Daniel Radcliffe has said goodbye to playing Harry Potter, but in his new film role the 22-year-old actor looks very similar to a grown up version of the boy wizard. Well, a grown up Harry with a 1950s hair cut and a new pair of specs.
Dan will play gay Beat Generation writer Allen Ginsberg in artsy new movie Kill Your Darlings, and he has been spotted filming in New York with his co-star Dane DeHanne. We actually think Dan looks really cute rocking this reto hipster look.
The papers used to say I had a gay face
This will be another edgy role for Dan as the Beat Generation writers experimented with their sexuality and drugs *shockedface*! What would Hermione say!? Dan himself is used to speculation about his sexuality, and the millionaire actor has admitted that he found the media’s suggestion that he’s gay funny.
“I had to smile when stories emerged questioning whether I was gay. Obviously I knew I wasn’t but people were curiously desperate to suggest I was.
“The papers used to say I had a gay face, whatever that is, or a gay voice but it simply wasn’t true. Now I have a girlfriend so I’m guessing everyone finally believes me. When you know a gay guy has a crush on you it’s the most flattering thing.”
Are you excited to see Daniel in another non-Potter role?
