Naked Boy Wizard Stabs Horses

Really, it was worth reporting on this story just so we could write this headline wasn't it?

So here it is: Daniel 'Harry Potter' Radcliffe is all set to staras Alan Strang in Equus when it comes to the West End next year.

In case you haven't read it, we aren't really spoling anything for you if we say that Strang's favourite hobby is sneaking around stabbing horse's in the eyes with big metal spikes. Not exactly quidditch is it?

There's also a scene in the play which requires the actor playing Strang to ride a horse naked.

Radcliffe's on-screen 'uncle' Richard Griffiths will play the psychiatrist character. Thankfully there's no naked scenes for him.

So does this mean that when the play opens next March, the audience will be half full of chin-stroking theatre buffs and half full of tweeny Potter fans waiting for Danny in the buff? Should be interesting.
