The 'Harry Potter' actor lands his first hosting gig on the NBC variety show for an episode that will air January 14, 2012.
Daniel Radcliffe continues exploring the many kinds of entertainment show since wrapping up "Harry Potter" film series. After hitting Broadway stage with the revival of musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying", the British actor is set to make his hosting debut on "Saturday Night Live" this winter.
The Arthur Kipps of "The Woman in Black" will host a January 4, 12 episode in which Lana Del Rey is booked as the musical guest. His episode airs a week after Charles Barkley returns to "SNL" as host on January 7, during which Kelly Clarkson will make musical performance.
Radcliffe has previously shown his interest in cracking jokes. When visiting "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" in last April, the 22-year-old star gave a try at stand-up comedy. "I told some horrendous jokes," he told host Jimmy Fallon before telling his one-liner joke, "How do you kill a circus? Go for the juggle."
