Daniel Radcliffe is Tony Awards Surprised

Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter films, is in pure shock as he walks the red carpet at the 2008 Tony Awards held at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday in New York City.

Radcliffe, 18, is planning his Broadway debut later this year in Equus. He will be reprising the role he first performed in London’s West End. He appears naked on stage!

DO YOU THINK you’ll buy tickets to see Daniel Radcliffe perform on Broadway?

he looks scary!

# 2

I don’t think I’ll be a fan of his movies aside from the Harry Potter movies.

# 3

THE LAKER JUST WON!!!
HELL YEA

# 4

this boy needs a tan!!

# 5

He was kinda cute when he was that little boy at Harry Potter but getting uglier as he grow. with his look and height, I’m afraid he couldn’t possible have other’s role aside from HP.

He was very good in My Boy Jack. I wouldn’t see Equus. Too wierd.
Saw the movie with Richard Burton years ago. Not my cup of tea.

# 7

He needs someone to wax his eyebrows.

# 8

Looks like he had a few drugs

# 9

:) What an exceptional actor. He is so talented and amezing :)

Oh how I wish I could afford it. ^_^

he does look a lil scary =S

and why did he pose that way anyway?

He drank too many butter beers or smoked some magical stuff before hitting the carpet.

People, you really have problems! “Tan”, “Waxing”, what else? Can you not accept somebody the way they are?

Daniel is still young. He will grow, and hopefully his acting-skill too. I never see him out side than HP. But if he tried stage, that’s good for training.

I saw Equus long time ago. This film is burnt on my mind, I am not sure if I can accept other actor playing Alan Strang. Peter Firth was simply too brilliant!

daniel drank smoke in equus.he doesnt smoke.he is amazing actor.you’ll see

i definitely want to see Equus!

He’s so cute. I love you Daniel Radcliffe

Yes #3. Lakers WON! Win or lose the rest of the way, it’s good to see the home fans get a win in the last game of the season/year.

WTF??Jared you are cruel!!i see photos of him in the awards a lot better and he looks gorgeous but no,yo post ONLY the bad photos with poses….CRUEL.Ah!!here the people is so jealous of Dan…hahaha Dan is the best!!

Right,ONLY the photos with bad poses…go to other pages and see that he looks gorgeous in the NORMAL photos.people is so jealous of Dan hahahaha “drugs”"he is uglier”"smoke”hahahaha.DAN ROCKS.

i think nudity live on stage would creap me out. i don’t think i could watch. i am by no means a prude but it is just kind of gross. i also think for some reasons women’s bodies look better naked than men’s. i think that is why you see so many more women in such scenes in movies. i just don’t get how you could play that role as teenage boy. i do think he is a good actor & seems like a really nice kid theres just something odd about him willing to strip down for the role at this point in his life.

DO YOU THINK you’ll buy tickets to see Daniel Radcliffe perform on Broadway?

Already have them, sweetie!

Jared'sanasshole @ 06/16/2008 at 3:52 am

Daniel is only 18 and will grow into his looks hopefully by the time that he hits 20. A great thing about him is that he doesn’t doll himself up for red carpet events like the American elebrities tend to do in order get praise from people like you that are obviously image conscious and can’t look past the ‘he looks drunk’ or ‘he nedds to wax his eyebrows’ ect, and that’s really pathetic. It is horrible that Jared decided to use the pictures that are not so attractive and obviously he did it for a reason and if one were to see Dan’s video on the red carpet, it’ll paint a completely different picture as he looks mature and handsome. Follow the link below.

??????????????????? @ 06/16/2008 at 3:54 am

he’s a very ugly boy

Winsome Audrey @ 06/16/2008 at 3:56 am

I believe he’s going to end up just like Macaulay Culkin, cute as a child but not leading man material as an adult.

I’d totally buy tickets, too bad they cost the Earth. He looks either drunk or high. I wonder what’s wrong…?

In these he looks wasted but in the movies he’s smexy as hell. And he’s a GREAT actor, you guys are obviously jealous.

#25

You are right. Daniel was very focused and mature for his age (in the interview). How old is he, now? 19 years old?
I wish him good luck! Equus is indeed such a challenge!
Unfortunately, Equus will not be played in my town, that’s why I can not see it. If I could, yes I would.

And 23 (NO), I suggest you to watch the film first, so you know what you are talking about. And what is wrong with male nudity? They are as beautiful as women, you only have to see it with different eyes..

Areuserious @ 06/16/2008 at 5:38 am

27# Have you even watched Dan in ‘My Boy Jack’ and read the reviews that he recieved for his performance as well as for Equus? Becuase if you did you wouldn’t be saying that about him as he is coming out of his shell and has shown that he is capable for much more than just playing Harry Potter. Dan’s been brought up by great parents and is very grounded so I don’t see how you can even compare him to the likes of Macaulay Culkin, who’s parents were your typical American money hungry parents of a celebrity.

He looks sick. Poor guy, i hope he feels better then he looks.

why does everyone NEED a tan?
he’s pale skinned and the sun doesn’t usually hang around in britain. get over it.
i’m actually paler than him, but i’m not going to go out and burn my skin or smother myself in orangey gunk. and that’s okay with me. :)

Un momento en mi languido gemido
otro gemido respondio lejano

He seems to be a great kid, growing into a nice young man and his acting skills, according to reviews seem to growing as well.

Those are some pretty horrible photos though. (And folks wonder why Celebs don’t like paps. *lol* ;P )

I saw Equus in London and it was brilliant! Dan did an incredible job with the part of Alan Strang and I am certain he will be amazing in the Broadway run as well. I already have tickets to see it again. And I’ll be shocked if he’s not at the Tony’s next year accepting an award of his own.

I watched the Tonys on tv yestarday, Daniel Radcliffe looked great! He recived very good reviews for his acting on Equus last year in London, so of couse I’ll go to see it on Broadway, it’s a brilliant play.

Whoa he looks different

I sat through the Tony’s last night just to see Dan…And I already have tickets for Equus…Can’t Wait!!!

jobrolover @ 06/16/2008 at 11:12 am

i’ve already purchased three tickets for the third rowww!!!!!!! I’M SOO EXCITED!!! I LOVE DANIEL RADCLIFFEEEEEEE!!!

I just watched all 5 Harry Potters movies, which I never saw before.

Okay, I know i’m going to get flammed, but Daniel is not that good an actor. I’m sorry. The other actors, especially the boy who plays Longbottom and the pretty girl who plays Luna, are much better actors. I even like the red-head twin boys, Ron’s brothers. I found his over-acting a bit much. The supporting cast keeps him going.

I hope they are filming the rest of the Potter movies because no way will he pass for a 16 year old now. He’s not growing up handsome, that’s for sure.

And no, I’m in NYC and I won’t be seeing “Equis”. He’s not that good an actor to really pull it off on the Broadway stage.

Hahahaha stefanie,”Equis”??hahaha cleary you aren’t a fan of HP.Girl,read the reviews of EQUUS and My boy Jack,he is an amazing actor.You don’t know the name of the actors of HP,you say wrong Equus…hahaha other non-HP fan jealous of Dan hahahaha.

his eyes look very watery its scary =O but hes still awesome =D

tess malloy @ 06/16/2008 at 12:30 pm

He isn’t the traditional leading man, that’s for sure, but james mcavoy seems to pull it off(though he is hotter than Dan). He is waaaaay pale. i love harry potter, and he does great in that, but he’s kind of short and unmasculine. i hope he grows into his looks.

Looks like he’s been snorting cocaine all night long… not saying he HAS, just looks about the same… sweaty, pale, eyes shot out, etc.. etc..

just my opinion , but equus is a little strange, and i have to wonder about the folks obsessed with it.

HE IS THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!
an excellent actor. i’m a huge hp fan
he doesn’t need to change
i so want to see equus, but i’m far away :S
kisses from argentina

To Sarah, post #44:
Yeah, I’m not a fan of HP since it’s taken me over 5 years to watch the movies. And I did compliment the actors of Harry Potter- the supporting actors, especially the young people, are better actors.

Radcliffe will never worry about money his whole life. But all that doesn’t make him a good actor. He is adequate. That’s about it. If others think he’s all that, then that’s okay too. Just hate to see mediocrity in acting promoted as “great acting”.

Nysro,cocaine??LOL i love it!!more and more jealous of Dan LOL.tess malfoy,he is perfect,doesn’t need grow into his looks.Stefanie,again,read the reviews of Equus and My boy Jack.

Did you guys purposely pick the most unflattering pictures you could find? I’ve seen other photos from this event and Daniel looks lovely.

Leave the poor kid alone. He’s a nice looking pale English kid with big eyebrows. Deal with it.

i’ve already bought mine.

equus is one of my favorite plays, so i would probably have done it regardless of wee little harry here.

Another example that being cute as a kid does not automatically translate into being a handsome adult. What happened to him? His eyes, eyebrows, it all looks really strange, like he hasn’t slept in 10 days and has splashed some hair restorer on the wrong places, and he definitely needs to spend a day outdoors once in a while and get some tan.

Oh, and by the way, if you have a second to spare, please visit my new blog http://sunnykidstyle.wordpress.com/ about stylish design for kids and feel free to give me some feedback. I’d really appreciate it :):)

Sunnykidstyle….other jealous.What’s happen with “big eyebrows”??he is a man,not a girl!!and i agree with Emma,he looks wonderful in the NORMAL photos or you can see the video of his interview and see how handsome looked last nigth.

i suppose all the critics have only brilliant photos of themselves! Chill out, we all have a few photos taken of us when we didn’t expect it. After all isn’t that the only point of having a camera attached to your mobile phone!!!

also, just watching the award show again. By the negative coments of how Dan looks, holding back his future career…mmmmmm all i can say is Richard Griffith! One of GBs greatest actors, not a piece of bland hollywood ‘plastic’

Before you go around complaining, no offense but that’s what your comment sounds like, about hating to see mediocrity in acting promoted as “great acting”, where you were quite obviously referring to Dan in particular. I suggest that you go and watch Dan’s performance in ‘My Boy Jack’ as well as ‘Equus’, and then come back and say the same thing. Many critics have praised Dan’s performance in both and have dubbed him to be a young actor evolving, and unless your at that level of analysing one’s performance, then your opinion isn’t reality.

Dan did these two projects after HP and the Ootp, in which his performance to be very honest wasn’t great but it was as you said ‘adequate’, so I suggest that you don’t go around watching the wrong movies to base your opinion on Dan’s acting. He’s not the best as he’s only 18, one cannot expect a performance similar to the likes of Johnny Depp, but hopefully by that age Dan will be just as good.

IDon’tThinkSo #59

I don’t really take critics opinions that serious because the reviews of the Harry Potter movies have always been amazing and I found the movies fine movie going, but not classics.

I live in NYC, go to theatre all the time and read reviews before and after seeing performances. Sometimes, I feel the critics boost a performance more than it should have been. Since Mr. Radcliffe has not been in NY theatre, we will see how well he fares here.

Plus, there was a revival of Equus a few years back. Most critics felt the play “showed its age”, but it will be well received, I know. And all the Daniel/Harry fans will be waiting to see his “talent”.

Oh, yeah, and hopeful watch the play too.

Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabyyyy Love! S2

JJ posted the worst pictures of him. :(

Your comment really says it all, what with the “And all the Daniel/Harry fans will be waiting to see his “talent”’ was quite immature, something that one doesn’t really expect from someone who claims to be an avid fan of theatre, you should have been able to give a better comment on your dislike of Dan’s acting than that. You obviously have already made up your mind on Dan and his acting skills, which really doesn’t put you in a good position to judge him.

According to you, “Sometimes, I feel the critics boost a performance more than it should have been” and seriously is that what you think critics that have praised Dan’s performance have done? They’ve boosted his perfomence as being more than it really was? All I suggest now is that before you start making assumptions and immature comments on Dan’s in Equus, watch him first and then say something.

i love this idea, HASIOHAIOSHAO (y’

I already have tickets!

Saw him in Equus in London. He’s a talented actor.

i find him cute :]
psh i am so on buying tickets for Equus asap!

I think Dan knows he’s not a good actor. I think that’s why he chose a role that shows his balls. How else would he get lots of attention? Also, there are brilliant actors in the play and the play itself is phenomenal so quite a good decision by him to get attention but not get vilified for his bad acting since the cast will carry him and showing himself naked will impress the critics since they appear to think that doing that somehow means you can act.

Also, these may be ugly photos of him (I’ve seen better) but they’re still basically how he looks. He was sooo much cuter in POA. They are going to have to do a lot of photoshopping and airbrushing in the upcoming Potter films. Not much they can do about the fact that he’s a hobbit though. :(

What silly comments. He did Equus because he wanted to escape the “boy wizard” image before he got trapped in it. Quite sensible. This picture was obviously taken when he was not “posing” for the camera. He is small (short), but clearly very good looking all the same. His eyebrows are just fine as they are. He is not the charming innocent kid he was in David Copperfield, but he seems to have grown up wihout going off the rails (so far). I would bet he turns out to be a kid star who continues to become a first rate adult actor. Compared to many kid actors I think he has his feet on the ground, has a great set of parents, is very very rich, and probably an all round happy young man. He is 18 years old (birthday July 23).

he wears too much make up!!!

he wears too much make up!!!

Most critics, and that includes other professional actors, said that he was very good, better than good, in Equus. Close to sensational. I am sure there are “fans” who are envious of him and would like to diss him, but the critics and the public at large adore him. He sure doesn’t need Casey’s approval. Casey who??? LOL

He isn’t wearing ANY makeup, silly. Areuserious has it right. The rest are way off base.

These are the worst photos!
Try putting up some of his best and then ask the question!
He was so good in Equus in London that they have invited him to come to Broadway. How many 17 year old actors have that chance?
(He’ll of course be 19 when he performs here in Sept.)
Harry is one character – Dan is capable of so much more and we are going to see that in the years ahead.
Not leading man material? Think again! You’ll be eating your words!

frootie tootie @ 06/17/2008 at 6:42 am

ugh! what an ugly pasty piece of poo. He looks like some kind of garbage cleaner or HoBo that i saw yesterday. and his face looks so serial killerish, with ugly red marks around his eyes, and gaunt face. EW. he freaks me out, like EEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Tootie frootie you are in one word: PATHETIC,eat your envy,stupid.

Do you think we’ll buy tickets to see Dan perform? I already bought my tickets the DAY that they came out! I saw him in London in Equus, he was absolutely amazing and incredibly naked, and I’m seeing him again on February 4th!

Playing Alan Strang in Equus is a challenging role for a young actor, indeed. It’s such an emotional part and an emotional play, and Dan did amazing. I think he really showed the world that he can act by doing that play.

Harry i think u were great! No matter wat people may say about u u r great and better than them, they r just jelous.I really truely think u r the perfect Role model for thousands of people all around the world, including me. I love the J.K Rowling Harry Potter books infact I read all the Harry Potter Books Series and i also saw all the 5 movies of Harry Potter and I think U,Emma watson, and Rupert Grint Rocked all the movies. Y’all r the best actors on the movie including some of the others.I hope the sixth movie of Harry Potter would come out really soon i cant wait to watch it.And congratulations on the 2008 Tony Awardsu r awsome!

HE LOOKs Horrible. (sorry) but he looks wayyyy better in the films.

veldrimor @ 10/30/2008 at 6:52 am

I agree, he will just end up like Jonathan Lipnicki and the guy in sixth sense..oh and yea the little guy in Home Alone. They were ALL cute when they were kids but just look at them now ekk!

veldrimor @ 10/30/2008 at 7:00 am

not sure if anyone know the boy group “dream street” but all five of the boys there grew up to be pretty handsome looking..Also that boy called Corey Sevier who played lassie show about a dog. Some people are fortunate and some are not apparently :’(. Luckily I was fortunate enough to be born cute and growing up looking pretty. Too bad i’m short or I would soooo enter pageant or model but there are still other things I could get into without much worries ^_^
