Entertainer of the Year- Our Man Dan!
This year’s cover boy, who will next star in the 2012 thriller “The Woman in Black,” wrapped up the beloved and successful “Harry Potter” franchise before becoming the toast of Broadway in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” Proving himself a worthy candidate for the prize, Radcliffe just made Forbes‘ list of bankable box-office stars.
Radcliffe is joined by Adele, the cast of “Bridesmaids,” Hugh Jackman, “South Park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, Viola Davis and “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin in EW‘s annual issue, which hits newsstands December 9.
Radcliffe — who was also chosen as the actor MTV News was most thankful for in 2011 — opened up to us earlier this fall about his ever-evolving career.
“It’s been a great first year away from ‘Potter,’ ” he said. “It’s been very successful. I’ve done some work I’m really proud of in that time, particularly onstage in ‘How to Succeed.’ Just the process of doing it and doing it and doing it, I’ve got so much better, I think, during the run, as is the way it should be. It’s been a great year, but I think next year is the big one for me. ‘The Woman in Black’ is coming out, and I’ve also got a couple other things I’ll be doing. The next two or three years are going to be pretty important, I think, and if  is not a breakout year, it’s a breakaway year.”
He will be featured on Entertainment Weekly’s cover this Friday! December 9th.
