YouTube channel screenjunkies spent 20 hours of their lives watching all eight Harry Potter movies to create the Harry Potter honest trailer.
As a Harry Potter fan myself, it’s pretty hilarious and hits a lot of great points. Obviously I have to address some, so watch the video above then click the READ MORE button to see my thoughts on the whole thing.
Despite being in one the most popular franchises of our generation, Daniel Radcliffe has continuously proved to us that he can stay relevant. From starring on Broadway to completely transforming into Allen Ginsberg to critical acclaim in Kill Your Darlings, the most important thing that makes DRad awesome and amazing is that he’s remained very true to himself.
In fact, he’s so grounded, that he’s even made a video for fans to show them how they can be JUST LIKE HIM.
But while he’s appreciative of his fans, it turns out that it takes a bit of effort to not let the fame get to his head. Hiring a man named Jake to keep him grounded, what ensues turns out to be a lot of jealousy on Dan’s part…
But to be fair, Dan HAS worked with greats such as Maggie Smith and Gary Oldman. I think he can show off just a little bit…
Watch the video here:
Nope. You did not read that wrong. Because the picture above just proves it.
Fans of Mad Men and Harry Potter will be delighted to see that Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe are filming a four-part comedy series together called A Young Doctor’s Notebook.
The series, which will air on Britain’s Sky Arts channel, will feature semi-autobiographical tales taken from playwright Mikhail Bulgakov’s own experiences working as a provincial doctor during the beginning of the Russian Revolution in 1917. Radcliffe, will play the younger version of Russian medic Dr. Vladimir Bomgard, who has funny exchanges with his older self, played by Hamm.
While I wasn’t sure about Radcliffe’s resemblance to Hamm, these pictures certainly throw my doubts away. Side by side, they actually look a lot alike! (And can we mention a scene where the two will be in a bathtub together?!)
Okay, but seriously. I can’t wait to see how this series turns out. Nice to see Radcliffe branching out in interesting roles! (SOURCE)
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Daniel Radcliffe parties like he’s Bill Murray and Kanye West made a few sex tapes.
HIT: Daniel Radcliffe parties with an Irish soccer team like a boss
Daniel Radcliffe pulled a Bill Murray and thus, making him “Awesome Person of the Week.” Apparently, Radcliffe was walking around Dublin, Ireland at 4 a.m. when he ran into Dublin’s minor Gaelic Football team. The team just came off of winning the All Ireland title and they invited Radcliffe to join in on the festivities. Radcliffe hung out with their team at a house party for two hours and was even drinking out of their trophy. Now I can truly say I want to party like a wizard.
MISS: Kanye West might have two sex tapes floating around
TMZ is reporting that not one, but TWO, sex tapes with Kanye are being shopped around. Apparently, one of the ladies Kanye was with looks like Kim Kardashian. Obviously, that revelation has sparked rumours that it is Kim in the videos and was filmed while she was supposedly still with Kris Humphries. Ew! Why? This is just another piece of Kanye-Kim info I did not need to know. Ever.
HIT: Lil’ Wayne opens skate park in New Orleans
When he’s not making weird depositions in court, Lil’ Wayne can often be found skating. It would only make sense for Lil’ Wayne to have his own skatepark. Instead of making one in his own backyard, the rapper decided to open a public skatepark in his hometown of New Orleans. His Trukstop park was constructed within a building that survived Hurricane Katrina and will be opened to the public seven days a week. Thanks to Wayne, the skate-obsessed youths of New Orleans now have a new place to skate without risking running into the cops.
MISS: Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong checks into rehab after Bieber flip-out
Green Day front-man Billie Joe Armstrong had a bit of a freak out at a iHeartRadio Music festival in Las Vegas last week. Armstrong was given the one-minute warning mark which prompted him to start a expletive-laced tirade, including, “What the f*ck! I’m not f*cking Justin Bieber, you mother*ckers.” Apparently, he was drinking a lot before Green Day’s set and has since checked into a rehab facility as of Sunday. Hopefully Armstrong can conquer living with his addiction. We’d all like to hear some more Green Day.
HIT: photos of an 18-year-old Victoria Beckham surface
Photos of a pre-Spice Girls Victoria Beckham have been making its round on the internet and holy hell, does she look good! Beckham obviously doesn’t have the modeling skills she has now, but she still looks really cute. With both mom and dad’s good looks, the photos cement the fact that little baby Harper Beckham will be quite a stunner when she grows up.
MISS: Paris Hilton was caught on tape making ignorant comments
Paris Hilton might as well pretend she’s filming The Simple Life 24/7 because she keeps getting caught doing stupid things. This time, a cab driver taped Hilton saying some pretty ignorant things about gay men. The heiress was with an openly gay model who was trying to explain Grindr, an app gay men use to find hook-ups. “Ewww. Eww. To get fucked?,” she was taped saying. “Gay guys are the horniest people in the world… They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.” While she’s since released an apology, I haven’t taken anything she’s done seriously since episode one of The Simple Life.
Looks like Rupert Grint isn’t the only Harry Potter star acting in music videos.
Featured in indie band Slow Club’s music video for their single “Beginners”, Radcliffe plays the type of drunk you wouldn’t want to mess with in the pub.
Shot in slow motion, the video features the former Harry Potter star wearing a super stylin’ floral shirt and lip-synching with a pained expression while taking in shots of alcohol.
According to Metro UK, Charles Watson of Slow Club said, “After meeting him (Radcliffe) for the first time we were pretty blown away by how much he knew about our songs and when the time came to make a video, the director Lucy Needs had the script ready and thought it couldn’t hurt to ask.”
Radcliffe, who previously revealed that he had a drinking problem, has since dealt with his issue.
“The drinking was unhealthy and damaging to my body and my social life. That’s beyond question,” he recalled in an earlier interview. “I was living in constant fear of who I’d meet, what I might have said to them, what I might have done with them, so I’d stay in my apartment for days and drink alone.”
Glad to know Daniel has since resolved his problems.
And to see him giving such an amazing performance like this in a music video, it’s exciting to see what he has in store next.
As someone who practically grew up on a film set, it’s easy for Daniel Radcliffe to relate to his younger co-workers. In his latest movie, The Woman In Black, Dan traded his Hogwarts uniform for a totally new role as a Dad. It’s not as far fetched as it may seem. Although he’s only twenty-two years old, the film takes place in an era where most people were having babies in their teens. What really makes The Woman In Black believable is Mr. Radcliffe’s acting (we say Mr. Because he’s a father now). So what’s the key to playing a convincing father? Dan tells us about his “get off the shed” voice.
Daniel Radcliffe, most famous for his role as Harry Potter recently confessed his love for Ryan Gosling. Get in line, Dan Rad!
When speaking to Attitude Magazine, Daniel, the star of the new “The Woman in Black” movie said Gosling is his celeb crush.
“I have a talent crush on Ryan Gosling. I think he’s fantastic and you know he’d be nice afterwards. He seems smart. If I was gay, I would go for a smart man,” he says.
If the two ever get cast in the same movie together, looks like Eva Mendes better watch her back.
Daniel Radcliffe is back with his new movie The Woman In Black. It’s a bone chilling remake of a film from the ’80s. Ironically, Daniel actually scares very easily but he’s not afraid of ghosts. In this interview he tells us what really gives him the creeps.
Daniel Radcliffe just stopped by our studio for a live interview. He’s in town to promote his new film “The Woman in Black”. It’s unlike any film he’s ever made before. It’s suspenseful and at times, very scary.
Daniel mentioned in the interview he scares very easily. He recalls watching “Jumanji” when he was a kid and being very afraid of the eight-foot tall spiders.
Watch the interview below and find how how Daniel prepared for his new role and how he feels about being followed by the paparazzi.
Daniel Radcliffe, who you may have heard of from the Harry Potter franchise, will be live on andPOP Thursday January 26 at 1:40pm EST. The interview will take place from a secret location, but Daniel will be talking about his new movie, The Woman in Black, and taking fan questions via phone , Tweets, and Facebook messages live.
Here’s a sneak peek at Daniel’s new film which opens February 3.
However, for “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe, he has a completely different take on her t.v. flop. He, after all, hosted the show Lana appeared on. So, he seems more of a trustworthy commentator.
Daniel says it’s unfortunate that the same people who sang her praises all over the internet for the past few months are the same people who are ripping her apart for one off-key performance.
“I also think people are making it about things other than the performance. If you read what people are saying about her online, it’s all about her past and her family and stuff that’s nobody else’s business,” he told reporters.
Daniel hit the nail on the head with this comment. In other televised appearances Lana sounded nothing short of beautiful. Since SNL was her big American debut, perhaps the nerves got the best of her. We need to cut her a break and not be so harsh — it’s not like she pulled an Ashlee Simpson! She tried her best and it sounded horrible. But at least she tried. There’s always tomorrow, as they say in Hollywood.
Hundreds of fans gathered the streets of New York, cheering on their favourite stars like, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton and many more as they bid their farewells to the wizarding world, reported People.
Watson, who rocked a Bottega Veneta gown, admitted she was feeling emotional but didn’t shed a tear unlike last weeks premiere in London where she cried. Must have been the waterproof mascara she was wearing.
For Radcliffe, “It’s been an exciting, bizarre, wonderful 10 years.”
This may as well be the last time the entire cast will be seen together on the red carpet howeever, the real ending is July 15th when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 hits theatres.
Daniel Radcliffe (who of course plays Harry Potter) told People that he has been sober since August 2010, but he was developing a serious problem.
“I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff,” he said. “There were a few years there when I was just so enamored with the idea of living some sort of famous person’s lifestyle that really isn’t suited to me.”
So how did his addiction stay out of the public view?
“I really got away with that because there were so many instances when a paparazzi shot like that could have been taken,” he explained regarding his visibly intoxicated bouts.
Emma Watson looks stunning on Vogue’s July cover next month. She’s one of the few that can pull off the short hair look, and is definitely rocking it here. It’s a fresh change from Vogue’s usual boring covers – it’s risky, it’s eye-catching, and it’s unique.
In the magazine, the actress reveals that James Franco and Daniel Radcliffe have both been huge supporters in times of trouble.
Franco was apparently a huge help on how to get an education while maintaing a career as an actor.
“It was such a relief to speak to someone who is trying to do the same thing I’m doing,” she told the magazine. “I talked to him about juggling studying and making films and going backward and forward. He’s not afraid or limited by what he fears people will say about it.”
Meanwhile, Radcliffe was apparently playing Cupid to her recent flames.
“We would help each other with relationship advice,” Radcliffe says. “Particularly funny were the moments when we would help each other compose texts to the most recent flames in either of our lives (not too flirty, but not too subtle either!).”
“It was certainly a case of the blind leading the blind, but it was extremely funny.”
Watson is a true class act, and she looks gorgeous here. Well done, Vogue.
Daniel Radcliffe is set to perform at the Tony Awards this year, reports CTV.
If you’re anxious to see the ‘Harry Potter’ star sing and dance, be sure to tune in at the beginning of the show on Sunday, as he is slated for an early performance.
Says Radcliffe: “I think we’re one of the first, if not the first.” Yikes, he better set the bar high then!
Radcliffe will be performing the song ‘Brotherhood of Man’ from his current Broadway show ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.’
The actor unfortunately did not receive a Tony nomination, but fellow co-stars John Larroquette and Tammy Blanchard are up for awards.
“If John won it would be just amazing,” he says. “Only because I have a lot of scenes with him.”
Radcliffe last starred in the play ‘Equus,’ where he received major buzz due to his full-frontal nude scenes.
I’m excited to see this side of him. We all know he can act, but the question is, can he sing a dance as well? Is he a triple threat?
‘Harry Potter’ star Daniel Radcliffe is the richest actor under 30, reports CTV.
The actor, who recently finished filming his run of ‘Potter’ films, made £28.5 million ($45 million) in 2009-10, pushing his net worth to about £48 million ($75 million).
The 21-year-old is not the only ‘Harry Potter’ actor to appear in The Sunday Times Rich List of young people. Emma Watson comes in at 13 with earnings of £2 million, pushing her total up to £22 million, joint with Rupert Grint.
Radcliffe is now currently appearing in the Broadway musical ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.’
Other stars who made the list include ‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson, who came in at number nine worth a total of £32 million, narrowly beating Keira Knightley, whose net work is £30 million – putting her at number 10.
Princes William and Harry came in one place after Keira thanks to their inheritance from their late mother Diana and land owning. Wow, the thought of royalty being worth less than a vampire in a really bad movie frightens me.
Here is The Sunday Times’ Rich Top 10 List of the 50 Richest Young People:
1. Thomas Persson, Fashion, £700 million
2. Robin Arora, Retail, £343 million
3. Fawn and India Rose James, Property, £302 million

While Daniel Radcliffe’s acting career continues to flourish on Broadway in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”, the Harry Potter star is set to star in a period-thriller film called “The Woman in Black”.
With the release of the film’s trailer, Radcliffe stars as a young lawyer who travels to a remote village on business and finds himself in the sights of the ghost of a scorned woman with vengeance on her mind.
The British thriller, directed by James Watkins, is set to be Radcliffe’s first film after the Harry Potter series. The film is planned to hit American theaters sometime in the fall.
The last installment of the Harry Potter film series,”Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″, will be released nationwide on July 15.
Seeing from the trailer, I think it’s wonderful that Radcliffe is taking risks in his roles. Showing that he has the versatility to play different roles, perhaps Radcliffe can prove to audiences that he’s more than just “the guy who played Harry Potter.”
Daniel Radcliffe seems to be making a habit of wearing bras. First he shows one off on Broadway and now he is showing it off in the promo for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I.”
“Look away, I’m hideous,” he says in the clip upon seeing himself dressed that way.
And according to MTV News, Radcliffe was a little emotional at the end of filming.
“I didn’t expect myself to get particularly emotional, but I did, as I’m sure you’ll see on the DVD extras, because we were filmed weeping like children,” he said.
Throughout most of the day, Radcliffe was able to keep his emotions at bay. It was only until he was approached by producers David Heyman and David Barron, that he was unable to contain his emotions.
“They came up and said, ‘How are you feeling? How are you doing?’” Radcliffe said. “And I couldn’t find any words, and I just said, ‘I just want you to know, I’ve had a really nice time.’ And it was such a young, quite innocent, sweet thing to say, that I kind of caught myself off guard. That was the moment when I suddenly had a lump in my throat and was like, ‘OK, I’m really going to have to struggle to keep it together on the last shot,’ which was a stunt, very simple, just jumping and rolling onto a map.”
And yes, obviously Radcliffe nailed the jump and roll. And he also made it through the rest of the shoot.
Then, “they said, ‘That’s a wrap.’ It just felt weird,” Radcliffe said.
Before the emotions really sunk in, Radcliffe had to head to New York at the end of the day to be a presenter at the Tony Awards. Meaning, the poor wizard didn’t get to go out with his fellow wizards on the day they finally finished shooting the “Potter” series.
“That wasn’t the official wrap party,” Radcliffe said. “That was just everybody going out and getting crazy drunk. The wrap party we’ll have will be sometime in the next two weeks, which will be exciting.”
“It will be very sad when it comes to a finishing,” Radcliffe said. “But it’s something you have to accept.”
The first “Deathly Hallows” film will not hit movie theatres until November of this year, and the second film will arrive in July 2011. So, the fans will not have to worry about saying goodbye to Harry Potter for quite some time.
However, Radcliffe has already begun to say the goodbyes to some of his co-stars. He has been with some of them for past nine years.
