My Boy Jack has received four IFTA – Irish Film & Television Award – nominations in the Best Drama, Costume Design, Hair & Make-up and Sound categories.

New Empire Online Interview with Dan

Posted by coralie on 23/01/08

There is a new interview with Dan over at Empire Online in which he speaks a little more about the movie Journey


"There’s a lot of stuff flying around about this at the moment. I am absolutely attached to it and it would be amazing to play that part. But people are making assumptions about when it’s going to happen and it won’t happen – if indeed it does happen – for a while yet."

Dan also had this to say about Dan Eldon, whose life was tragically cut short when he was killed in Mogadishu in 1993


"He was someone who died very young, but seemed to live as full a life as much as anyone who lived to be a ripe old age. It’ll be incredible to play him."

Many thanks to Lauren, Lynda and Jeannine for the link and information!

My Boy Jack Part of FIPA Festival

Posted by coralie on 22/01/08

Dan was very proud, and rightfully so, to have been part of the cast of the beautifully scripted and poignantly acted movie My Boy Jack last year, therefore I imagine that he and his co-stars must be pleased that the made for television movie is one of the competitive selections being shown at the 21st FIPA Festival – The International Festival of Audiovisual Programs – being held this year in Biarritz, France. According to the festival’s official schedule, MBJ will be shown on Thursday January 24, and again on Friday January 25.

Many thanks to Sabine for the good news!

Golden Tomato Award for OotP

Posted by coralie on 21/01/08

According to this article, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has just won a Golden Tomato Award in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy category in Rotten Tomatoes’ 9th Annual Golden Tomato Awards.

Rotten Tomatoes is a well known and respected website containing information and reviews of thousands upon thousands of movies, and their Golden Tomato Awards honour the best-reviewed films of the previous year… all things considered, a Golden Tomato is a rather nifty award to receive; now bring on the Golden Pasta Award and a good bottle of Chianti wine to go with it! toung.gif

Many thanks to Raya for the tip.

Award Nominations for Order of the Phoenix, Extras Wins Golden Globe

Posted by coralie on 17/01/08

Here are two feel good news items that are related to Dan through his work: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix just received two BAFTA Award nominations for Production Design and Special Visual Effects, and Ricky Gervais’ Extras won the Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series; the clip that was used on award night was part of the episode featuring Dan as an over-amorous (to put it mildly!) boy scout.

So good luck for one, congratulations for the other, and many thanks to Frenchi for the tips! amuse.gif

More on Dan’s Upcoming Project:Journey

Posted by coralie on 14/01/08

Here are two interesting new articles for you to read about Dan’s upcoming project, Journey, in which he will play the part of photographer Dan Eldon, killed in Mogadishu in 1993 while working for Reuters. The first entry is from Kathy Eldon’s blog, The Destination is the Journey, in which Mrs. Eldon gives a touching account of her personal journey to find the perfect actor to portray her son.


"Daniel Radcliffe is perfect for the role. He’s young, hugely talented, he’s the right age and cares about issues, but most of all, he has a great sense of humor and will inject tremendous energy into the project. He has been playing a magician for a long time. Dan was a different kind of magician – able to activate souls like his hero, Ralph Waldo Emerson."

The second is from Reuters’ website.


"Eldon’s mother Kathy told the Observer she’d met and turned down several other stars eager to play her son, but Radcliffe fits the bill perfectly because of the many parallels between the two – not least a global outlook, magic and poetry."

Many thanks to Radcakesfan for these!

Posted by coralie on 12/01/08

News Round-up

Posted by jenna on 10/01/08

Thanks largely to our wonderful radcakesfan, we have a few news tidbits for you that got lost in the holiday shuffle.

Apparently Dan scored third place in Now Magazine’s Hottest Hunks (or similar title, not sure of exact wording) December issue. You can also see an interesting LEGO assembly of Dan as Harry Potter at the Bellaire Toy Museum Online.

Lauren also captured the video where Dan talks about his favorite films of 2007 (Bourne Ultimatum and Zodiac), and you can watch it HERE. I’d have to disagree with him on those picks though…I am more for Atonement and I am Legend. toung.gif

Another fun factoid comes from the August 2007 issue of Details magazine that Dan graced the cover of, selling over 91,000 copies…by far outdoing the previous August issue’s circulation. Supposedly, his issue was the best-selling release of 2007! Admittedly, I usually don’t buy magazines with Dan in them, but I did pick up one of those…no idea why. weird.gif
