Daniel Radcliffe's NYT Magazine Cover Nominated for ASME Award
Underneath the neon headline ("Harry Who?") is a black and white portrait of a behooded, scraggly Daniel Radcliffe, looking about as distant as he possibly could from the boy wizard who made him a household name. This is the New York Times Magazine cover (October 2013) that is currently nominated for an award from the American Society of Magazine Editors. Radcliffe's cover is up against 55 others in the Entertainment and Celebrity category; readers can vote by liking the cover on Facebook here.
Radcliffe is currently set to star in The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh, to open April 20th at the Cort Theatre. Set on the remote island of Inishmaan off the west coast of Ireland, word arrives that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighbouring island of Inishmore. The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life. Martin McDonagh's comic masterpiece examines an ordinary coming of age in extraordinary circumstances and confirms his position as one of the most original Irish voices to emerge in the second half of the twentieth century. Radcliffe plays the title role in the first major London revival since its premiere at The National Theatre in 1996.
Radcliffe's other credits include David Copperfield, The Tailor of Panama, December Boys, My Boy Jack, The Woman in Black, Kill Your Darlings, Horns, and The F Word. Upcoming film projects include Frankenstein and Tokyo Vice; it was also recently announced that Radliffe will play Washington Roebling in an upcoming film about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. Radcliffe's Broadway credits include How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (J. Pierrepont Finch - Nominee, 2011 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding Actor in a Musical) and Equus (Alan Strang - Nominee, 2009 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding Actor in a Play).
