It has just been announced that Daniel Radcliffe, the young wizard himself, will be starring in the West End revival of Peter Shaffer's Tony Award-winning play, Equus. The script calls for a simulated sex scene and sweet nudity, and the theater is making no bones about pumping the 17-year-old's penis to the press by releasing a handful of near-pornographic promotional pictures from a photo shoot that has the actor in various states of undress and rubbing up against a woman and a horse. (Yes, I said "horse.") Radcliffe's jaw-dropping physique is sure to keep 13-year-old girls duly occupied through puberty.
This blog entry is not a slight at the show's producers and PR department. It is actually a rallying cry of encouragement and the number one reason I will be locked inside my bedroom for long periods of time for the next three weeks.
