Hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time in his decade-long career, British actor Daniel Radcliffe poked fun at his Harry Potter roots besides Ricky Gervais and Casey Anthony.

The 'Woman In Black' star showed off a mean American accent on the show where he turned up as an amorous - and shirtless - coworker trying to ask Kristen Wiig's long-absent Target Lady out on a date to see 'Tin-Tin', The Hollywood Reporter said.

Several man-on-man kisses with homeless spin-the-bottle participants and one Jersey Boys spoof later, Radcliffe finally landed on Potter. He is seen at Hogwarts in 2020, unable to let go of his glory days.

During the Weekend Update, news of Casey Anthony's recent pet adoption prompted Seth Meyers to interview her new Yorkshire Terrier, played by Radcliffe in dog drag.

After testing the lines of slander, Radcliffe finally broke when Meyers went to pat him on the head. The 22-year-old recoiled with a perfectly timed, "What are you doing? I'm living on a razor's edge!"
