Small Bite: Radcliffe takes on ‘risque’ role in “Kill Your Darlings.”

Full Platter:

Say goodbye to the wizard-boy version of Daniel Radcliffe you used to know, because it looks like the risk-taking grown up Radcliffe is here to stay.

At this year's Sundance Film Festival, debuted his role as gay poet Allen Ginsberg in the premiere of "Kill Your Darlings." The film is said to be quite risque, with Radcliffe going nude for a sex scene with another man, among other bold moments from the 23-year-old.

Radcliffe famously had his first nude scene in his Broadway debut in "Equus," and his director for "Kill Your Darlings," John Krokidas said the actor was very professional about the nudity and gay love scenes in the film, showing little anxiety. Krokidas, who is gay, helped Radcliffe through the scenes, and even pulled a co-worker to help him demonstrate.

"I might have done it on purpose to make everyone laugh, too, but I also wanted to make sure that we got it right," Krokidas said. "And other films that have depicted certain moments of sexuality like this, it doesn't happen that way. And at least for cinematic history, I wanted to get that moment right. But Dan watched, observed, found his own connection like he did any other scene and dove right into it."

And while many people pushing to get into the premiere to get a peak at their hero Harry Potter instead of his new character Allen Ginsberg, Radcliffe says he doesn't mind.

"I don't care why people come and see films. If they come and see a film about the beat poets because they saw me in 'Harry Potter,' fantastic. That's a wonderful thing," Radcliffe said. "I feel like I have an opportunity to capitalize on 'Potter' by doing work that might not otherwise get attention. If I can help get a film like this attention, that's without doubt, that's a great thing."
