Here is a first look from Entertainment Weekly at Daniel Radcliffe in the upcoming film, Horns based on the novel by Joe Hill.
Radcliffe’s character Ignatius “Ig” Perrish is a less-than-angelic young man who wakes up to find horns growing from his forehead. “It’s a very, very different type of part than anything I’ve done before,” teases Radcliffe.
Today marked the first time the actor settled into a Vancouver makeup chair for several hours of prosthetics application.
Radcliffe describes his new role as “deeply emotional and also incredibly outrageous in some ways.” His character 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.”
