For his latest act, Radcliffe plays his first traditional movie villain, an honor he jokingly calls a “rite of passage” for any British performer. In Now You See Me 2, the razzle-dazzle sequel to the 2013 sleeper hit, Radcliffe plays Walter Mabry, a sketchy tech genius who lures The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Lizzie Caplan, stepping in for Isla Fisher) to Asia and forces them to work their magic in another high-stakes heist.
