Jonathan Ross tonight greets Daniel Radcliffe, his youngest-ever guest, as he continues the current season of his award-winning BBC ONE chat show, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross.


It is a UK TV exclusive and for Harry Potter star Daniel his first chat show appearance in anticipation of Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire.


Daniel, now 16, reveals he hasn't yet acquired a taste for alcohol: "I don't like wine. I think it's something you get at 18, and suddenly you like it."


And that although he's old enough to marry, "I probably won't... yet".


He's already deciding what to do when he leaves Harry Potter behind: "I definitely want to carry on acting, anything that's different to Harry Potter. I'm filming something in Australia at the end of the year, proper hard work, a wake-up call."


As for James Bond - "perfectly reasonable, I'm very suave!"


Jonathan also welcomes to the show Emmy award-winning actor, fervent environmentalist and expectant father Woody Harrelson, best-known to TV audiences for Cheers and now returning to the West End in Tennessee Williams' The Night of the Iguana.


He reveals he's still very friendly with Larry Flynt, who he portrayed in The People Versus Larry Flynt: "I still know him, hang out with him, I respect him even though I don't much like his profession."


Woody also talks about being a committed environmentalist: "'I feel that we're all on the Titanic, everything feels great but we're taking on water, I think we have to pay attention.


"The whole point is that our society has all these industries that seem to be running us into the ground, what we need is a sustainable economy."


And he says he would consider reviving Cheers: "I sometimes have dreams that we get it back together."


Texas singer Sharleen Spiteri talks about life fronting one of the world's most enduring bands. Their eighth album Red Book has just been released.


"[Being in a band] was something I'd never considered, it was a shock to me. At first I thought it was a wind-up," she says.


And there's music from Kaiser Chiefs with a live performance of Modern Way from their critically-acclaimed album Employment.


Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, 10.35pm, 4 November 2005, BBC ONE (repeated Sunday, BBC THREE)
