SNL's Daniel Radcliffe Episode: 5 Best Scenes

More

[Daniel Radcliffe showed off a convincing American accent, took an obligatory turn as Harry Potter, and paid tribute to the assortment of actors (Bill Hader, Hugh Jackman, Rachel Dratch...) who have played Harry Potter on SNL over the years. Musical guest Lana Del Rey performed "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans" (provoking a harsh reaction from the Twitterverse.)]

Some highlights...

Hogwart's Castle, 2020—ten years after graduation, Harry Potter can't stop hanging around. (With Bobby Moynihan and Vanessa Bayer as happy couple Hagrid and Luna, Paul Brittain as Malfoy, dropping his kid off at school, and Bill Hader as the portrait of Severus Snape):





Casey Anthony's stressed-out Yorkshire Terrier (Daniel Radcliffe) drops by weekend update ("I think perhaps the dog adoption process could be slightly more diligent"...)





Theater-goers of the future look back at life in 2012 (when people still had to use the bathroom, and before Taylor Swift had assassinated anyone...)





You Can Do Anything!—mediocre but supremely confident Millennials show off their "talents" on an all-new TV show. ("I'm what you call 'Twitter-famous'"...)





'Headz Up' from World-Tel—the app that tunes in so you don't have to:





Also: Germaphobe Dave (Daniel Radcliffe) plays Spin the Bottle with a bunch of hobos; Ricky Gervais (Jason Sudeikis) gets some new hosting gigs (including the Kids Choice Awards, the Westminster Dog Show, and the Philadelphia Flower Show); and Kristin Wiig waylays New Hampshire primary voter Daniel Radcliffe for an unusual exit poll.

NEXT, on FEBRUARY 4: Channing Tatum, with musical guest Bon Iver.

Sage Stossel is a contributing editor at The Atlantic and draws the cartoon feature "Sage, Ink." She is author/illustrator of the graphic novel Starling, and of the children's books  On the Loose in Boston and On the Loose in Washington, DC. More

On Election Day in 1996, TheAtlantic.com launched a weekly editorial cartoon feature drawn by Sage Stossel and named (aptly enough) "Sage, Ink." Since then, Stossel's whimsical work has been featured by the New York Times Week in Review, CNN Headline News, Cartoon Arts International/The New York Times Syndicate, The Boston Globe, Nieman Reports, Editorial Humor, The Provincetown Banner (for which she received a 2009 New England Press Association Award), and elsewhere. Her work has also been included in Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year, (2005, 2006, 2009, and 2010 editions) and Attack of the Political Cartoonists. Her children's book, On the Loose in Boston, was published in June 2009.

Sage Stossel grew up in a suburb of Boston and attended Harvard University, where she majored in English and American Literature and Languages and did a weekly cartoon strip about college life, called "Jody," for the Harvard Crimson. From 2004 to 2007, she served as Books Editor of the Radcliffe Quarterly

After college she took what was intended to be a temporary summer position securing electronic rights to articles from The Atlantic's archive for use online. Intrigued by The Atlantic's rich history and the creative possibilities in helping to launch a digital edition of the magazine on the Web, she soon joined The Atlantic full time. As the site's former executive editor, she was involved in everything from contributing reviews, author interviews, and illustrations, to hosting message boards and producing a digital edition of The Atlantic for the Web.

Stossel lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
