Daniel Radcliffe shares which ‘Harry Potter’ role he’d want in a reboot.

The actor who helped bring the “Harry Potter” books to life on-screen in the early 2000s reminisced about his role — his co-stars’ roles, actually — in an upcoming installment of the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast.

Radcliffe, 32, joined host Josh Horowitz along with his current co-stars on TBS’s “Miracle Workers,” including Karan Soni and Geraldine Viswanathan.

In the third season of the anthology comedy series, Radcliffe’s Reverend Ezekiel Brown makes a hapless journey on the legendary Oregon Trail — a role very different from the British actor’s turn as a half-blood wizard at Hogwarts.

It was Academy Award winner Gary Oldman who played the vicious Sirius Black, and David Thewlis (“Fargo”, “Big Mouth”) as fellow Marauder Remus Lupin, making multiple appearances throughout the films.

For their parts, his “Miracle Workers” co-stars offered their own fantasy roles in a hypothetical “Harry Potter” reboot — with Soni selecting fellow nerd Hermione Granger because he “related to [her] the most,” and Viswanathan choosing Hagrid based on their shared love of animals.

HBO Max and Warner Bros., however, squashed rumors that a “Harry Potter” TV series was in development, telling The Post in a statement, “There are no ‘Harry Potter’ series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform.”
