Daniel Radcliffe, who will one day be introduced as something other than the star of the Harry Potter series (but today isn’t that day), is ready for the Super Bowl.

He revealed as much in an interview with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival, which Radcliffe is attending to promote his upcoming TBS series Miracle Workers. Asked who he’s rooting for in the Feb. 3 showdown between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Ram, he responded with a succinct, matter-of-fact answer: “Rams.”

Then he added: “Because, like, the whole world is rooting against the Patriots. Like… sorry.” 

That’s mostly true. There are a few U.S. states that fall under the banner of “New England” and most of those people are probably backing the Pats. But this is also a team that’s been to the Super Bowl nine times since the year 2000, with five wins. They’re not exactly an underdog.

(The fact that team owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick, and quarterback Tom Brady are all Donald Trump pals hasn’t helped the Pats popularity either.)

Radcliffe accepts the dominance of Brady, who has led his team to all five Super Bowl wins over the years. He doesn’t think the quarterback, who is regularly called out as professional football’s G.O.A.T., should retire.

But Radcliffe also doesn’t mince words about Brady’s stated politics, and his attachment to a piece of political memorabilia that many have come to regard as a symbol of the current administration’s hateful beliefs.

“No [he shouldn’t retire],” Radcliffe exclaimed. “But he should also stop winning things. Take that MAGA hat out your locker. I feel like that was the moment where, as a country, we were all like ‘Oh come on dude! You’re awesome and we’re behind you; don’t put that in there!'”
