Dirty Harry

Okay, am I the only person who finds this photograph of Daniel Radcliffe just a little ......scheezy? I don't think I am. This is from the latest issue of Details Magazine of which Daniel also appears on the cover (looking quite a bit better than this). I just think they are trying too hard to get him out of the Harry Potter image. The article slightly focuses on his work on the latest Harry Potter film, as well as his role in the Peter Shaffer play Equus where Daniel (now 18) appeared nude on stage. At the same time though, the interviewer seems more interested in asking him about losing his virginity and the size of his "wand" as they refer to it (which is average size according to the article), than what he is working on. I agree that actors (especially young actors) should do all that they can to keep themselves from being typecast as one specific type of character, and I think that Daniel has been making good choices in his career of late, but at the same time, do you really want to be photographed looking like you're two blocks away from your leather daddy orgy club meeting? It's good to show you're growing up, but this is a little much

Lose the vest and the porn-stache and dress like a normal teenager okay? It's not as sexy as they're telling you it will look.
