Daniel Radcliffe has recently completed filming his role for The F Word and is now in Vancouver, Canada to film his next motion picture, Horns. In the film, Dan will be portraying the role of Ignatius “Ig” Perrish who wakes up one day to find devilish appendages growing from his forehead.
Entertainment Weekly had this to say about Radcliffe:
Radcliffe describes his new role as “deeply emotional and also incredibly outrageous in some ways.” How outrageous? Well, let’s just say the 11-year-old Daniel Radcliffe we met in Harry Potter is nowhere to be found. In his place, we have Ig, who is accused of the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend before waking up and to find horns that come with a wildly tempting power trip – he can induce people to tell the truth or compel them to give into their ugliest inner urges.
Says Radcliffe, “To play somebody who, in the midst of a time in his life of great turmoil anyway, undergoes this horrific transformation into a devil character – it was very, very exciting.”
