NEW YORK, June 7 (UPI) -- Jimmy Fallon confronted Daniel Radcliffe with Internet images of his many look-alikes through time, making the actor question why he looked like so many "stern old ladies" from history.

While visiting the host on the set of The Tonight Show, the Now You See Me 2 actor compared himself to his old-timer dopplegangers while Fallon did the same. Many of the actor's matches turned out to be older women.

"What is it about me that I look like so many stern old ladies," the former Harry Potter star questioned.

Ultimately, the two dressed as a pair of their doubles they suspected would have been friends. After Fallon put on a long wig and handle bar mustache, Radcliffe said, "I wish this is what you looked like,"

Radcliffe also appears on the cover of the June issue of Modern Luxury, in which he discusses why he will "never" decide to leave acting.

"When you're a kid and you're in films, all you get asked is, 'So, what's going to happen to you?' You're constantly being forced up against the expectation that your career has a very, very short shelf life and that you're going to fade away. That attitude of, 'You're not going to last,' is really impressed upon you at a young age when you're a kid actor doing interviews. I don't want to be that," he told the outlet.

But the 26-year-old British stage and film actor added he's not above dabbling in other things in the meantime. "I'm interested in writing," he said. "I'm interested in directing. So if it's just acting going away, I'd probably do those two things."

He also said making a long-term plan would be "unwise" of him, especially in the film industry. "Unless you're going into a massive franchise...But for me, it's what works for me right now."
