEVER SAID ANYTHING TO HER.

I HAD TO LEAN OVER AND SAID

I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU I'M A

MASSIVE FAN OF THE MIGHTY-B

WHICH IS A CARTOON.

ONLY ONE PERSON HERE KNOWS IT.

>> Jon: I KNOW IT.

>> I'M SCARED TO ADMIT THAT

THAT'S PERHAPS NOT THE ONE

THING SHE WOULD HAVE LIKED ME

TO PICK OUT OF HER CATALOGUE

OF WORK.

I SPENT THREE HOURS TODAY

WATCHING CARTOONS.

>> Jon: I LIKE YOUR JOB.

>> THIS GIRL I REMEMBER ASKING

AT THE OPENING NIGHT PARTY,

SHE SAID HOW DID YOU PREPARE

FOR THIS SHOW?

SHE WANTED ME TO SAY I SIT IN

A STABLE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS.

I WAS LIKE WELL I WATCHED

CARTOONS.

KIND OF GO TO WORK AND DO IT.

>> Jon: I CAN TELL MY CHILDREN

ARE GOING TO BE ACTORS.

>> THAT'S ALL THE PREP YOU

REALLY NEED.

>> Jon: I WANTED TO SHOW YOU

SOMETHING.

HERE ARE THE REAL WORLD

IMPLICATIONS OF HARRY POTTER.

ACROSS FROM OUR STUDIO.

WE'RE HERE ON THE 11th AVENUE

AND 52nd STREET STUDIOS WHICH

IS NEW YORK'S FAMED CRACK CORE

DISTRICT.

THERE IS A TOURNAMENT JUST

THREE DAYS AGO AND IT'S A

QUITTAGE TOURNAMENT.

REAL PEOPLE PLAYING REAL

QUITTAGE.

WE ASKED THEM TO SUBMIT SOME

QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

I WANT YOU TO SEE IT AND THEN

OBVIOUSLY ANSWER SOME.

LOOK AT THAT ONE.

>>

>> DO YOU FEEL ANY GUILT AT

ALL FROM OUR ONGOING

VIRGINITY?

DO YOU KNOW ANY ANTI-WEDGEY

SPELLS.

>> DAN, WHAT WAS UP WITH THE

FIRST HALF OF THE 7th MOVIE.

IT WAS MENTIONED IN THE BOOK

BUT NOT THE OTHER MOVIES.

>> CAN YOU TELL MY MOM TO PICK

ME UP AT 5:00.

>> DID YOU EVER DO IT.

WHAT IS "DO IT"?

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> LET ME THINK.

YES, I FEEL VERY GUILTY.

YOUR MOM HAS PROBABLY LEFT YOU

THERE BY NOW.

I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT THE

OTHER ONES ARE BUT THAT POOR

KID, THEY WERE LIKE TACKLING

HIM.

>> Jon: HE'S TEN.

>> HE'S THE SNITCH.

I HAD TO EXPLAIN TO ME THAT

SOMEBODY RUNS AROUND AS A

SNITCH AND HE'S POUNCED ON.

>> Jon: THE KID IN YELLOW IS

TALKING AND THERE'S A GUY

BEHIND HIM WIELDING THE BROOM

LIKE A CLUB.

>> I DIDN'T SEE THAT.

>> Jon: LIKE CAPONE IN THE

UNTOUCHABLES.

LIKE "THIS BROOM GIVES ME

ENTHUSIASM."

HAVE YOU ACTUALLY GONE....

>> JON.

WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, WHAT DO

YOU THINK WOULD HAPPEN IF I

DID THIS?

IT WOULD BE CHAOS.

I FIND THE REAL....

>> Jon: IT WOULD BE ABSOLUTE

MADNESS.

>> IT WOULD BE A NIGHTMARE.

I WOULD LIKE TO THINK I WOULD

BE REALLY GOOD.

>> Jon: YOU'D BE, IN FACT, THE

CHOSEN ONE.

>> NICE.

>> Jon: HARRY POTTER AND THE

DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART 2.

>> YOU CAN'T AVOID IT.

>> Jon: YOU SHOULD GO SEE IT

IN THE THEATERS RIGHT NOW

BECAUSE IT HASN'T EARNED ITS

SECOND
