NEW YORK, July 8 (UPI) -- Daniel Radcliffe
is still best known for his portrayal of Harry Potter
in eight film installments of the juggernaut series, but he's worked hard to take roles that challenge audience perceptions of him. So he's not likely to step into Potter's robes any time soon.
When asked if he'd reprise his role for J.K. Rowling's newly released Harry Potter story, the 24-year-old actor said he's not ready.
"My inclination is to say 'no,' because I don't think it's even a hypothetical at the moment," Radcliffe told reporters via satellite during Television Critics Association tour in New York.
"What she's written -- and I haven't read yet but I will -- I understand it's a very short piece. And he's 12 years older than I am now," Radcliffe added. "So it's not something I'd have to worry about for a long time, hopefully."
