Daniel Radcliffe has never seen THE SOPRANOS or BREAKING BAD and prefers cartoons and reality TV

Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe recently revealed his taste in TV, explaining that he hasn’t watched many of the fan-favorite mainstream shows that have won awards and made waves in recent years. The actor explained when asked what kind of series he watches in an interview with Comic Book Resources (via Variety):

“Honestly, I watch cartoons and reality TV. I’ve never seen ‘Breaking Bad.’ I’ve never watched ‘The Sopranos’ or ‘The Wire.’ All that kind of heavy, hour-long stuff, I just can’t. I think it probably comes partly from growing up on ‘The Simpsons’… I was watching ‘Jeopardy!’ the other night, and one of the contestants attributed much of his trivia to “The Simpsons.” This is absolutely true for me too. There are so many strange facts and things, from my general knowledge of the world to my sense of humor, [that] they were formed in some way by ‘The Simpsons.'”

Radcliffe, who has had voice roles in animated series including The Simpsons, Robot Chicken, BoJack Horseman, AND Rick and Morty he went on to say that it shows how The Simpsons AND BoJack Knight they just wouldn’t be the same if they were presented in live-action.

“I think a lot of ‘BoJack Horseman’ would just be too fucking bleak and sad if it wasn’t a talking horse. The classic example is Homer strangling Bart in “The Simpsons.” In a live action [series], it’s just like a horrendous act of child abuse that there’s absolutely nothing funny about, whereas it’s a running gag on “The Simpsons,” and it’s funny because of what Bart’s neck does. It makes sense that our generation of people who grew up on “The Simpsons” would want to continue watching more adult-themed cartoons as they get older.”

Radcliffe is currently in the voice cast of the Netflix animated series Mulliganwhich released new episodes on May 24. She is also starring in the Broadway revival of We cheerfully proceedfor which he earned his first Tony nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.
