Holy hunk o' Hogwarts, look at Daniel Radcliffe's hair!
No, we do NOT mean those funky horns on his head!
We're talking about those curly clumps of wonderful chest hair poking through his shirt!
It's like we died and went to
heaven Burt Reynolds' home!!
The pride of Gryffindor grew up to be quite the handsome thespian, eh?
He sipped Frappucinos in Canada earlier today while shooting Horns — a new sci-fi/fantasy flick based on the popular Joe Hill book!
It's great to see Danny Boy out of the Harry Potter shadow and stepping into his own!

How wild would it be if Stephen King wrote an episode that Charlie Sheen directed???
Horror fans should be VERY excited to learn that Stephen King is currently in talks to write an episode of The Walking Dead.
According to King himself, The Walking Dead executive producer Frank Darabont "has expressed enthusiastic interest for season 2 or possibly 3.”
If the deal goes through, it looks like King would write the episode with his aspiring horror-writer son Joe Hill.
How sweet! We'd love to see this happen.
Let's just hope that other writers get a chance to work on this season as well. It's a VERY legit concern after last season…
Would U like to see Stephen King write an episode of The Walking Dead? Will it influence your decision to watch the show?

Looks like Jesse Mac is really making a name for himself in the acting world!
Actor/singer/hottie Jesse McCartney has landed himself a major role on Fox's new pilot Locke & Key.
The show is based on a Joe Hill comic about Nina Locke and her three children, who return to their Massachusetts home after Nina's husband is murdered, where they are "pestered by an evil entity that's determined to hold the family hostage one way or another until it gets what it wants."
Best thing about this show - Jesse's charater uses music as a means of escape, so we can expect to hear plenty of that lovely voice of his. Hooray!
Congrats on the new show, Jesse! We can't wait to see it.
Will U watch Jesse Mac on this upcoming Fox pilot?

And we hope it's good or else it's just a shizload of nepotism!
Steven Spielberg is looking to turn Joe Hill's Locke & Key comic series into a TV series.
The comic, which is written by Stephen King's son, follows three kids that end up watching over a haunted New England mansion that is filled with mystical doors that transport them to different locals and give them special powers.
Dreamworks TV is teaming up with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci of Fringe fame and writer/exec producer Josh Friedman for the project.
Would U watch?!

Did you know that Stephen King has a son who also writes horror novels?!
Neither did we! And neither did a lot of other people!
As we understand it, Joe Hill, author of Heart-Shaped Box and the recently released Horns, is actually the son of the famous author, but in order to be taken seriously as a writer, he has kept this fact a secret while selling his work.
In a recent interview, he explains how he spent years trying to sell his work, first with more "mainstream fiction" and then segwaying into his father's genre, under a pseudonym so that he could get work on his own merit. It took him over 10 years to finally sell something, but now that he finally has recognition all his own, he's finally ready to admit his famous literary connection. He says:
“I really believe that had I come out as Joseph King, and I wrote a mediocre work of fiction, there would be a danger that a publisher would have published it just because they saw a chance to make a buck on the last name…There were things I needed to learn about [the craft of writing] that I hadn’t done yet."
