Daniel Radcliffe Reacts to Johnny Depp's 'Fantastic Beasts' Casting Controversy

Throughout the casting controversy surrounding Warner Bros.' decision to keep Johnny Depp in Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Daniel Radcliffe had remained silent.

The Harry Potter actor waded into the subject with a measured response to Entertainment Weekly.

As much appreciation as Radcliffe has for the producers, he also offered a poignant perspective as he drew a comparison of Depp's continued casting to the hypocrisy of the NFL's domestic violence problem as well as his former Harry Potter co-star Jamie Waylett, who was written out of the final Harry Potter films after he was arrested for growing weed in 2009.

The State Department announced the interview with De Telegraaf on Thursday after it, too, faced questions about Hoekstra's comments.

"Honestly, there's an issue at the moment where there's a lot of people being accused of things, they're being accused by multiple victims, and it's compelling and frightening", Yates previously told EW. While the actor said that he wants to be supportive of the film's producers who "gave me a great start in life and an unbelievable job", that didn't stop him from sharing his thoughts on the matter.

"I suppose the thing I was struck by was, we did have a guy who was reprimanded for weed on the [original Potter] film, essentially, so obviously what Johnny has been accused of is much greater than that", he continued. J.K. Rowling, who wrote the Harry Potter novels and has written both of the Fantastic Beasts movies, recently addressed Johnny Depp's casting, saying that she's not only comfortable with the casting, but that they're happy to have him on board.

Warner Bros has very deliberately pushed forward with a movie that stars Depp as the titular character, in a thirst for the added revenue that Depp will apparently bring in, and they're willing to overlook all of his misdeeds in order to make a quick buck.

Some freakish things are happening at the Consumer Electronics Show , better known as CES, this year. Emergency lights stayed on, and backup batteries kept wireless internet connections functioning.

When Johnny Depp was cast as Grindelwald, I thought he'd be wonderful in the role. "There will be no further public statements about this matter". I understand why some have been confused and angry about why that didn't happen.

Despite the controversy, Johnny Depp is still slated to appear in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald when it hits theaters on November 16.
