Radcliffe Makes Nude Broadway Debut

Harryhot3 The Huffington Post reports that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is now old enough to take off his invisibility cloak and bare his googlie-mooglies when he brings the play Equus to Broadway in September. Dreams do come true! Actually, for my dream to really come true there'd be room for Ron Weasley in that barn as well, and Sirius Black and even poor consumptive sexy Professor Lupin.

Oh, dear. Where was I? I think I was looking at this picture of naked Potter leaning tenderly against a horse and wondering how many American teenagers are trying to figure out how they could do the same thing for their yearbook photo.

Radcliffe_griffiths Peter Schaffer's 1973 play involves a psychiatrist who takes on a young male patient who has a sexual and religious fascination with horses, and who one night, as part of an invented ceremony of worship, blinds six of the animals. (Wikipedia offers a synopsis here.) It's a riveting story. There's also a good film version of it starring Richard Burton as the shrink, who on Broadway will be no doubt wonderfully and somewhat hilariously played by Richard Griffiths, the actor who portrayed Uncle Vernon in the Potter films.

The nudity's not really the focus of the play, and it's not so much sexual as primal. But Radcliffe in nothing but his altogether? I'd go. If someone gave me a ticket.

Speaking of, uh, whatever we're supposed to be talking about, did you ever see that YouTube thing with the Harry Potter puppets? Clever!

Did I miss a joke somewhere? Why did the Dumbledore puppet get nekked?

I have no idea, unless it's some sort of reference to J. K. Rowling "outing" Dumbledore.
