Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe is to appear on the London stage next year, playing a stable boy who has an erotic relationship with his horses.

Richard Griffiths will co-star in the revival of Peter Shaffer's 1973 play Equus, to open in the capital in March.

The role will require Radcliffe, 17, to appear naked and symbolically blind six horses. Richard Burton and Peter Firth starred in the 1977 film version.

'symbolically blind' = zombie cumshot?

Terrible idea. "Equus" is a tremendously demanding play, requiring the actor to really trawl the depths of desperation and peaks of ecstacy. Radcliffe is a rubbish actor.

but you've only seen him portray a completely cliched and two dimensional character so far, who knows what else he's got in him

A decent actor makes cliched and two dimensional characters come to life.

i knew that response was coming back, and as to the particular matter i'm not necessarily disagreeing because i don't suspect chappy does have anything more in him. But there is very little you can do with harry potter imho, especially when you first played him at 11 yrs old or something.

it's a hell of a lot to ask a kid to play a cliched teenage magician character and somehow imbue it with some brandoesque quality across 5 films

We've adopted the word watschnpappn for that. From German or Bavarian or Austrian... one of those.

Dear god! He has become a freak. He looks like a child rapist.

He does actually.

Luckily we have a Ministry to deal with people like him now.

There is a certain air of a pubescent Widow Twanky about him.

Do you know what pantomime is, Jon? It's a strange old British theatrical tradition. Widow Twanky is a pantomime character.

He looks feverish, but I'm guessing it's just the effect of a high-powered camera flash on an unadorned pasty English face.

JM, it's pantomime, not mine, and Funko, it dates back to Greek theater
