Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe‘s faced some pretty formidable figures in his time on screen, including Voldemort and the Woman in Black, but his next project might see him dealing with even more terrifying.

Even before the conclusion of the Harry Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe was making a valiant effort to prove himself as an actor. He performed on Broadway, in independent dramas, psychological thrillers, and now he’s likely to play his most different role yet. Radcliffe is in talks to play Igor, the lead character of Max Landis‘ unique take on Frankenstein. Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) is set to direct. Read more below. Read More »

Friday is the first real day of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and I spent the afternoon in the Eccles Theater (aka the Park City High School auditorium) watching two films: Jerusha Hess‘ adaptation of Austenland starring Keri Russell, and Kill Your Darlings starring Daniel Radcliffe as Alan Ginsberg. After the jump you can find my mini reactions and a video blog I recorded with Steve Weintraub from Collider.

If you ever want to feel bad about your paltry salary, looking into what you favorite A-listers make per film is a good way to do it. No doubt Kristen Stewart works hard on her Twilight movies — it can’t be easy saying some of those lines with a straight face — but can her $25 million payday for Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2 really be worth it?

Actually, yes. Forbes has compiled a list of the actors whose movies offer the highest returns for their hefty paychecks, and Stewart comes in at an impressive #2 on the list. The only person who makes a better investment is Natalie Portman, whose Black Swan ultimately grossed 25 times its $13 million budget. Read the full list after the jump.

The image above comes straight from Sundance and is the first official look at the cast of Kill Your Darlings, which features a good crop of young actors as Beat Generation luminaries such as Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs. Daniel Radcliffe plays Ginsberg and Ben Foster plays Burroughs; Jack Huston joins in as Jack Kerouac, and Dane DeHaan plays Lucien Carr, who introduced Ginsberg to Burroughs and Kerouac, and in so doing helped create one of the most notable writers’ cliques of the century.

But a guy named David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall) was in love with Carr, and when Kammerer was found murdered, the group of friends was caught up in the investigation, and the young Ginsberg’s coming of age is tainted by experience he would never have predicted.

A full synopsis for the film is below. Read More »

At first blush, Harry Potter and Don Draper wouldn’t seem to have much in common, but according to a new Brit miniseries, the former grows up to become the latter. Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm signed on several months back to star in the drama-comedy A Young Doctor’s Notebook, as younger and older versions of the same character.

A batch of set photos circulated a few weeks back, showing the actors trying their hardest (and mostly failing IMO) to look like the same person, and now the first trailer has hit the web. Hit the jump to see if they fare any better on video. At the very least, you’ll get to enjoy the novelty of seeing these two engage in some steamy loofah action.
