Dan’s Google+ has released the first image of Diggs, the eponymous character Dan voices in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons.
Diggs is set to air on 9th March, and the following synopsis was released earlier this month:
Bart is rescued from a confrontation with Springfield Elementary’s bullies by Diggs (Daniel Radcliffe), a recent transfer student and aspiring champion in the niche sport of falconry. But Bart soon discovers that Diggs harbors aspirations on a far more grand scale than wrangling falcons: he actually wants to take to the sky himself.
As of yet, there is no UK airdate, but we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, click the thumbnail below for a full version of the image.
Dan has signed to star in Brooklyn Bridge, the story of Washington Roebling, the “brilliant but inexperienced engineer” who takes over construction of the Brooklyn bridge when his father dies. Roebling’s obsession with the project endangers his health and his family, until he finds an unlikely ally in the form of his wife.
Directed and scripted by Douglas McGrath and produced by Killer Films (responsible for Kill Your Darlings), Brooklyn Bridge is set to start filming this August, once Dan has finished the Broadway run of The Cripple of Inishmaan.
Dan took part in a table read for the film back in 2010, opposite actress Lily Rabe. As of yet, there is no other casting news, but it is expected to follow soon, as the film will be sold during next month’s European Film Market.
With Dan also attached to play Sebastian Coe in Gold and Jake Adelstein in Tokyo Vice, and his films Horns and The F Word due for release, 2014 is shaping up to be a very busy and exciting year indeed.
Following a critically acclaimed West End run of The Cripple of Inishmaan, Dan and the original West End cast will be starring in the Broadway transfer of the play this spring.
The play will open in previews at The Cort theatre on 12th April, with opening night on 20th April, running through to 20th July. Tickets will be on sale at telecharge.com tomorrow from 10am. Much like the London run, over 10,000 heavily discounted tickets will be available, at $27.
You can find more information about the play at its official website, http://www.crippleofinishmaan.com/
Congratulations to Dan and his fellow cast mates!
