Daniel Radcliffe on BuzzFeed News' AM to DM
A new interview! Daniel appeared on the morning show AM to DM from BuzzFeed News to promote Miracle Workers. Isaac Fitzgerald played a game called Radcliffe or Badcliffe with Daniel. In the interview he does address the Lego Movie 2 rumor and he was also asked about the following tweet by Pottermore regarding Harry Potter. Also mentioned: his fact checking for The New Yorker (The Lifespan of a Fact).
Hogwarts didn't always have bathrooms. Before adopting Muggle plumbing methods in the eighteenth century, witches and wizards simply relieved themselves wherever they stood, and vanished the evidence.

Daniel Radcliffe goes to heaven in Miracle Workers

Daniel Radcliffe goes to heaven in Miracle Workers
Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) journalists met Daniel in Park City during the Sundance Film Festival (The Salesforce Music Lodge according to the photo) on Saturday 26th January. You can read the interview, in promotion of Miracle Workers, below. He mentions that he will start filming Escape from Pretoria in a couple of weeks.

Miracle Workers
sounds like a fascinating concept, given the current political and social flux, and all these religious controversies, isn't it?
Well, for a show set in heaven, it’s a comedy and it’s not that much about religion. The show is much more secular than Rich's book was. But yes, I think one reason that I love the show is that it has a very dark comedy in it – people die because we are in heaven – so those are the things we are dealing with. But there’s also a real warmth and kindness in this comedy, it’s not mean-spirited and I think it has a huge amount of love and optimism for human beings, as crazy as the world is right now.

And redemption, trying to do good things too?
I think one of the overarching things about the series is God rediscovering his love of Earth and what he created. At the beginning of the season, he is kind of disillusioned by it and by how badly it’s all going, and his journey is to learn what actually you have created, although it is mad and messy, is also beautiful and sort of genius.

What do you think about the fact that you come to Sundance not with a film but with a TV series?
It’s nice to just come here and I can just enjoy this, and it is lovely doing press for something that you like. And I am so happy to see all the cast again and show what you did, whether it’s film or TV.

In terms of God being center stage right now, do you think God really loves people?

I don’t believe in God (laughter), so I have a hard time wondering if he is feeling that way. But I almost feel that we are at a dark place in history at the moment, and I think this show has a very realistic but also optimistic message about us as a species. That sounds very grand and it is just a seven-part comedy, but it does have a lovely message by the end.

Why did you want to do it? 
I was just so blown away by the script. And I think the world that Simon (Rich) has built in Heaven, in its very bureaucratic, funny convoluted kind of version of Heaven, is a world that I'd want to spend time in and see how it all works. I read the book and I had a meeting with Simon, and I told him if you ever make anything out of this, TV, film, radio, theater, I don’t care, I just want to be a part of it in any way possible.

Another theme in the show: do we really have free will about love? Is it a coincidence, are people supposed to be together? What do you think?
I don’t think there’s one person for everybody. I think this show says that not everything happens for a reason. Personally, I think love is something that you have to work hard for; at the same time loving another human being is the most joyous thing that you can devote yourself too. And the incredible thing about the show is that these two people that you so want to get together, they are so blissfully unaware that the entirety of Heaven is working hard to get them together!

Steve Buscemi is playing God. If you had the chance to sit down and have a conversation with God, in whose form would you want it to be?
I would go with Michael Gambon, who obviously played Dumbledore in Potter: Michael is one of those guys who looks like one might imagine God but also is just really silly and fun. So, if I get to heaven and Michael Gambon is there as God, I will be pretty happy.

Will there be a second season?
I hope so. We don’t know. It has to come out and we see if people like it but hopefully, yes. The second season will be an anthology series, so the idea would be to take as much of the same cast as we could, and just change the setting, change the roles, change the story, just reset it in a totally different world, I don’t think in heaven.

What’s next for you? Are you really going to be escaping from prison in South Africa?
 [laughs] I will be in a couple of weeks: I will be starting Escape from Pretoria. We are filming in Australia actually – unfortunately we couldn’t film in South Africa – in Adelaide, which is doubling for Pretoria, and I am practicing my South African accent a lot. I very much look forward to it.

The Lifespan of a Fact: Gigi
Gigi is a 4 year old Mexican girl with end stage leukemia and her biggest dream is to meet "Harry Potter". It was shared massively online (I also received many mentions on Twitter) via hashtag #ElSueñoDeGigi.

Today I noticed that it has reached Daniel, and you can watch the video below. It was recorded at Studio 54 in New York on the closing day of The Lifespan of a Fact

Her dream came true! ♥

God decides to close up shop on Earth–unless two idealistic angels can make a miracle happen.

Welcome to Heaven, Inc., the grossly mismanaged corporation in the sky. For as long as anyone can remember, the founder and CEO (known in some circles as “God”) has been phoning it in. Lately, he’s been spending most of his time on the golf course. And when he does show up at work, it’s not to resolve wars or end famines, but to Google himself and read what humans have been blogging about him.

When God decides to retire (to pursue his lifelong dream of opening an Asian Fusion restaurant), he also decides to destroy Earth. His employees take the news in stride, except for Craig and Eliza, two underpaid angels in the lowly Department of Miracles. Unlike their boss, Craig and Eliza love their jobs – uncapping city fire hydrants on hot days, revealing lost keys in snow banks – and they refuse to accept that earth is going under.

The angels manage to strike a deal with their boss. He’ll call off his Armageddon, if they can solve their toughest miracle yet: getting the two most socially awkward humans on the planet to fall in love. With doomsday fast approaching, and the humans ignoring every chance for happiness thrown their way, Craig and Eliza must move heaven and earth to rescue them – and the rest of us, too.
