Before he became a larger-than-life hero of the Marvel cinematic universe, Chris Hemsworth was a young Australian soap opera star. When not wielding the hammer of Thor, the 39-year-old has starred in movies like The Huntsman, the Formula 1 driving film Rush, and, in a memorable turn to comedy, Ghostbusters. Now, the father of three who lives with his family far from Hollywood in Australia, is playing himself in a heart-stopping new series called Limitless. Chris and Willie Geist got together in New York for a Sunday Sitdown.
Daniel Radcliffe was 11 years old when he answered a call to audition for a movie based on the wildly successful Harry Potter books. By the next year, he was the most famous 12-year-old on earth. That first movie made a billion dollars at the box office, setting off a worldwide craze that led to seven more films with Radcliffe starring as Harry. He came out the other side of that 10-year run intact, at just 22 years old, and with the freedom, earned from the success of Harry Potter, to take on only the projects that strike him, like his latest, playing Weird Al Yankovic. Willie Geist got together with the actor in New York City as Radcliffe prepares for his next role, starring in a Stephen Sondheim musical.
