Hm. It looks like Harry Potter is becoming Hairy Potter. Oh yes.
Daniel Radcliffe, no dummy, is naturally eager to distance himself from Harry Potter. Presumably, that's why he's starring in Peter Shaffer's "Equus" on the London stage. I mean, why else would you?
(If you ask me, if he really wanted to distance himself he and Hugh Grant should do a film about Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud. Not that I've given it any thought or anything, you know, just... Putting it out there.)
He did do a great spot on Ricky Gervais' "Extras", though, hitting on Dame Diana Rigg while wearing a Boy Scout's uniform. You should be able to find that on YouTube, which is where I found it. Now that "Extras" is out on DVD I'll probably be adding that to the collection.
Not that this post is any serious kind of dissection of what goes into making an actor's career. I just like a spot of G-rated porn every now and then, especially if the guy is a) famous, and.. Well, there is no b), and even the a) is negotiable.
Radcliffe has definitely triumphed over the villain from the previous volume, "Harry Potter and the Onset of Puberty". Hopefully it gives him courage when he faces his next foe, entitled "Harry Potter and the Three Remaining Movies".
