Daniel Radcliffe Wants to Go Back to the Future

Daniel Radcliffe Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly

Daniel Radcliffe wants to star in a remake of Back to the Future. The 22-year-old actor - who is best known for playing the title role in the Harry Potter franchise - would be keen to take on the role of Marty McFly if a new version was ever made.

Speaking about the film - which starred Michael J. Fox - Daniel told The Sun, "If there were a Back to the Future remake I would be in it. I fancy myself as a Michael J. Fox - sort of short and quite hyperactive. That sounds like me."
