"Sharknado 3" finally gave us a reason to say, "Oh, hell no!"
After Daniel Radcliffe revealed he was a big "Sharknado" fan, rumors of a possible cameo in "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!" started flying around faster than a Golden Snitch. (That's fast, y'all. If you catch it, you basically win the Quidditch match.) The actor fawned over the idea during an interview with Ryan Seacrest, and he even came up with scenarios for his awesome death scene.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, "Sharknado 3" writer Thunder Levin said he heard Radcliffe was a fan and even wrote a part for him in the new movie, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.
"Much as I had hoped that would happen, it did not work out. There was some sort of a scheduling conflict and he couldn’t do it," said Levin.
(You're a disappointment, Harry.)
When asked about Radcliffe's potential part, Levin revealed the "Harry Potter" star was going to be "someone working at Universal Studios," but he added, "That's about as far as I can go."
HuffPost suggested it would be amazing if the actor were actually working at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, but Levin said Warner Bros. probably wouldn't have been a fan.
Though Radcliffe isn't in the film, the character he would've played still made the cut. Levin says, "Sort of a version of that character is still in the film, but it changed significantly once it was not gonna be him."
So there you go, Muggles. Make sure to look out for the part Radcliffe would've played, and just imagine how great it would've been to see Harry Potter get eaten by a shark. We know at least one dude who will.
"Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!" premieres Wednesday, July 22, on Syfy.
