    Really? That's pretty cool. I've noticed him in quite a few films in the US, too...though I think a lot were either pre-TNG or during it. Stuff like Far and Away, Last of the Mohicans, or The Commitments. Basically bit/supporting parts as "guy with Irish accent." He seems like a pretty decent actor, though.
    Yeah, he shot a mini-series back in my home province a couple of years ago. He was one of the main characters in this though.

    I don't see how this guy is going to be able to play Harry until the Deathly Hallows film, which should be out in 2010.
    Although a lot of teen movies do have 30 year olds playing high schoolers so what do I know...

    As do a lot of TV shows. It's not uncommon. The suspension of disbelief shouldn't be too difficult, considering he's been playing the part since he was a kid. Make-up and lighting can go a long way, too.

    Actually, I think the average age of an actor/actress playing a 16-17 year old is more like 23 or 24.

    He isn't posing naked. he has a nude scene in a play... Not sure why this is such a big deal.


    cuz he's a skinny-ass underage (in the US) movie mega star who acts in a movie franchise directed towards children.

    and now he's gettin' nekkid and all the little kids are gonna go "mommy, why is harry potter getting his junk out and showing it to a horse?"


    i personally don't acre; it's not like it's a movie, where kids will sneak in to see it just because he's in it. it's a long boring stage play which kids won't probably care about because it's a long boring stage play. the part that annoys me is that he's only doing this to get some street cred, which is fine, but it's just so obvious and fake.

    "IN A SHOCKING NEW ROLE, LAMB CHOP IS DEBBIE IN 'DEBBIE DOES DALLAS'!!!!!"

    So starring in a children's movie when you're a child precludes the prospect of taking sexually explicit roles?
    I don't see how this is any more fake than any other actor taking the part. It's actually pretty brave, considering the fact that he's striving for recognition without capitalizing on his existing family friendly image, and putting said image (and the prospects that come with it) at risk.

    I can picture girls (maybe some wand loving male fans too) going to see this just for his nude scene though.

    The Chick is 24.

    And a nude scene in a play isnt a bad way to shed an image. The Fact that its a play and a well respected play at that is a step in the right direction.

    As well, the number of people that will actualy see you nude will be very small.

    Well, he'll only be what, 20 when they film it? 21 when it premiers? It shouldn't be that hard for him to play a 17-year-old at that point. Hell, look at Smallville. Guy that plays Clark Kent was 24 when the series premiered. Yeah, he didn't look like a 15-year-old, but he still looked like a teenager at least.

    Personally I bet it's got less to do with wanting more challenging roles and more to do with realising that being remembered as the little kid with the glasses and the stupid hair will never get him invited to the playboy mansion. Getting buff, naked and assaulting horses on the other hand...

    A lot of serious actors aren't that rich at all. I don't see how it's fair to assume he'd take Jason Biggs roles if he didn't have his paychecks from Harry Potter. It's not like actors that only do theatre aren't talented.

    Colm Meaney was great in a fairly recent Irish indie movie called Intermission, a highly amusing slice-of-life/caper flick (slice-of-caper?) which I commend to any fans of Go or Bottle Rocket. It's also got Kelley Macdonald, the schoolgirl from Trainspotting, who just keeps getting hotter, and also (to wrench the thread back on topic) Shirley Henderson, who played Moaning Myrtle.

    I know the girl who was one of the final three narrowed down for the role. I think she was 20 at the time (and looked younger). Giving it to someone who looks in their 30s was weird.

    And I think Daniel Radcliffe realises he needs to branch out while he can. He's not a very good actor, so he needs the experience and exposure if he wants to have a decent career beyond Potter 7.

    That girl from White Oleander and Matchstick Men creeps me out in her ability to play different ages, although I know she's at the right age to pull it off.

    When I saw the pic I was like, man, I wish I had a hot naked 24-yr-old at my back and reaching for my goods when I was 17.

    I don't think Radcliffe was ever in too much danger of type-casting. For one, Harry Potter was a sensation before he was ever cast, and millions of people were all paying attention to him as "the actor who's going to blah blah blah" long before we actually saw him play the role, so it isn't quite the same as Mark Hammill, whose image blasted into everyone's head as this new and unprecedentedly awesome character before we even knew the actor's name. Also, Radcliffe isn't a total charicature or anything, he looks like a normal guy. Take off the glasses and add a few years and he's good for any role. Kind of like Doogie Howser or something, you hardly even notice it's him these days.

    I think Hermione is more in danger. As soon as she hits 18 she really needs to do the clichéd, 'I-just-wanted-to-show-I'm-not-a-child-anymore" role. Showgirls 2?

    Um...glancing over that nearly everything since Star Trek has been voice work. I noticed maybe seven or eight non-X-men/Star Trek roles in movies. I mean, the list is long but you've got bit TV appearances, voice work (including video game voice work) and Star Trek film listen there too. Take all those out, and you're left with X-men and a few others. In like thirteen years. I don't really count X-men because to me it wasn't much of a departure from Star Trek and didn't do anything to help break the typecasting.

    I'm not saying he isn't successful, or isn't a good actor. And I know he's done some stage acting as well (and been successful there). It just seems that like pretty much any other Star Trek actor, there isn't much use for him on the screen except as basically-himself or as Picard-but-not. Not his fault, mind you...it's the audience's.

    I think he's always considered stage acting his first love and real career, so probably isn't too concerned about how he's perceived in his film work.

    Oh, I agree. I basically think of him as a stage actor as well, who happened to have a couple notable roles on-screen. I always thought he seemed a bit overqualified for Star Trek...but I don't think he or the show suffered for it. I don't think stage actors have to deal with the same level of typecasting bullshit as TV/movie actors.

    I will say it must be nice as a stage actor to have all that Star Trek and X-Men money to pay the bills.

    It's funny, he originally didn't want the role of Picard, but his agent convinced him the show wouldn't take off, and he should take it for some quick and easy money.
