2013 was a busy year for Dan, and 2014 is already showing signs of being much the same.
During his Christmas break from filming Frankenstein, Dan snuck in a guest appearance on The Kumars, alongside fellow guests Olivia Colman and Chevy Chase. Dan’s episode is set to air 9pm Wednesday 15th January, on Sky One. For more pictures from the show, please visit the show’s webpage.
SnitchSeeker has been told by Fox that Dan’s second guest appearance on The Simpsons, in an episode called Diggs, will air in the US on 9th March. The synopsis can be read below.
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.
Dan is scheduled to film Frankenstein through to March, and is lined up to film Gold this spring, and Tokyo Vice in the summer. His well-received rom-com, The F-Word, is currently scheduled for a 2nd May release in the UK, and Horns is expected to be released in the autumn. We’ll keep you updated.
Kill Your Darlings, in which Dan plays American poet Allen Ginsberg, has finally opened here in the UK and Dan has wrapped up promotion on this side of the pond with an appearance on last night’s episode of The Graham Norton Show.
Debuting his new, longer hairstyle (for his role as Igor in Frankenstein) on national TV, Dan was on the receiving end of rather a lot of mocking from host Graham Norton, and fellow guest Mary Berry seemed rather enamoured of his extensions. You can watch the interview on BBC iPlayer.
The shortlist for the 2014 What’s On Stage Awards have been announced, and Dan has been nominated for Best Actor in a Play for his performance as Billy Claven in The Cripple of Inishmaan. Voting is open until 31st of January, and you can cast your vote here.
While camera’s rolled on Dan’s latest period epic Frankenstein on November 25th, today we’re getting our first look at him in character as Igor.
In an interview with SiriusXM last month, Dan heeded that this role would be far more complex than previous iterations of the character, saying:
“[Screenwriter Landis] taken the mythologies that we all think we know — we have this idea of a monster and a crazy scientist and kind of a hunchbacked assistant — but we don’t really know where all these parts came from,” Radcliffe said, explaining that the new film will play with the tropes that stuck to the tale from a variety of sources, be it the original novel or the many, many movies.
“I think what Max has done with this is first of all he’s given Igor a backstory which you never really see before,” Radcliffe said. “And so, that’s I think one of the biggest differences is that you’ll finally see him granted a life and a backstory and it’s about these two young guys at the forefront of science.”
Currently filming on location in Kent’s Historic Dockyard, local website Kentonline states “the movie is said to offer a “revisionist” take on the classic horror novel, telling the story through the eyes of Igor.”
Frankenstein is slated for theatrical release on October 17th, 2014.
