Daniel Radcliffe on his 'Half-Blood Prince' performance: 'I hate it'

Daniel Radcliffe’s role as Harry Potter is what launched his career, but the actor doesn’t even think he was all that great in the film series. “My acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent and what I was trying to do just didn’t come across,” Radcliffe told the Daily Mail.

There are many things that can get in the way of true love, but one surefire way to put an end to a relationship before it even starts is, well, by already being involved in another relationship. That’s the idea behind What If, the upcoming romantic comedy from writer Elan Mastai and director Michael Dowse.

What If stars Zoe Kazan and Daniel Radcliffe as Chantry and Wallace, two people who seem more or less destined to fall in love—if only it weren’t for Chantry’s boyfriend. So now that the couple is forced into friendship, where will their journey take them? Well, we’ve got an exclusive preview of the film, in which the cast explains what makes this romantic comedy a little different from what you’re used to.

'Horns' trailer: Speak of the devil and Daniel Radcliffe doth appear

Losing your girlfriend to murder is hard enough. Losing your girlfriend to murder, being accused of that murder, and then sprouting devil-like horns out of nowhere? Probably the worst.

This is what happens to Daniel Radcliffe’s character Ig in Horns, a film based on a book of the same name by author Joe Hill about a man who grows horns only to find that they give him great power. Because apparently, people start confessing their every secret to you once you start looking like the devil.

Video: Daniel Radcliffe drives through hell in 'Horns' trailer

Daniel Radcliffe is smart, rich, and has a good sense of humor—and all three qualities are evident in Horns, the festival movie based on Joe Hill’s supernatural mystery novel and directed by horror maestro Alexandre Aja.

He’s smart because he’s constantly trying new things, like playing a murder suspect who sprouts devilish horns out of his head. Rich, from all of his Harry Potter money, which allows him to take chances on right-field genre movies without having to check his bank account first. And funny, because Horns is full of clever references to playing The Boy Who Lived for half of his life.

The movie, which co-stars Juno Temple, Heather Graham, and The Social Network‘s Max Minghella, premiered at Toronto last fall and is coming to San Diego’s Comic-Con next week. In the trailer, Radcliffe’s hero, Ig, communes with snakes, has a splitting headache, and drives a Gremlin. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Daniel Radcliffe's 'Frankenstein' take: New title, plot details

As anyone who’s read Mary Shelley’s classic horror novel (or seen one of the many film adaptions of the story, now in the public domain) can tell you, the creature most people think of as “Frankenstein” should really be called “Frankenstein’s monster.” 20th Century Fox’s upcoming take on the tale, however, has a title that makes the delineation even clearer: It’s called Victor Frankenstein, emphasizing the man, not the monster.

Can Daniel Radcliffe bring rom-coms back? -- VIDEO

What-If-Trailer.jpg

As a genre, the romantic comedy has been coasting on fumes for several years. Its last really big box-office hit was Hitch, and that premiered in 2005. What was the last rom-com that you loved enough to see twice? Mine was Knocked Up — which came out seven years ago.

But despite the genre’s recent, sluggish track record, maybe Hollywood should stop trying to reinvent the wheel and instead double down on old-school convention. That seems to be the course of What If, a throwback to the likes of When Harry Met Sally that stars Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan. Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Girl has a boyfriend. Boy and girl become friends. Boy pushes boyfriend out window. You know the rest.

There is something sweet about What If, which screened at the Toronto Film Festival last fall when it was still titled The F Word. Are you willing to risk a blind date on it?

Daniel Radcliffe talks skinny-dipping (again!) for new rom-com 'What If'

In the upcoming modern rom-com What If (Aug. 1), Daniel Radcliffe trades his wizard robes for jeans — and a bit of nudity.

But prepping for his first romantic lead required more than just dropping his drawers. In the film, from director Michael Dowse (Goon, Take Me Home Tonight), Radcliffe, 24, had to get comfortable acting in modern times. After Harry Potter and period films such as The Woman in Black, What If — about a med-school dropout (Radcliffe) who falls for an already attached art director (Ruby Sparks’ Zoe Kazan) — is Radcliffe’s “first foray into the 21st century,” he notes. To prep, he boned up on his genre faves: When Harry Met Sally…, It Happened One Night, and Arthur with Dudley Moore. READ FULL STORY

'Kill Your Darlings' director discusses the nude scenes he cut out... and the one he put back on Blu-ray -- EXCLUSIVE

kill-your-darlings.jpg

For Kill Your Darlings, first-time director John Krokidas finagled a spectacular Young Hollywood cast to echo the gathering of Allen Ginsberg and other young Beat poets at Columbia University before they became famous. Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, Ben Foster, Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston, and Elizabeth Olsen play the coterie of ambitious free thinkers whose mission to rewrite the rules of literature is dramatically impacted by a real-life murder in 1944.

For the lead role of Ginsberg, Krokidas turned to Radcliffe, who won over the young director by insisting on auditioning even though the Harry Potter star could probably have had the role with just a nod. “We did a couple of scenes from the script and a couple of improvs, and it was just one of those moments where I saw all of these colors come out of him that I hadn’t seen previously in his work [as] the one character that we’d known him for,” says Krokidas. “I just saw the character that I had been writing for so many years come to life in front of me.”

DeHaan plays Lucien Carr, the magnetic but troubled ringleader of the group who catches Ginsberg’s eye — as well as the obsessive devotion of a former mentor, David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall).

The film debuted at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, attracting headlines and causing some clutched pearls as “Harry Potter” portrayed a famous gay man experiencing his intellectual and sexual awakening. Just imagine if Krokidas had kept in the nude scenes that left absolutely nothing to the imagination!

Below, in addition to a deleted scene from the Blu-ray release (out March 18), the young director discusses why DeHaan was the perfect Lucien Carr, which cast member became his unofficial therapist, and why he cut out several instances of male frontal nudity — and which racy scene can be seen on the Blu-ray.
