Daniel Radcliffe has expressed an interest in playing Iggy Pop in a film of the punk icon's life.

Radcliffe, best known for his role as Harry Potter in the film adaptations of JK Rowling's novels, is currently starring in What If, a romantic comedy. However, he hopes to one day play Iggy Pop and says he has the right physical attributes for the job.

"We've got a similar, gnarly, sort of slightly strange, skinny bodies," he told US radio host Eric J Lawrence.

Meanwhile, on the subject of Pete Doherty, Radliffe revealed in a new interview with the Daily Mail that he came face to face with The Libertines frontman but decided against introducing himself.

"I was obsessed with Pete when I was growing up, absolutely obsessed with The Libertines. And then I saw him a few months back on the train, having a cup of tea. I did used to worry about him when I was younger. I felt scared for him because of all the drugs and the lifestyle. I didn't say anything to him about it. It's his business. It's his stuff to deal with. Why would he want to hear anything from me?"

Radcliffe has often spoken about his love of music and appeared in the video for Slow Club's single 'Beginners' in 2012. Click below to watch now.
