Daniel Radcliffe, better recognized as the Boy Who Lived, is set to star in the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt interactive special as per Netflix announcements, though we have no information yet about his role. Netflix has also announced that Jon Hamm will return to play Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne – the man who kidnapped and imprisoned Kimmy – played by Ellie Kemper- in an underground bunker for fifteen years.
The official synopsis gives some idea about the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Interactive Special which will be released in 2020. The synopsis mentions that this is Kimmy’s biggest adventure yet and also gives hints of “Three States”, “Explosions”, and “a dancing hamburger”. It says that the viewer will get to decide how the story goes.
Netflix first announced the Special in May making it the first interactive comedy event for the worldwide streaming service and also sees the central quartet of Kimmy Schmidt (Kemper), Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess), Jacqueline White (Jane Krakowski), and Lillian Kaushtupper (Carol Kane). Co-creator Tina Fey has stated that “fans will be able to make choices on behalf of our characters, taking different story paths with, of course, different jokes.”
Since the end of the widely loved Harry Potter series which made Radcliffe one of the highest paid actors in the world, he has stuck to indie roles in not-so-famous films including The Woman in Black (2012), Kill Your Darlings (2013), Victor Frankenstein (2015), Swiss Army Man (2016), and Imperium (2016), along with various appearances on stage and a role in the TV series “Miracle Workers”. His only recent blockbuster appearance after Harry Potter was Now You See Me 2.
Fey will produce the Special along with fellow creator Robert Carlock. Jeff Richmond (30 Rock), Sam Means (The Daily Show), and David Miner (30 Rock) will also be included. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Interactive Special will be released in 2020 on Netflix. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a production of Universal Television, Little Stranger, Inc., Bevel Gears, and 3 Arts Entertainment.
