EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

Call it Black Swan-lite: Daniel Radcliffe spent the last year taking 17 hours of voice and dance lessons a week in order to shake his moneymaker as corporate ladder-climber J. Pierrepont Finch in the upcoming musical comedy revival How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, which opens on Broadway March 27. But though his character may be as ambitious as Natalie Portman’s — in a matter of weeks, he goes from window washer to ad exec — his tale is much more fun and games, or, should we say, song and dance: “Finch is a symbol of drive without any kind of maliciousness,” says Radcliffe. “There’s an innocence to him, which is quite endearing. You forgive a lot of his actions that would otherwise be considered quite manipulative and unpleasant.”

Now Just a Muggle, With Song and Dance

THE most famous 21-year-old on the planet came barreling into a West Village diner one wintry February morning, desperately craving Belgian waffles. He was bleary eyed, scruffy and stubbly but energetic despite the early hour, and slightly winded after rushing from the previous restaurant chosen for him, which was closed because of a gas leak.

Slipping unnoticed into a backup location that presented no imminent threat of explosion, he winkingly acknowledged his morning’s travails — “You were trying to kill me, weren’t you?” he said through a smile — and before tearing into the breakfast that would power him through that day’s rehearsals for his new Broadway musical, offered the following warning:

“You will see me probably drink an obscene amount of maple syrup. I’ve never had maple syrup before about three weeks ago, and now I could freebase it. Pints of it.”

Movie Bosses Pay Fortune To Free Daniel Radcliffe For Harry Potter Promos

Bosses at Warner Bros. have reportedly paid out half a million dollars to ensure Daniel Radcliffe is free to promote the final Harry Potter movie later this year (11).

The second installment of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is due to open in London in July (11), but the film’s star Radcliffe is signed up to appear in this year’s revival of Broadway play How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

It means the actor might not have been available to fulfil promotion duties for the closing chapter in the wizard franchise – so Warners chiefs have reportedly stitched up a deal to “buy” the Hirschfeld Theatre, where the play is staged, for up to five nights to keep Radcliffe free.

A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, “This is the final film, so it’s a big deal. A grand world premiere is being planned as well as a U.S. premiere and a press tour. They absolutely couldn’t do it without their big star. But the theatre producers dug their heels in and said they wouldn’t release Radcliffe unless Warner bought out the entire theater for the nights they need him.

“Studio bosses are furious, but they have no choice but to pay up for five nights costing over $500,000.”

A spokesman for Radcliffe tells the publication, “Everything is fine, Dan is promoting the film and is happy to do so. With all productions there are scheduling issues but everything has all been worked out. Warner Bros. is very supportive of Dan, and there is no issue.”

Daniel Radcliffe and Rob Ashford Debut Director’s Cut Series

As director-choreographer Rob Ashford readies the 50th Anniversary revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying for Broadway’s Al Hirschfeld Theatre, he sits down with the show’s leading man Daniel Radcliffe for an in-depth conversation about theatre, film and all points in between. Part One in a three-part series.

Daniel Radcliffe Sings & Dances on Broadway!

Jon Hamm, move over. The latest looker to leap back into the 1960s: Daniel Radcliffe, who is assuming the musical role of quintessential company man J. Pierrepont Finch in the new Broadway revival of the 1961 classic How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

As shown in these exclusive-to-PEOPLE rehearsal shots, Radcliffe is already off and running ahead of the chorus. As Finch, he starts in the mailroom of Manhattan’s World Wide Wicket and works his way up the corporate ladder.

En route, he meets the adoring secretary Rosemary Pilkington – played by Philadelphia-born Rose Hemingway, in her Broadway debut after touring nationally in Mamma Mia. She’s also appeared in Donmar Warehouse’s U.S. production of Parade at Los Angeles’s Mark Taper Forum.

In the production, which marks Radcliffe’s return to the Great White Way for the first time since starring in a 2008 revival of Equus – Anderson Cooper narrates Finch’s meteoric rise … and fall.

“Anderson Cooper just always stood out for me,” the Harry Potter star, 21, says on the How to Succeed Web site about the CNN anchor. “He always had this kind of really cool … playful glint behind his eye, I think, which I always found quite funny.”

Also in the cast: John Larroquette, as J.B. Biggley, the boss of the World Wide Wicket Company, who admires Finch’s fortitude. Previews begin Feb. 26 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, with the opening night set for March 27.

Coincidentally, Radcliffe’s role made a star of Robert Morse when he originated J. Pierrepont Finch in the original How to … 50 years ago (and in the 1967 movie) – and, today, Morse, 79, memorably stars on Mad Men, as the advertising company’s founder, Bertram Cooper.

First Glimpse of Post-Potter Daniel Radcliffe

Now that he’s finished up his Harry Potter days, Daniel Radcliffe is moving on to other roles. I’m sad too, but we all knew this day would come. Now we’ve got our first glimpse of his first post-Potter flick, The Woman in Black. No more boyish, lightly tousled locks and impossibly round glasses for Radcliffe; no sirree. He’s onto harder stuff now; just look at the furrowed brow, that tightly fastened collar, that stubble, that…is he holding a PICK AXE? This new Radcliffe means business.

We know little else about what’s going on in this photo, but doesn’t he look dashing? I think he looks dashing. Enjoy.

Daniel Radcliffe Succeeds in Vogue Without Really Trying

Daniel Radcliffe will probably be 40 years old before he grows out of the “Harry Potter all grown up” cliches. So while we still can let’s indulge in this Vogue photo shoot with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz of Radcliffe starring in the upcoming Broadway production of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”

“Dan has always had a musical performer inside him waiting for a chance to come out,” his director, Rob Ashford tells the magazine.

In his behind the scenes video Radcliffe chats about life post Harry Potter (very busy), dancing in public (frightening) and why he loves the character he is playing on Broadway.

“I love Finch because nearly everything he does is morally reprehensible, but you still root for him. The part is perfect for where I am right now — I’m a little guy, I’m 21, and people are used to seeing me play a kid who always tries to do the right thing,” Radcliffe says.

“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” opens on Broadway March 27th.

Will the Harry Potter Kids Still Be Famous After 2011?

This is the last year for Harry Potter movies. Will the three main actors ever be this famous again? —ConV, via the inbox

Saying goodbye to Harry and Hermione and Ron—oh, the mere idea probably has you weeping and reaching for your Pensieve to relive the old days, before Hermione got her Brazilian blowout, and Dumbledore floated up to his glowing wizard bench in the sky.

Weep not, muggle, for I have good news:

Let’s start with the boy who lived himself, Daniel Radcliffe.

He just announced a role in an indie comedy called The Amateur Photographer. Per Variety, Radcliffe plays a resident of a mill town in the 1970s. The character starts photographing the “most intimate moments” of the townspeople’s lives, before rousting the “local authorities while bringing a bit of a velvet revolution to the community.”

Not exactly mainstream fare.

But then again, Radcliffe is still attached to a new version of the war classic All Quiet on the Western Front. And if that isn’t Oscar bait, I don’t know what is. (Oscar bait, of course, means Oscar campaigning, and red carpets, and all the renewed fame therein.)

Daniel Radcliffe Joins The Amateur Photographer

Christopher Monger (The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill And Came Down A Mountain, “Temple Grandin”) will direct the film from his own script, telling the story of a young man (Radcliffe) who is asked to photograph the private lives of a small town in 1970’s New England.

Radcliffe will next appear in the final entry in the filmic Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 and then in the horror thriller The Woman in Black.
