In the interview, Radcliffe said "Part of me wants to shake up people's perception of me, just shove me in a blender -- I hope people will stop and think, 'Maybe he can do something other than Harry." Also according to the article, Radcliffe will play "a troubled young man with a religious-erotic obsession with horses" in the drama and will also perform nude during one scene. Ok, a little creepy, but I'll press on.
I guess one way to prove you can do something else and shatter people's perceptions of you could be to perform nude on stage. It's either going to work out great for him or go down in history as another huge mistake like the Pam and Tommy video or Paris Hilton's acting career. How about it Harry Potter fans, is this a good move for young Mister Radcliffe?
