Radcliffe wants role with The Rock

Daniel Radcliffe has asked his friend to try to net him a role alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

Daniel Radcliffe is desperate to team up with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

The British actor made his name starring in the Harry Potter franchise, while American Dwayne was a professional wrestler before making it on the big screen. Dwayne is best known for appearing in an action flicks like the Fast & Furious movies and while Daniel hasn't done anything like that before, it's not putting him off pursuing his dream.

"I would love to do a movie with Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock! A good friend of mine dresses him, so I said to her, 'You have to tell him I've been obsessed with him since I was a kid!'" he laughed to British magazine Company.

Daniel's latest movie is What If, in which he plays unlucky-in-love character Wallace. He forms a close bond with Zoe Kazan's Chantry. Although she has a boyfriend, the pair still question whether they are more than friends. While Daniel draws some parallels between himself and Wallace, they aren't totally the same.

"The script was really funny and well written. And I definitely share the same sense of humour as my character, Wallace," he explained. "Although I'm not as stupid with women as he is. I'm a lot more direct about things; I wouldn't have been hanging around for years like him."

Daniel appears naked in the film, which is becoming something of a habit for him following his turn in the nude in play Equus. He doesn't see what all the fuss is about though; especially as even his mother and father aren't interested.

"Yeah, I can't f**king stop myself can I? Honestly, though, it's not like I flick through the script and say, 'I need more nudity!' It's just the way it happened. Everything I filmed that one year - Kill Your Darlings and What If - I ended up getting my kit off!" he giggled.

"[My parents] saw Equus, so it's fine! I've never been embarrassed about being naked in front of my parents. I'm an only child and used to see my parents naked, so I was never made to feel awkward about it."
