Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) Returns As A Deadbeat To SNL’s ‘Hogwarts 2020’

Hogwarts in 2020 looks much the same as it did in the early aughts. The castle is unchanged, most of the professors are still there (Kristen Wiig played Professor MacGonagall and Bill Hader sported a vampiric black wig as Professor Snape), and Harry Potter is still hanging out on campus! Yes, the Boy Who Lived is in his twenties and desperate to relive his glory days, drinking beer and razzing the new students to the chagrin of everyone who knows him. Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley are professors now, and wore matching expressions of confusion and pity when they encountered their unemployed friend, who apparently spends most of his free time playing Quidditch alone.

Daniel Radcliffe warned us in his monologue that a Harry Potter sketch was imminent, and this idea was a clever one. After all, if you saved the wizarding world before your eighteenth birthday, it would be pretty tough to go back to living normally. Plus, we got to have a gross joke about Hagrid marrying a student!

Watch the full sketch here via NBC:
