    It’s not a point of view it’s an insult. There are many short actors in hollywood – in fact some of the best are. Yet every time there is a photo of him they want to call him short – because they have shit else to say. He’s gracious to his fans, he’s gorgeous, talented (getting praise), intelligent, richer then most of the people bashing him can ever hope to be, and I know not what else. Great pictures!

  • joss

    daniel! <3 he’s definitely a talented actor with a great sense of humor!

  • LolaSvelt

    Hunter Parrish is hotter and more talented.

  • Francesca

    Dan got excellent reviews for Equus, but there are not enough seats sold. It is selling only about half the seats for every performance. Of course he’s rich enough so he doesn’t need any more big successes financially, but I am sure he is not happy that the play is not more popular. In general he appears very very nice for an actor, most of whom grow very big egos. His seems to have stayed normal size.

  • Kate

    Ahh Spring Awakening is the best musical to have ever existed..I cried when I heard it was closing…

  • MINA

    Hunter is so uglyy..Dan is Hottttttttttttttttttttttt

  • kailey

    Ugh. D-Rad is ugly. He looks like a hobbit.

  • Sarah

    LOL kailey bb you are sound like a member of ONTD:Blind,rude and moron.LOL

  • MElly

    dan looks s hot all sruff up!

  • Francesca

    Since Spring Awakening has been running since 2006 and Dan’s play is not doing very well, he probably wants to find out what the secret is of having a long running show on Broadway. The Harry Potter movies were super successful, but Dan has had his failures, like December Boys and now this run of Equus in New York that has had trouble filling the seats every night.

  • Lor

    Hello Chris!!now you are “Francesca”…you are very bored,get a life and stop with your criticism,please.

  • viv

    love spring awakening! I miss Jonathon Groff and Lea Michele soo much though.

  • LuckyL

    The blond looks so much hotter

  • regina

    are you sure Francesca.december boys independent movie after all its very successfull in box office.for example driving lesson to begin play festivals but december boys then successfull DL.
    and equus.equus is important play.if you say very terrbile play thats mean you are not real theater audience.because equus is very important play.(mexica,china,some europe countries stage this play)
    of course equus had trouble filling the seats every night but only equus? what about all my sons(spite of magazine news) and other plays.we knows a lot of plays taken away for this.dont worry if equus is not successful they taken away it.
    you dont never mind but

  • Francesca

    I have to wonder what the motivation is to act on stage. I mean you have to give eight performances a week, each over two hours long. You have to remember the lines, get your emotions worked up, etc., etc., etc. And the pay can’t be anywhere near what you get for a movie. In a movie you shoot the scene once (you might have to do it over several times, but that’s it) and most of the day you are doing almost nothing. And then you are through with it. Stage actors are gluttons for punishment it seems to me.
    By the way December Boys was such a flop in the US its gross was only a few dollars more than fifty thousand. Terrible. Dan’s big success has been Potter. Once that is gone he’s going to find making lots of money much more difficult. I still can’t decide whether I think he will become a big star or just sort of fade away.

  • Lor

    Chris(or Francesca)don’t waste your time,you are such a troll and your opinion about him and his work is pathetic.Get a life!!

  • kreinz

    wwooww.. dan you are so hot as always!!.. so,, handsome,,, very down to earth guy,, he is not acting in a celebrity way,,,you know what i mean… come on he is the most popular teen actor in theworld, of course bec… of harry potter but he is not arrogant like every teen actors,,, he is not WANNA BE… he always live his life in a simple way…

  • Francesca

    Many authorities on acting think you have to have hangups and be conflicted and somewhat neurotic to be a good actor. Dan would appear to give that idea the lie. As far as we know, he has had a very happy life so far, lives in a family where everyone gets along, and is not neurotic in the least. The only reason I can see for his liking to act is because he isn’t much good at anything else, or so he himself says.

  • Francesca

    Went to You Tube to take a look at his August interview with Conan to see if I wanted to watch it again on TV and it was removed. Other interviews he has done have also been removed. I guess whoever owns them wants to rerun them with ads to make more MONEY. In any case, it is hardly worthwhile to watch him give an interview any more. He says the same things over and over and over again and his vocabulary is still compsed of “awesome” “fantastic” “amazing” “incredible”, etc., etc. and little else. The kid has become a actor-robot who has lost any spontaneity or charm. So sad. Dannyboy=money making machine.

  • http://Q Francesca (genuine)

    Dan recently appeared on Conan. He said a friend of his, Robin, is visiting him from the UK. He also said Robin is staying in a hostel that doesn’t have TV. I found it strange that Dan, worth they say forty million dollars, could not have put his friend up at a modest hotel that does have TV. I mean how stingy can you be?

  • http://Q Hortense

    Dan evidently is having difficult with people in the audience at his play who try to talk to him while he is acting. That must be a real bitch and distraction. But of course they asked for it by putting people right on the stage, although elevated from it, so that they are that close to him. If he finds it annoying (and who wouldn’t) they should remove the seats that are on the stage.
