Daniel Radcliffe's Fantasy Team Name is "Barkevious Mingo's Mum"

Posted By on Mon, Oct 7, 2013 at 9:48 AM


Via the New York Times blog 6th Floor, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is obsessed with American football (much more than soccer, believe it or not). He plays in two Fantasy leagues this year, losing last week to Dane DeHaan,and it turns out Cleveland plays a prominent role in Radcliffe's squad. Here's the relevant clip from his interview:

What’s your fantasy team name?

Um, my team name is Barkevious Mingo’s Mum. I just think Barkevious Mingo is the greatest name I’ve ever heard, and the fact that his mum invented that name is also amazing. And in that league I have the Cleveland defense as well, and they had an amazing game the other day against Buffalo, so I’m incredibly grateful to the Cleveland defense, Barkevious Mingo and his mother.

He goes on to say how "grateful" he is for Julio Jones, his star receiver. What a charming son of a gun.

Radcliffe will play Allen Ginsberg alongside DeHaan, Ben Foster and Michael C. Hall in Kill Your Darlings, a movie about beat poets in the 40s, opening later this month.
