Daniel Radcliffe Does a Lot of Nude Scenes, but Says He Doesn't Request Them

Originally posted 10/05/2013 08:10AM

Daniel Radcliffe is best known for playing boy wizard Harry Potter, but there's something else he's getting a reputation for – taking off his clothes.

The actor, who shocked fans when he appeared naked on Broadway in Equus in 2008, has stripped down in three movies this year – and shared a bathtub with Jon Hamm on TV – but he told Ellen DeGeneres on Friday that his nude streak was "not intentional."

"I'm comfortable with it, but I do like to point out, I don't request it," he jokes.

Jon Hamm better tell his alter ego to lay off the smokes.

The Mad Men star, 42, who plays tormented ad executive Don Draper on the acclaimed AMC series, is preparing to undergo throat surgery next week to remove a large polyp that has affected his voice.

Confirming the actor's condition, his rep, who called the surgery a "routine outpatient procedure," told PEOPLE, "He's having a single polyp removed from his throat."

PEOPLE's TV Critic: What the Emmys Got Right and Wrong

Originally posted 09/23/2013 03:00PM

Late into the 65th annual Emmys ceremony Sunday on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris announced: "No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool."

If you did happen to win, you should consider a career in statistical forecasting. The awards were all over the place.

Of the night's many surprises, the biggest was in the category of best actor. Academy voters for once decided not to give the prize to Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston – but instead of rewarding Mad Men's Jon Hamm, the perennial also-ran, they chose Jeff Daniels of HBO's The Newsroom. Perhaps they concluded that Hamm is already lousy with nominations, and handsome as the devil, and that should hold him. Daniels is a fine actor, as you'll discover if you catch just about any of his many performances of the past three decades, but The Newsroom's first season was a pounding surf of angry, righteous yammering. Oh well.

Here's what else the Emmys got right and wrong:

At the end of the Harry Potter films, we got to see Daniel Radcliffe happily grown up with a family of his own. In the new mini-series, A Young Doctor's Notebook, Radcliffe faces his less congenial grown-up self head on in the form of Jon Hamm.

"I am the envy of every woman ever," Radcliffe, 23, told the Sun of playing a med school grad who's sent to run a hospital in an isolated Russian village in 1917 opposite the 42-year-old Mad Men star.

Only the relationship between the younger and older doctor isn't exactly friendly, and at one point the pair stare angrily at each other from opposite ends of a metal bath tub.

PEOPLE's TV Critic: James Gandolfini Was a True Television Giant | James Gandolfini

James Gandolfini Was True Television Giant: PEOPLE's TV Critic

Originally posted 06/20/2013 09:40AM

In a nutshell: James Gandolfini gave one of the greatest performances in one of the greatest roles in one of the greatest series at the dawn of what is now regarded as television's new golden age.

In fact, you could probably remove those qualifying “one of"s and still find heads nodding in agreement among critics, viewers and whatever poor thugs are left hanging around the Bada Bing club, nursing their beers and watching the dancers.

Gandolfini, who died at age 51 in Rome on Wednesday, was known throughout the world for his six seasons on The Sopranos (1999-2007), the classic HBO drama about a mob boss living in suburban New Jersey with his wife, two kids and some occasional, possibly symbolic ducks in the backyard.

Mobster and "waste management" executive Tony Soprano, as brilliantly conceived by series creator David Chase, was perhaps meant to put the kibosh on the romanticized Corleones of The Godfather, ruthless killers who nonetheless had the smooth beauty of movie stars, eyes full of regret and an air of tragic inevitability.
