USA Today interview

The trio talked with USA Today about Harry Potter and more, and here is Daniel's part.

"Hopefully in the next couple of years, I'll be back on stage in some form. I'd love to come to Broadway again," Radcliffe says. "They responded to the fact that I have a work ethic. I was on Broadway at the same time as Jeremy Piven, and I think he made me look really, really good because I didn't miss a show." He was jokingly referring to Piven's run in Speed-the-Plow, which was shortened by the actor's mercury poisoning.
David Yates, who directed Half-Blood Prince and will direct the upcoming Deathly Hallows movies, has lunch every week with Radcliffe. "Dan is maturing. He's got this natural leadership skill. I wouldn't be surprised if he became a director."
Once the final Potter wraps, Radcliffe is scheduled to play British photojournalist Dan Eldon, who was killed in 1993 in Mogadishu, Somalia. "I really want to do that. It's just a matter of getting the script absolutely right," Radcliffe says.
First thing he'll do after Potter? "Sleep. Ideally, I would have three weeks off and go straight to something else. I get bored not working. … I have a huge amount of energy. When I'm on set, I use it all up. At home, I go wild in my head."
