In case Sasha and Malia Obama don't have enough social engagements, the First Daughters now have an open invitation to visit the set of the next Harry Potter film — from Daniel Radcliffe himself.
"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," he said in an interview with The Daily Beast.
But he may have to wait. The girls have already been invited to the set of Hannah Montana, and the Jonas Brothers turned up to surprise them at the end of an inauguration-day White House scavenger hunt.
White House officials have been mum on any future celebrity meet-ups.
Radcliffe's other comments in the interview get into grown-up territory. He talks at length about his fan base among gay men — "When you know a gay guy has a crush on you it is the most flattering thing," he says — and makes a somewhat awkward transition to the subject of boarding schools.
"That's one thing Harry Potter has done if nothing else," he said. "It has restored the reputation of the English boarding school. It has made it something other than a hotbed of homosexuality. Every time a new Harry Potter book comes out, the numbers at English boarding schools go up."
What do you think? Should Sasha and Malia get to meet the boy wizard?
