Daniel Radcliffe

After nearly a decade of fighting Dementors, Death Eaters and Lord Voldemort, the adventures of the The Boy Who Lived are finally coming to an end this summer with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II. With filming having been wrapped for months, Daniel Radcliffe is still moving up and on with his own career. We know the young actor will already star in the period horror film The Woman in Black, but now he has a comedy lined up. Variety reports that the British actor will star in The Amateur Photographer, an indie comedy written and directed by Christopher Monger based on his own novel of the same name.

The story is set in the 1970's and follows a young man who discovers his artistic calling after being drafted by the denizens of a sleepy little New England mill town to serve as photographer of their most intimate moments. Monger himself has already seen great praise and success from his script for Temple Grandin, the award-winning HBO film starring Claire Danes. Without a doubt I'm interested in seeing where Radcliffe takes his career after Harry Potter, and knowing his comedic potential from his hilarious appearance on Ricky Gervais' comedy series "Extras," I'm looking forward to this with great interest. How about you?
