Daniel Radcliffe stars in the fantasy horror film Horns based on the novel by Joe Hill, and below we have a brand new Comic-con exclusive poster from the movie. Radcliffe will make his Comic-con debut on Friday July 25th at 1:15pm PST during the panel for the Alexandre Aja directed film, and fans couldn’t be more excited!
In other Radcliffe news, the Harry Potter star spoke with We Got This Covered while promoting his other new film, What If, in Toronto yesterday. Naturally Harry Potter came up, and they asked Daniel whether or not he’d ever consider reprising his role as Harry in possible future Harry Potter films, to which he replied:
“I don’t know. I really have no idea. I don’t know if J.K. Rowling has any plans to write anymore of the series with Harry as a central character. In the last story she wrote Harry is 35, so I’m not old enough to play that yet. Thank God, too, otherwise I’d definitely be getting asked about that. In terms of Fantastic Beasts though I definitely won’t be showing up in that.”
The actor also spoke with Elle Magazine to promote his new romantic comedy, What If, where he chatted about marriage, the friend-zone, and more:
What’s the one thing you could find in a woman’s apartment that would suggest you were incompatible?
Daniel Radcliffe: If there were a whole shelf of vegan cookery books, then I would be in trouble.
I thought you might say a Harry Potter box set.
Dan: No, you know what? A lot of people have them. That would probably be an unfair plight to put on everyone.
You previously published some poetry under a pen name. Would you share a verse you wrote for a woman?
Dan: I was writing poetry more consistently when I was 16 to 19 or 20. In that period I would have written a lot of love poems. I have none that I want to see in print on the Internet forever. [Laughs]
Do you believe in marriage?
Dan: I sort of go back and forth on it. It seems like the most romantic thing you can do is stand up in front of all your friends and say that you love this person
What If asks an age-old question: Can men and women be friends? Where do you fall?
Dan: This is two questions that often get confused as one. Can women and men be friends? Absolutely. I have tons of women friends whom I have not had sex with nor do I have the impulse to.
What’s the other question?
Dan: Can men and women who are romantically or sexually attracted to each other be friends without that ever becoming an issue? That’s a lot more difficult. Ultimately, in that situation, a conversation has to happen. For me it would, because otherwise I would go insane. That’s the big difference, I think, between me and my character in the film. He’s able to live in this very painful land of uncertainty a lot longer than I would have been able to.
You worked with so many legendary British actresses on Harry Potter. Did you ever receive any particularly good advice on women from any of them?
Dan: I actually did. I was about 16, working with Imelda Staunton. I had a girlfriend, and we’d said, “Oh, we’ll not do Valentine’s Day. Don’t do any of that.” I was relaying that to Imelda, and she told me that no matter what any girl says, “just f—ing do something.”
Do you think technology has been good or bad for dating?
Dan: I think its kind of slightly bad for everything. Your involvement is with a screen not an actual person even if the person is communicating with you through that screen. It’s like, there’s no replacement for actual human interaction. I’m probably just getting massively left behind by all technology. I just use email. I have a phone. I text loads. But I’m not on a lot of social media. I’m not on Tinder and all of that but obviously I’ve got mates who are on it.
You once said that it would be difficult to date an actress because they’re “barking.” What changed?
Dan: I was probably 18 or 19-year-old me trying to be funny in an interview and then making a sweeping generalization.
What If (Also known as ‘The F Word’) will open in New York and Los Angeles on Aug. 1, and then expand during the following two weekends.
