Rehearsals for The Cripple of Inishmaan’s Broadway run started this week, and Dan has been out and about being his usual charming self to promote the show.
Following his Times Talk and appearance on Live With Kelly and Michael, Dan appeared on The Couch, where he played a game of Fill in the Blank:
Your favorite thing about living in New York is…
DR: Breakfast anytime of the day.
Your favorite horror movie is…
DR: Straw Dogs.
Your current TV obsession is…
DR: I’ve just obviously started watching Cosmos like everyone else, there’s an English quiz show called Pointless which nobody over here will know and will mean nothing to anybody, but that.
The character you liked the most in Harry Potter (besides yours) is…
DR: Sirius Black.
The most embarrassing song on your playlist is…
DR: Joe Dolce, he’s an English novelty singer who did a song called “Shaddap Your Face,” and that for some reason, I own that.
On Thursday, Dan chatted with Jimmy Fallon and was invited to play a game of Sticky Balls. Awesomeness ensued.
Friday saw Dan appearing on The Today show.
Dan also spoke to Anglophenia about the play, and how he feels that his name alone isn’t enough to get people to buy tickets:
The Cripple of Inishmaan begins previews on 12th April, and opens 20th April for a 3 month run. For more information and to buy tickets, visit crippleofinishmaan.com/
As part of promotion for the upcoming Broadway run of The Cripple of Inishmaan, Dan took part in a 90 minute Times Talk interview. We’re currently working on a summary of the event, but in the meantime, you can watch the video below.

Dan posted the above picture on his Google + account, which you really should be following, because, as we reminded you the other day, it is his official (and only) social media profile. Here’s what Dan had to say about it in his post regarding his Google + page:
“Thank you everyone for your support of my Google Plus page. It’s a lot of fun and will continue to grow. I also want to thank you for sharing my posts on your personal pages across G+, Facebook, Twitter and beyond. As you know this is my only verified account on social media. And it’s for you. If you’re inclined, I’d appreciate your sharing the message so others aren’t mislead by fake accounts or wrong information. All the best!” -Dan
It’s been a busy few weeks for Dan, so I think we’re due a bit of a round up!
The F Word will be released in the US on 1st August 2015 (as What If), opening in LA and NY and expanding across the country over the following two weekends. It will be released elsewhere, under its original title, from 22nd August.
Originally scheduled for a January 2015 release, Frankenstein has been pushed back to October 2015. Dan finished work on the film last week, and said goodbye to his Igor hair extensions with a post on his Google+ page.
Kill Your Darlings is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray in the US, and is scheduled for a UK release 21st April. The extras include deleted scenes, one of which can be seen here.
The three month Broadway run of The Cripple of Inishmaan starts in just a fortnight, with the original London cast set to reprise their roles. Dan spoke to Entertainment Weekly about his return to the New York stage, and the lessons he has learned from his time on Broadway and the West End. You can read the interview here.
A new TV advert for the play has been released, and is embedded below.
Dan will be participating in a Times Talk on 31st March to promote the play, and you will be able to watch a livestream of the 90 minute talk here. The event starts at 6:30pm EDT (11:30pm BST), and should be archived for those of you that don’t fancy staying up until the wee small hours.
On 1st April, Dan will be a guest on Live with Kelly and Michael, and on the 3rd April, he will appear on the Tonight Show Featuring Jimmy Fallon. The 4th April will see Dan making an appearance on The Today Show. Check your local listings for times and channels.

Let’s talk Twitter.
Dan has mentioned countless times that he doesn’t have a Twitter account, so it stands repeating – he doesn’t have a Twitter account. He just doesn’t, however much some of us may want him to.
Unfortunately, over 800,000 of you have been fooled by @DanieIRadcIiffe, who is passing off Dan’s Google+ posts as original tweets. That account, and any other claiming to be Dan, are all fakes. Fake accounts may seem innocuous, but people are quick to believe what they read on the internet and there are unscrupulous people willing to exploit that. Dan’s only social media presence is on Google+, and his page can be found here.
If and when Dan does join Twitter, you’ll read about it here and on other fan websites, and he will have a little blue ‘verified’ symbol next to his user name.
So, unfollow the fakes (and if you haven’t already, follow us) and make your Twitter feed a much nicer place.
