Canal Plus has posted a behind the scenes look at Dan’s upcoming film Horns, in which he plays Ig Perrish, a grieving and wrongly-accused young man who wakes up one morning to discover he has grown a set of horns.
The video covers Ig’s futile attempts to remove his horns through various means, and we get to hear Dan’s rather good American accent as he talks to a snake. Much of the video is in French, but Dan’s voice is left un-dubbed and subtitled.
Horns is tentatively scheduled for an Autumn release.
Thank you to Titch for letting us know about the video!
Out has released an interview with Dan from the March issue of the magazine, along with a gorgeous new photoshoot.
Speaking to Out’s Aaron Hicklin, Dan discussed how he’s always known it would be a long process to create a career that isn’t defined by his role as Harry Potter – potentially a life-long one. “It’s about proving to people that I’m in this for the long haul, and that I wasn’t just looking to get as famous as I could for as long as I could and ride that out. I love almost every aspect of this industry and I want to be in it, and if I could drop dead on a film set at 80, that’s how I’d want to go.”

Out has released a preview of Dan’s interview and photoshoot for the March edition of the magazine.
When John Krokidas, the director of Beat-genesis movie Kill Your Darlings, approached Daniel Radcliffe to gauge his interest in playing Allen Ginsberg, he was struck by Radcliffe’s humility. Although a marquee name whose involvement could guarantee the investment necessary to make the film, Radcliffe nevertheless insisted on a proper audition.
“I think he was nervous about whether I would want to audition or not, and so at my first meeting with him I said, ‘I want to read, I want to audition,’ because at this point in my career, I am aware that my name brings a certain kind of cachet,” recalls the actor, who is the face of Out’s upcoming March cover. “I want to know that a director wants me for me, rather than for the cachet. I can see why people are skeptical about me playing Allen Ginsberg, because I don’t look like him—although, neither does James Franco—and I’m English and middle class, and not from New Jersey, but that’s what I think is so exciting about it, because people have no idea. I’ve always known I have potential to be a good actor, and I think more than a good actor, but I’ve also at times lacked the tools and didn’t have any training. When John was first auditioning me for Ginsberg, we hadn’t even done the seventh Harry Potter yet, so I was 17 or 18, and he had nothing else to go on apart from the fact that he’d seen me in Equus.”
Director Krokidas recalls the audition as a revelation. “He [Radcliffe] wanted to make sure that the primary creative collaboration in the movie was going to be between me and him, that our chemistry was going to be successful,” he said. “In some Midtown corporate boardroom, the two of us read some lines from the script together, and wow—a lot of actors talk about colors of the rainbow and different facets of emotion in their performance, and Daniel showed me colors I’d never seen before—it was astounding.”
