Daniel Radcliffe Sorts Miley Cyrus, Harry Styles, Kanye + More Into Hogwarts Houses [VIDEO]
Daniel Radcliffe recently sat down for a round of ‘Celebrity Sorting Hat,’ where he acted as the magical talking hat from the ‘Harry Potter’ series. He was asked to sort some big celebrities into Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin and Hufflepuff, and the result is hysterical.
The 24-year-old actor stopped by BuzzFeed for a lengthy interview, which concluded in the wizarding game. The interviewer pulled out a pretty convincing Sorting Hat replica and handed Daniel four signs representing each of the Hogwarts Houses.
Right off the bat, Dan was feeling pretty hesitant about his sudden power. “I already can’t put anyone in Slytherin, because that’s just me bashing them. Is Kim Jong-un in there?” he joked.
First up at the Sorting Hat was Meryl Streep, who went off to the house of scarlet and gold, “because she’s awesome, and awesome people go to Gryffindor,” Daniel reasoned. (Are you implying the other houses aren’t awesome, Dan?)
When faced with Andrew Garfield, the British star let slip a comment about one of the houses. Hufflepuffs, you might want to skip over this part if you’re easily offended! “Hufflepuff has always implied, like, a little bit of… dimness in the books and in the films,” he laughed, not unkindly. Then he held up Ravenclaw and Gryffindor signs. “[Andrew]’s obviously not nasty, and he’s obviously not dim. So you pick, Andrew, you can go in either!” (He eventually picked Ravenclaw, “just to even it out.”)
Miley Cyrus was another tough one. “Oh man, you’re making me do this,” the former ‘Harry Potter’ star groaned. “And especially after what I just said about all the other houses. Come on, Miley, come to Gryffindor. We’ll sort you out.”
Apparently Gryffindor is where all the cool celebs hang out, because that’s exactly where Harry Styles ended up, too. “He’s kind of got a bit of a mane himself, doesn’t he,” Dan said, comparing Harry to Gryffindor’s official animal, a lion.
He shook things up a bit when he sorted Beyonce into Hufflepuff — it was a crowd vote; he doesn’t think Beyonce is dim, but maybe the crowd does! — and again when he put Kanye West into Slytherin. “I think he’d be kind of happy with that, though. I’m going to get hell for this,” Daniel added.
The actor sorted a total of 16 celebs, and it just gets more hilarious with each passing sorting. To see all of the Hogwarts House results, check out his interview up above. (Warning: It’s a long one! The Sorting Hat segment is at the end.)
