DanRad Wanted To Be A Stand-Up Comedian

| Filed under: Daniel RadcliffeHarry Potter

Okay, tell us if you've heard this one before…

A young actor thinks he's got what it takes to be a stand-up comedian, so he tries out his schtick with his costars on a major blockbuster movie and they tell him, politely as they can, that he stinks.

Oh, no punchline, that's just the story Harry Potter's Robbie Coltrane told about Daniel Radcliffe this week.

Apparently, the boy who lived LIVED for the day when he could try his hand at being a stand-up comedian. Robbie explained that in between takes on the set of one of the earlierHarry Potter films, DanRad would try out a joke or two with his fellow actors. It didn't go as well as he'd hoped. Robbie recalls:

"Well, my favorite thing is his terrible jokes. He went through a period, do you remember about three years ago, when he decided he was going to become a stand-up comedian? He'd tell me jokes that my father told me about 50 years ago. And I'd go, 'Timing, Dan. Better timing in that'. But they were terribly funny because he was so earnest. He's always been terribly earnest and determined to get it right. He'd say, 'You'll love this one. You'll love this one'. And I'd go, 'OK, yeah'."

LOLZ! Sounds like he should stick to wire-rimmed glasses and Broadway musicals!

But who knows? After his Harry Potter money dries up, maybe he should give it a go. When do you supposed that'll be? 50, 60 years from now?

Daniel Radcliffe is featured in the April/May issue of Gotham magazine looking like a normal 21 year old.

It's hard to believe it was only 10 years ago that he was an 11 year old Harry Potter.

They grow up so fast!

Check Out Some DanRad Broadway Action!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesDaniel Radcliffe

Take a gander at the video above to see some cool b-roll footage of Daniel Radcliffe's new home on Broadway, the show How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying!

There's a good amount of footage there, and to us it looks like he's up there having fun and being adorbs! While his singing is definitely passable, we think that his dancing is where he really shines!

Our verdict so far is good, but not great. Though we still support him! He's new at it, so he could totally get better with time!

Hope you're having a blast, Dan!

Candy Spelling Says New Book Will NOT Trash Tori

| Filed under: Daniel RadcliffeTori SpellingCandy Spelling

Candy Spelling Mama Drama

That's a relief!

It would be such a shame if rumors were true that Candy Spelling's new book she is busy shopping around trashed her own daughter, Tori Spelling.

Luckily, Candy is insisting these allegations are "simply not true."

Instead of dishing on her rocky relationship with Tori, Candy said:

"It's about me starting to work for the first time after I turned 60 and my husband passed away."

The core of the book seems to be about her yearning for accomplishment, as she said:

"Everyone in my family has done something. My husband Aaron was the most prolific TV producer of all time, and my daughter is the queen of reality shows. So I thought I would really like to dabble in producing musicals and then I got so hooked."

Dabble she did! Candy is producing the Broadway revival of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying starring Daniel Radcliffe!

While discussing the rampant rumors about her troubled relationship with Tori, she explained:

"It's very hurtful when people say mean things about my daughter and me. There was a time when things were rocky between us, and we worked that out, and I'm going to be on her reality show."

Good! We're happy to hear you two have patched things up and hope you continue to grow closer!

Are U innerested in reading Candy Spelling's new book?

Will DanRad Bring His Success To The Big Screen?

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesFilm FlickersDaniel Radcliffe

daniel-radcliffe-succeed-business.jpg

The reviews are in and much more rather than less, people are really digging Daniel Radcliffe on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

But what does the future hold? If the show really takes off on Broadway, is there a chance DanRad would follow the show to the big screen for a movie remake? Let's find out!

After his opening night performance, Dan revealed to sources his thoughts on the show becoming a movie again, saying:

“The producers of the show would not be doing their jobs properly if they were not at this moment in time talking about the possibility of a How to Succeed movie. I, however, am just focused on the next year of my life, basically. A lot of things would have to be right for it to happen. In terms of the script, I think it’s very hard to adapt. But, you know, nor am I going to rule out the possibility, because I don’t want to be presented with a brilliant script and say, ‘Oh, well, I said no to the press.’ It’s just something I’m not even thinking about.”

Point taken…and we agree.

Right now, you've got to stay focused on getting your swagger and sway in check, your voice in tune and your smile sparkling for eight shows a week.

Next time we're in town, we're definitely going to try and squeeze in a show…or two! Ha!

Potterheads! Freak Out! The New Poster For The Last Harry Potter Film Is Here!

| Filed under: Film FlickersDaniel RadcliffeHarry Potter

harry-potter-poster.jpg

Feel that? Yeah, THAT. Those are mixed emotions you are dealing with.

On the one hand, this newly released poster for the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows - Part 2 makes you want to scream with elation and joyous rapture as it's totally rad AND you're finally beginning to realize you have but four short months before it'll land in theaters.

Then again, you're also realizing that this is the end and you'll never feel this kind of thrill ever again.

So bittersweet…but still, so AAAAAH-MAZING! We're pumped!

Thoughts, Potterheads? What do U think of the poster?

Dan Rad Rad's Up The Stage!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesDaniel Radcliffe

DanRad Does Well On Broadway!

Daniel Radcliffe has had a successful first night on Broadway with his starring role in the popular How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying!

The very first reviews all seem to be positive for him, so that's FAB! Especially when it was a pretty big task to take over a show that first debuted in 1961! Impressive!

Dan had this to say:

“I am so much more comfortable out of my comfort zone. To me there’s no point in doing it if it’s not a challenge, particularly at this stage in my career. I’ve got plenty of years later if I want to sit back and take it easy if I can. Now is not the time.”

We hear that, Dan! We don't want you going anywhere!

Congrats on your great opening!

Will U be seeing DanRad on stage soon??
