On January 27, 2020 Dan will join Alan Cumming for Samuel Beckett’s Endgame and Rough for Theatre II. Endgame was originally played by Michael Gambon and David Thewlis . This was announced via the Old Vic’s Facebook page for Season 5.

Dan will play ClovHamm’s servant; unable to sit. Taken in by Hamm as a child. Hamm will be played by Alan Cumming who is unable to stand and blind.

Nothing stirs outside. In a bare room, Hamm, an old, blind tyrant, is locked in a stalemate with his servant Clov. Interrupted only by the nostalgic musings of Hamm’s ancient, dustbin-dwelling parents, this bleakly funny double act cling stubbornly to their routine of casual savagery and mutual dependence.

Playmobil is the latest children’s toy to be given the cinematic treatment. The animated children’s feature is a comedy adventure featuring the beloved role-play figures in a brand new and imaginative universe. Daniel Radcliffe has lent his voice to Playmobil: The Movie along with singer Meghan Trainor and Split star Anya Taylor Joy. Comedian Jim Gaffigan also has a role in the film as does Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson and singer Adam Lambert.

Here’s the official synopsis:

When her younger brother Charlie (Bateman) unexpectedly disappears into the magical, animated universe of PLAYMOBIL®, unprepared Marla (Taylor Joy) must go on a quest of a lifetime to bring him home.

As she sets off on a fantastic journey across stunning new worlds, Marla teams up with some unlikely and heroic new friends – the smooth-talking food truck driver Del (Jim Gaffigan), the dashing and charismatic secret agent Rex Dasher (Radcliffe), a wholehearted misfit robot, an extravagant fairy-godmother (Trainor) and many more.

Through their vibrant adventure, Marla and Charlie realize that no matter how life plays out, you can achieve anything when you believe in yourself.

The film is directed by Lino DiSalvo and produced by On Animation Studios.

Dan returns to Broadway this coming September in The Lifespan of a Fact written by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell, the play will be directed by Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman.

Based on the book written by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal, THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT will begin performances on Thursday, September 20, 2018. Opening night is Thursday, October 18, 2018. The production will play a limited 16-week engagement at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street).

Jim Fingal (Daniel Radcliffe) has a small job: to fact check articles for one of the best magazines in the country. Jim Fingal’s boss (Cherry Jones) has given him a big assignment: apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by legendary author John D’Agata (Bobby Cannavale). And now, Jim Fingal has a huge problem: John made up some of his article. Well, a lot of his article. OK, actually, maybe the majority of it? What starts professional quickly becomes profane as one question rises to the surface: Can Jim Fingal ever just shut the fact up?

THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT is based on the stirring true story of John D’Agata’s essay, “What Happens There,” about the Las Vegas suicide of teenager Levi Presley. Jim Fingal, assigned to fact check the piece, ignited a seven-year debate on the blurred lines of what passes for truth in literary nonfiction.

THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT is produced on Broadway by Jeffrey Richards, Norman and Deanna Twain, Will Trice, Barbara Freitag, Eric Falkenstein, Carl Moellenberg/Wendy Federman, Ken Greiner, Van Kaplan, and Caiola Productions.

Though it is being performed at Studio 54, this production of THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT is not a Roundabout Theatre Company production.

News has spread for Dan’s two upcoming projects: Guns Akimbo and Miracle Workers. Down below is info on each.

Guns Akimbo

Currently in pre-production, Gun Akimbo is being billed as an “adrenaline fueled balls-to-the-wall original action comedy reminiscent in tone to films such as Kick-Ass or Deadpool.”

The story follows a man whose mundane existence is turned upside-down when he finds himself enrolled on a dark net website that forces complete strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death, so that their gladiatorial battles can be live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical audience. After being pitted against a seemingly unstoppable killing machine, he at first manages to avoid conflict, but when his ex-girlfriend is kidnapped, he must overcome his fears and stop running.

More info can be found in our career section.

Miracle Workers

Scheduled to launch in 2018 with seven episodes, the first season of Miracle Workers will be a heaven-set workplace comedy based on Rich’s book What in God’s Name. Radcliffe will play Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers, and Wilson will play Craig’s boss, God, who has pretty much checked out to focus on his favorite hobbies. To prevent Earth’s destruction, Craig must achieve his most impossible miracle to date.

“Having Daniel Radcliffe and Owen Wilson join the TBS family is proof of the continued evolution of this comedy brand as the home of the most creative minds in the business,” said Brett Weitz, EVP Original Programming at TBS. “Owen Wilson has long been a comic genius, and Daniel’s performance in last year’s Swiss Army Man really proved that there’s a sophisticated comedian under the surface of those brilliant dramatic chops. Simon and Lorne are total pros in walking the tightrope between reality and ridiculousness, and they do it with a lot of heart and wit.”
