Did Daniel Radcliffe Dis Stars Like Robert Pattinson & Selena Gomez? Says 'Nobody Wants To See Actors In Bands!'

Mon, July 11, 2011 10:10pm EDT by 16 Comments

In a recent interview, ‘Harry Potter’ actor Daniel Radcliffe made an off-handed comment about actors and music. Do YOU think he was being rude?

Despite being a musically gifted stage performer (who’s currently starring in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway), don’t expect to see Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe joining a band anytime soon like Twilight star Robert Pattinson. He thinks it’s lame!

In an interview with USA Weekend promoting the final Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Daniel, 21, laughed off the idea of putting his musical talents to use outside of acting. “Nobody wants to see actors in bands, just like we don’t want to see musicians in films,” the actor said.

Although his comment wasn’t pointed at anyone in particular, we can’t help but wonder if it was a dig at his former co-star, R-Patz, who’s said before music is his “back up” career and is even a member of a band called “Bad Girls.” In fact, Rob’s music has been featured in Twilight and was on the sound track!

We think Rob’s voice and his songs are top notch — and would LOVE to see him touring with a band. Plus, there are a slew of other major actors who both star in films AND sing in bands — ie: Selena Gomez, Jackson Rathbone, Jared Leto, Darren Criss and Cory Monteith to name a few — and their multi-tasking is only helping them!

Sorry, Daniel. We completely disagree with you. You missed the mark on that one!

Do YOU think Daniel was intentionally dissing Rob — or any of those other actors? Sound off below!

Well, of course it’s cool. Much better example Miley Cyrus who is an actor as well as singer too. I really don’t see any problem with that.

Delusional, much? Dan never dissed Rob. He never specifically singled Rob out. It’s just your way to start drama. Another failed attempt at trying to make Dan the bad guy.

He didn’t “dis” anyone, HL. Lay off trying to start trouble where there isn’t any.

You people at HL are idiots. Rob’s not in a band, he hasn’t been in years. You’d do better to look closer at Daniel’s castmastes. Jamie Campbell Bower is in a band and Tom Felton has a band, too. Lots of people in the HP cast sing. Daniel’s on Broadway right now, so I guess he thinks it’s okay for actors to sing sometimes.

Well, If you’re talking Robert Pattinson I might agree with his statement, however, If we’re talking about Jackson Rathbone actor (Jasper Hale), Singer in the band 100 Monkeys I totally disagree. He is an Awesome actor and singer.

The most annoying thing about this site is that they desperately make up stories where there are none. How anybody can make a leap to Robert Pattinson is ridiculous. Beside the rest of the comment is “just like we don’t want to see musicians in films”. Why is the headline Daniel attacks Robert instead of Justin Timberlake? Very lame.

I think dan’s awesome, I don’t know if robert is in a band or not, i think he was referring to a certain kind, like people who wouldn’t have been in a band if it werent for that they are famous because they act, it’s like they’re not good enough to sell as a band, but they make use of their fame as an actor to sell themselves as a band. I would hate that too. Because we need good band and not people buying your songs because they like you in a show, that’s plain greedy. Unless you’re really good.

Darren Criss does not sing in a band. Cory Monteith plays drums for his band, Bonnie Dune. They have a lead singer, Justin Wilczynski.

He’s not dissing anyone, and you know it.

What he says is true: it’s hard for an actor to break out into being a musician and visa-versa. Jeff Bridges had a cd out years ago and couldn’t get anyone to listen to it (hence his website). It’s just recently, because his character was a musician, that he’s been able to showcase his other talent. Stings tried it and was in a few things but he’s a musician. And you know that, and here I am wasting my time answering this nonsense. Some, I suppose, like Jennifer Lopez, but I can’t think of many. Oh, Jamie Fox – but I still think of him more of an actor.

But I like Daniel R, and Rob P, and I think you’ll have to come up with something better if you want to start a war between those two.

I couldn’t agree more. There is nothing there. He wasn’t directing it towards anyone let alone Rob. They just need a story.
