Well this onscreen reunion is going to be one Grand Ole Party!
Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan, who played lovers in last year’s Kill Your Darlings, are being tapped to team up once again in the new movie College Republicans!
Daniel is reportedly on board to play conservative mastermind Lee Atwater in the true story of how he helped a young Karl Rove rise to the rank of chairman of the College Republican National Committee! Dane is believed to be playing the part of Karl.
Consider that for just a second…
Last year, Daniel and Dane played Allen Ginsberg and Lucien Carr, two real life Beat Generation members who believed in sex, drugs, and an alternative lifestyle!
Um, yeah. That’s basically the complete opposite of the Republican Party that Lee and Karl helped form!
The common thread on these films though is John Krokidas, who directed Kill Your Darlings and is also at the helm of College Republicans.
Should this new flick be as well received as KYD was last year, not only will it make John 2 for 2 as a film maker, it’ll prove even further how much range Daniel Radcliffe really has!
Harry Potter no more!
Our fingers are crossed that this picture goes according to plan!
