Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple are both 25-year-old London natives who have worked consistently for over a decade now in Hollywood – and to great acclaim – but the genre-bending Horns marks their first collaboration together. The actors wrapped shooting Horns nearly two years ago – and have been touring with it ever since, with stops at the Toronto International Film Festival, San Diego Comic-Con, and Austin’s Fantastic Fest.

Daniel Radcliffe’s real nemesis is tap water. Last night on Conan, Radcliffe revealed how he accidentally poisoned himself on the set of his new movie Horns (in select theaters now). Horns, based on the bestselling dark fantasy novel, was filmedin Canada during the winter, and the water on set was laced with antifreeze to prevent the pipes from freezing. “I drank a full cup of nonpotable water – so I guess like, half anti-freeze,” Radcliffe told host Conan O’Brien. In Horns, Radcliffe plays a DJ who sprouts goat-like horns and develops strange powers after his girlfriend (played by Juno Temple) is mysteriously murdered.
Daniel Radcliffe won the Internet, as they say, last week when his fierce rendition of Blackalicious’s underground rap classic “Alphabet Aerobics” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon went viral. Obviously, we had to ask him about this feat that wowed the Weasley out of us when he stopped by Yahoo Studios for a round of our trivia game Know Your Co-Star with his Horns love interest Juno Temple (which you can see on Yahoo Movies later this week).
A look back at actors who came to fame through huge movie franchises — and how they fared in their projects that followed
Daniel Radcliffe is known for being one of the most calm and candid actors in show business — especially when it comes to dealing with the press. It’s also found Radcliffe drawing strong reviews for his work on stage, including starring roles in the revivals of both Equus (in which he went full monty) and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (in which he proved his mettle as a song-and-dance man). “It’s romantic, without being too sappy, and it’s genuinely funny,” says Radcliffe says of the film, in which he stars as a man struggling to keep from falling in love with his friend, played by (Ruby Sparks’ Zoe Kazan).
As Daniel Radcliffe demonstrates in the clip above from the upcoming film, What If, perhaps the simplest way to get rid of that pesky love-obstructer is to simply push him out the window. Radcliffe plays Wallace, a med school dropout who fancies Chantry (Zoe Kazan), only to find out she’s already with Ben (Rafe Spall).
Daniel Radcliffe has been making the most of his first Comic-Con experience. Not only was the actorserenaded with a ‘Happy Birthday’ song by 6,000-plus fans at the panel for his upcoming horror-comedy Horns, he also got into the spirit by walking around the San Diego Convention Center dressed in a Spider-Man costume. Of course, in Radcliffe’s case, the term “disguise” is more apropos. It’s becoming a regular occurrence for stars to “walk the floor” in cosplay gear, as it’d be a daunting task to brave a crowd made up of roughly 130,000 fervent pop-culture fanatics and actually be able to do anything beyond pose for pictures and sign autographs.
Daniel Radcliffe starred in eight films in the Harry Potter series, the most successful movie franchise of all time. The 6000-something fans in attendance made Radcliffe feel at home as moderator Dave Karger (Fandango) led them in serenading the actor with a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ (Radcliffe turned 25 two days ago). Radcliffe was joined by Horns director Alexandre Aja and novelist Joe Hill.
In the forthcoming romantic-comedy What If, Daniel Radcliffe stars as a med-school dropout who becomes smitten with a wise-cracking, ping-pong-playing gal, played by Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks). But when he learns she already has a boyfriend, he attempts to get out of the friend-zone and win her over, with a little help from his friend, a nacho-loving, advice-spewing ne’er do well, played by Girls star Adam Driver. We’ve got the exclusive first trailer for the film — which opens Aug. 1 — as well as a chat with Radcliffe, in which he talks about messy relationships, iffy nude scenes, and what he thinks of the next Harry Potter film: What If raises the age-old question of whether or not men and women can just be friends. Daniel Radcliffe: I’ve got loads of female friends, but I think it’s a different question when sexual or romantic attractions come into play.
On the movie poster, “Kill Your Darlings " is billed as "a true story of obsession and murder." While we certainly don’t condone the latter, when it comes to Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan, we can understand where one might become obsessive. To help feed your obsession, and to celebrate this week’s Blu-ray release of “Kill Your Darlings” — the smoke-filled murder mystery set among formative Beat hipsters Allen Ginsberg (Radcliffe), Lucien Carr (DeHaan), Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston), and William Burroughs (Ben Foster) — we’re doing a giveaway! Five lucky Yahoo Movies Twitter followers will each receive a “Kill Your Darlings” Blu-ray and a poster signed by Radcliffe and DeHaan!
