Daniel Radcliffe has joined the cast of Netflix’s upcoming “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” interactive special, the streamer announced on Thursday.

The “Miracle Workers” star will play the character Frederick in the one-off, post-finale special, joining original series stars Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski and Carol Kane, but further details about his role have not been made public.

Here’s Netflix’s official description of the project: “In the “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” interactive special, Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) sets off on her biggest adventure yet. Three states! Explosions! A dancing hamburger! And you, the viewer, get to decide how the story goes. Will you foil the Reverend’s (Jon Hamm) evil plan and get Kimmy to her wedding on time? Or will you accidentally start a war against the robots? So grab your remote and a tray of delicious scrod, ’cause Kimmy’s got her own Netflix interactive special!”

The as-yet untitled episode will take the form of a “Choose Your Own Adventure”-style special, following in the footsteps of the recent “Black Mirror” experiment, “Bandersnatch.”

“Kimmy Schmidt” co-creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock will executive produce the Universal Television project alongside Jeff Richmond, Sam Means and David Miner.

“‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ was one of the first original comedy series on Netflix, and now it will be its first interactive comedy event,” Fey said in a statement when the project was first announced. “Fans will be able to make choices on behalf of our characters, taking different story paths with, of course, different jokes. I think it’s a great fit for our show and will be a great way to officially complete the series.”
