Guess Who?

Can you guess who this sexy dude with a magical past is?

Well, if you haven't heard. It's Harry Potter. Or his real life persona Daniel (Dan the Man) Radcliffe. Barely out of the glow of the Harry Potter series and Radcliffe is trying to shed his magical mould and the fan base, mostly kids, that made him so popular and dare I say a little rich.

Radcliffe will be the lead in the upcoming (February) play, at the West End Stage in London, titled Equus. Written by Peter Shaffer it is touted around the internet as a story about a boy who doesn't just love horses, but "loves" horses. Apparently, Radcliffe does a full frontal nude scene at some point during the show. Similar to the image below maybe? Except without the bottom cut off.

Actually, this is how they describe the plot at the theatre's official website: "Alan Strang seems a normal, obedient 17-year old with a passion for horses. Then one night he blinds six horses with a hoof pick. What drove him to it? His life seems routine, his family loving, his pursuits harmless and yet he has been placed under psychiatric surveillance - an unresponsive patient who is woken each night by terrible nightmares. Only psychiatrist Martin Dysart seems able to grasp the answer to this psychological puzzle."

What are your thoughts? Am I just being a prude. Sure I admit he looks good. But he's 17. I shouldn't be thinking how good he looks and he shouldn't be posing for pictures that make others think/feel the same way. I'm kind of disappointed he didn't take the moral high ground for at least a year or two.

Do you know, I don't like it. First of all I think his head looks too big for his body, but most of all, I agree with you. Too much, too soon, young Harry.

He already did the 'shocking' part in Extras and, though it was funny, I think he should perhaps wait until he's done with Master Potter before he goes all out to Become A Man in the eyes of the public.

Also - ew - who'd want to see that play? Sounds disturbing.
