Daniel’s got the Beat as Allen Ginsberg
Sorry, James Franco. Your brother Dave kicked box office butt this week in 21 Jump Street, and now Daniel Radcliffe is on track to erase the memory of you as Allen Ginsberg. Per People, set photos surfaced today of the former Boy Who Lived taking on a new mantle: The Boy Who “Howl”-ed.
In Kill Your Darlings, Radcliffe plays a collegiate-age Ginsberg just as he’s meeting influential fellow Beat Generation founders Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan). From the looks of it, Radcliffe is pitch-perfect as the tweedy Ginsberg… well, maybe slightly more adorable. It’s still DanRad we’re talking about.
