Posted on July 30th, 2013 with Comments Off on James McAvoy added to cast of Frankenstein / Old photo shoots
In the current glut of Frankenstein projects rushing to be the first to make it into production, and thus take advantage of the droves of ravenous fans clamoring for multiple new adaptations of Mary Shelley’s classic novel, Max Landis’ script inches closer to the finish line. James McAvoy is in negotiations for the role of Victor Von Frankenstein, after beating out Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston—who must’ve really hurt his mysterious vibe with those convivial beer commercials— and Toby Kebbel. McAvoy joins the previously announced Daniel Radcliffe, who is attempting to further shake off his Harry Potter trappings by starring as Igor. Push and Lucky Number Slevin director Paul McGuigan is slated to direct.

Posted on July 22nd, 2013 with Comments Off on Daniel Radcliffe turns super skinny look for play
Los Angeles: ‘Harry Potter’ star Daniel Radcliffe has been sporting a skinny look for a demanding theatre role. The 23-year-old actor, who was spotted leaving the Noel Coward Theatre on July 18, was looking tired, pale and skinny and has sparked fears for his health, reported Us magazine.
His representative has revealed that his appearance is all down due to his role in the Martin McDonagh play ‘The Cripple of Inishmaan’, which is currently playing at the Noel Coward theatre.
“It is a very demanding role, physically. At every night’s performance, there is a large crowd at the stage door and he takes the time to sign autographs and pose for pictures at length,” the representative added.
Posted on July 22nd, 2013 with Comments Off on Dan to return for second series of A young Doctor’s Notebook
Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm have agreed to return for a second series of A Young Doctor’s Notebook & Other Stories, Sky Arts have announced.
Both actors will reprise their roles from the first series of the comedy drama, which forms part of Playhouse Presents… on Sky Arts. Inspired by the autobiographical short stories of the Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov, Hamm plays a doctor during the Russian Revolution, with Radcliffe again portraying the doctor’s younger self.
Radcliffe, who admitted that he “could not wait to commence filming this summer” and describes himself as “an obsessive Bulgakov reader” said: “I had absolutely no hesitation in agreeing to do a second series of A Young Doctor’s Notebook.
“I had an incredible time working with the multi talented Jon Hamm and of course am a huge fan of Mikhail Bulgakov’s work and so was thrilled when I was told a second series had been commissioned.”
Hamm, who recently appeared in the sixth series of Mad Men, said: “I’m thrilled to come back to our wonderful, weird, wild world of A Young Doctor’s Notebook. Series one was an absolute blast to work on and I’m looking forward to continuing this bizarre adventure.”
Posted on June 19th, 2013 with Comments Off on TCOI: What the press are saying?
The London Theatre Guide has a positive review of The Cripple of Inishmaan:
Daniel Radcliffe proves highly convincing in two distinct ways. First, he ably describes a young man whose mobility is constrained by physical disabilities. Additionally, he gives us a Billy who, in every other respect, is an ordinary young man with the aspirations and needs of others of his age. Though Mr Radcliffe deservedly wins our sympathy, he certainly doesn’t get all our attention given the array of extraordinary characters. There are uniformly excellent and distinctive performances from all the cast, but I particularly enjoyed Ingrid Craigie and Gillian Hanna as Billy’s aunties, June Watson as Johnnypateenmike’s alcoholic mother, and Sarah Greene’s irascible and violently cantankerous Helen.
Here are some highlights from other press reviews of The Cripple Of Inishmaan. It seemingly is all positive about Dan’s performance.
“Daniel Radcliffe…fine performance in the title role…The piece is theatrically effective, outstandingly acted and often disgracefully funny… I just wish the play itself wasn’t such a thoroughly nasty piece of work. ” Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph
“Michael Grandage’s highly adroit revival of this dark, politically incorrect 1997 comedy by Martin McDonagh…Grandage’s assured production skilfully disguises the predictable unpredictability of the plot twists…But, for my taste, McDonagh’s play wants too much to have its soda bread and eat it. ” Paul Taylor for The Independent
“While Radcliffe is the production’s big draw, there’s a strong sense of ensemble in Michael Grandage’s polished revival of Martin McDonagh’s mid-Nineties play. ” Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
“It’s a knowing play but one which [Daniel] Radcliffe invests with a sense of real feeling. With his twisted left arm and inflexible left leg, he suggests Billy’s disability without overstating it. Radcliffe also has the precious gift, vital in a play full of narrative surprises, of seeming artful and vulnerable at the same time.” Michael Billington for The Guardian
