Daniel Radcliffe to Obama Girls: ‘Come to Hogwarts!’
Being the daughters of the President of the United States has its privileges. Just ask Sasha and Malia Obama, the children of newly installed Chief Executive Barack Obama.
First Sasha and Malia, 7 and 10 respectively, were treated to a late-night visit from chaste musical combo the Jonas Brothers. Now the girls have been invited onto the Harry Potter set by the film series’ star wizard, Daniel Radcliffe.
Characterizing President Obama as “everything the rest of the world liked about America and now likes again,” the 19-year-old actor tells the Daily Beast, “I’d like to take this opportunity to issue a public invitation to the Obamas that if their daughters would like a private tour of the Harry Potter set, I would be honored to be their personal tour guide.”
Smart move; Daniel. Because offering the family free tickets to your hit Broadway show Equus would have been totally inappropriate.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part I, the first installment of the two-part finale for the film series, is currently filming and is scheduled for release in 2010.
The second installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part II, is in pre-production and will hit theaters in 2011.
