The glasses aren't new, but the curly hair sure is.
In a bit of casting against type, Daniel Radcliffe is playing Beat Generation poet Allen Ginsberg in a movie now shooting in Brooklyn Kill Your Darlings – and this is among the very first looks of the Harry Potter star in character.
The independent film tells the real-life story of the young Ginsberg's meeting fellow Beat legends Jack Kerouac (On the Road) and Lucien Carr in 1944 and of the murder of Carr's former English teacher, David Kammerer, which resulted in a sensational trial and Carr's imprisonment.

We'd like to buy a trend.
Less than a week after Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak admitted to being drunk at work, news of another celebrity who has revealed that he, too, was under the influence in front of the camera, is making the rounds.
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe tells the British celebrity magazine Heat that he went to work on the set while drunk.
But unlike Sajak's lighthearted account of margaritas with Vanna White on filming breaks, Radcliffe, 22, shares a darker experience.

There's no bad blood between Harry Potter costars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.
Despite an interview that Radcliffe recently did that "was blown out of proportion," the Woman in Black star says he and Grint, 23, are "very, very good friends."
"It's just ridiculous," Radcliffe, 22, told On Air with Ryan Seacrest. "Someone said, 'Are you in contact with Rupert and Emma [Watson] at the moment?' And I said, 'Emma and I have been texting recently, but Rupert and I never text.' "

Daniel Radcliffe may be the star of one of the most popular movie franchises of all time, but he still has a thing or two to learn about dating.
Luckily the actor has found love with girlfriend Rosie Coker, a production assistant he met on the set of the last Harry Potter film.
"I hated dating, because I'm crap at it! With Rosie, I didn't know what was appropriate, like on which date you're supposed to try and kiss her," Radcliffe tells Sunday's Parade magazine.

He may make the young women in the audience of his Broadway show How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying shriek when he shakes his compact little body during his dance numbers, but there's really only one person Daniel Radcliffe cares to succeed with: Rosanne Coker.
She's the one the Harry Potter star described as his "girlfriend at the moment, who I am very much in love with."
Only as late as Thursday, just as photos of her and Radcliffe strolling hand-in-hand together in New York surfaced, the young woman's identity remained a mystery.

The Harry Potter series may be history, but Daniel Radcliffe is starring in a new love story of his own.
The actor, 22, was spotted walking hand-in-hand with a girlfriend in New York City Tuesday. He recently told Larry King that he's in a serious relationship, though he didn't name his leading lady.
"I've got a girlfriend at the moment, who I am very much in love with," Radcliffe told the talk show host in July. "So you know, we'll see where that goes."

Saying goodbye is never easy – especially for Muggles.
As hundreds of fans cheered them on, the Harry Potter trio of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint walked the red carpet together for what may be the last time ever at the U.S. premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2 Monday night in New York City.
"It's been the most amazing roller coaster ride," Watson, 21, donning a curve-hugging Bottega Veneta gown, told reporters. Admitting she was feeling "emotional," Watson wore some precautionary waterproof mascara. (At last week's London world premiere, she cried. Her eyes stayed dry on Monday.)
For Radcliffe, also 21, growing up on the Potter movie set "was the most fantastic thing. There are no places more fun for a 12-year-old kid to be than a film set. It's like the ultimate playground. … It's been an exciting, bizarre, wonderful 10 years."

Daniel Radcliffe tried to conjure his own magical powers with whiskey, the Harry Potter star admits – but the 21-year-old has been dry since last August.
"I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff," Radcliffe, now starring in Broadway's How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, tells the new issue of GQ magazine.
In particular, Radcliffe reveals to GQ (and widely quoted in U.K. newspapers), his drinking became an issue on the set of 2009's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – though, luckily for him, photographers weren't around.
"I really got away with that because there were many instances when a paparazzi shot like that could have been taken," he says.
