Daniel Radcliffe & Co-Stars Try 'American Talk'

Daniel Radcliffe cracks up as he tries to read words in his best American accent in this funny new video with MTV‘s Josh Horowitz.

The 21-year-old British actor and his Harry Potter co-stars read phrases including “The Olive Garden,” “Justin Bieber is the man” and “Hey buddy, can I get an order of mozzarella sticks, please?” while trying to hide their British accents!

You MUST MUST MUST watch below – looks like Tom Felton and Rupert Grint have it down!

Justin Bieber is not the man and Twilight really does blow.

I think Rupert Grint has the most realistic american accent.

# 4

Tom Felton is obviously an American in disguise. This was really funny.

i’m a nerd because this combines my favorite things: harry potter and linguistics. i think that when trying to do a american accent actors try to use their jaw more and the guys sound like their voice gets a bit higher/more nasally. i feel like americans try to relax their tongue and go a bit lower when trying to sound english. i didn’t think any of theirs sounded that bad, but i actually thought rupert and emma’s sounded the best, although emma was really focusing on it while the guys tried to let it come naturally. i can’t do any other accent other than my natural new york one, so kudos to them.

amd i love how happy and good-natured tom felton is in all his interviews/fan interactions. i wish there really was a boo-yah restaurant.

love how dan and emma pause before saying twilight blows whereas tom and rupert just go ahead with it. They all know its true.

# 7

i hate americans.

Tom Felton rules!! I love, love him but they are all great actors and really nice young people.

tom felton was surprisingly funny

That was funny. Especially Tom ;)

@ibne: Then get off an AMERICAN site, dumbass.

Harry Potter is so much better than the Twilight series. They make Twilight look amateur and immature.

@Celia – You won’t be dissapointed! Prepare yourself for the Dobby scene if you’re an emotional sap like me haha


Oh I am. I cried like a baby when I read that in the book. I’m bring a box of tissues fo sho.

I’ve also heard the Hermione torture scene is quite hard to watch.

@Celia – Yeah it was kinda, good acting on her and HBC’s part though

This is really charming and different. I mean finally! So sick of the same old sh it questions being asked.

in american language, that means you love us.


Same here. I get tired of interviewers asking them, “how do you feel now that Harry Potter is ending?” Or “What was that last day like on set?” Or “Emma, why did you decide to cut your hair?” Or…you get the point.

Sweet. I just find it strange how hard Emma struggled since she lives in the U.S. now. I’d say she’s been carefully maintaining her British accent while at univesity. And who can blame her? Americans love cute girls who speak with a British accent. The men all did a fabulous job.
