After six years, Daniel Radcliffe is officially marking his return to the London stage.
The 23-year-old actor, whose name is synonymous with the wildly successful Harry Potter franchise, will be flexing his acting chops off the big screen. After starring in both Broadway and West End productions of Equus in 2007, Radcliffe was recently cast in a The Cripple of Inishmaan, per the Huffington Post.
Written by Martin McDonagh, the funny and equally tragic play follows a young Irish orphan (Radcliffe) as he dreams of a brighter life in Hollywood. While the young actor is no stranger to challenging roles (e.g., having to go full nude in the psychosexual drama Equus), Radcliffe was particularly struck by this forthcoming gig.
