Kill Your Darlings opens in LA and NY theatres in just over two weeks time, which can mean only one thing – it’s promo time. Dan spent yesterday being interviewed about the film, before it received its official New York premiere at the Paris Theater.
First up was a visit to NBC, where he spoke to TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie.
He then chatted to NBC’s Kathie Lee and Hoda.
Next up was a visit to Live! With Kelly and Michael to debut a clip from Kill Your Darlings. You can watch that interview here.
A quick change of clothes later, and Dan was at MTV with his co-star Dane DeHaan, talking to his Sundance roomie, Josh Horowitz. As of yet, there’s no word on when their interview will be released, but in the meantime, take a look at the happy/sad/confused picture the three of them posed for, as it is 100% guaranteed to make your day brighter.
After MTV, Dan was interviewed for SiriusXM’s Town Hall programme. You can listen to a two minute snippet here, ahead of the full broadcast this Thursday.
Interviews over, it was then on to the New York premiere of Kill Your Darlings, where Dan and co-stars Dane DeHaan and Erin Darke, along with director/writer John Krokidas, spoke to press and posed for photos.

The internet has been abuzz with a recent rumour that Dan had been offered the role of Freddie Mercury in a biopic of his life. Dan spoke to Empire magazine during a recent interview and debunked the reports, saying ”There is no truth to it at all. It’s one of those very, very funny things: it came out of a story in the Daily Star and then you see newspapers like The Guardian using The Star as their source, and it grows and grows [until] it’s ‘Dan Radcliffe is playing Freddie Mercury!’, which I was never going to do. Everyone on the internet who I presume is saying I’m totally wrong for that part is correct. I AM completely wrong for that part!”
Dan went on to say that if he’d seen a rumour that he was playing Iggy Pop, he’d have thought it sounded like fun and would give it a go (not the first time he’s spoken about portraying the performer). (Featured photo credit: The Guardian)
During his promotional duties at the recent Toronto International Film Festival, Dan spoke to FEARnet about his upcoming role as Igor in Paul McGuigan’s Frankenstein, scripted by Max Landis. Dan anticipates that Landis’s Igor will have a lot more depth than previous versions, and whilst he was unable to give away much about the film, he did say, ”It’s a wild script. It constantly surprises you and it’s great, great fun as well. The relationship between Igor and Victor is one of two young men at the absolute forefront of the technology of their day. Plus it’s a story about them pushing each other further, eventually having to make decisions about their relationship and their morality. I’m really excited about it and very excited to be working with James McAvoy as well.”
Previously scheduled for 8th November, Dan’s film Kill Your Darlings has now been rescheduled to a 6th December release, seven weeks after its UK premiere at the London Film Festival on 17th October (both performances are now sold out).
