Dan confirms role in “Kill Your Darlings”; video of Jimmy Fallon appearance; AH and EW videos
Dan appeared on last night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (video here), and amidst playing cricket (with the audience as fielders), talking about his accent and Britishisms and being generally awesome (as per), he confirmed one very important piece of news – he is indeed going to be playing Allen Ginsberg in the film Kill Your Darlings.
Variety also confirmed the news, along with releasing additional casting and filming information.
Elizabeth Olsen, Dane Dehaan and Jack Huston are joining Daniel Radcliffe in “Kill Your Darlings,” the Killer Films and Benaroya Pictures thriller that tells the story of how a murder at Columbia University in 1944 brought together the young writers who would spark the Beat Revolution.
Olsen, whose profile rose dramatically this year following her turn in “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” will play Edie Parker, the wealthy art-student girlfriend of Jack Kerouac (Huston). Radcliffe will play Allen Ginsberg; Dehaan plays Lucien Carr, a classmate of Ginsberg’s for whom he develops feelings.
Variety goes on to report that filming is scheduled to begin 12th March on location at New York’s Columbia University.
