Daniel Radcliffe: Cause of Mexico Overcrowding

It appears that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe hasn’t lost any magic across the border in Mexico.  News report state Radcliffe’s appearance at a red carpet event in Mexico City Thursday evening, for his new film What If, caused such a turnout of fans that local police canceled the event due to overcrowding.

Of course overcrowding is a relative term given how riotous news events can become in Mexico – and that’s just from a media standpoint.  Local reporters and news cameras alone are known to attack their subjects like a pack of Hyenas after a fresh Wilder-beast kill. Read the rest of this entry »

Daniel Radcliffe: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I trailer on #Fandango

The last instalments of the Harry Potter wizard tales have long been in the pipelines.  Not to mention long overdue! 

Seriously, I all but thought they had gone and changed their damn minds and weren’t going to appease our cravings for a big screen ending.

Of course the mega-blockbuster had to be dragged it out into a two part scenario.  In theory, it’s all the better, I think – they have little excuse now to skimp on the book!

But even though we all know how the story plays out, I for one am giddy with delight over the arrival of part 1 this November. 

Now if they were only to stop teasing us with all these trailers!  Well, nothing we can do bout that but click on play and watch it…

Watch the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I trailer on #Fandango.


Daniel Radcliffe: I’m No Pot-Head!

Harry Potter star – Daniel Radcliffe, 20, and his rep have come out with a emphatic denial to a Daily Mirror claim of the young thespian engaging in 420, reports the BBC.

The Mirror quotes house-party guest Wadia Tazi, 26, as stating that Radcliffe “looked spaced out and didn’t look like he knew what was going on.”

His rep has immediately gone on the defensive and released a statement. “We categorically deny the allegations regarding Daniel Radcliffe published in today’s Daily Mirror,” his spokeswoman proclaims.

Adding that although Radcliffe “does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this.”

At 20, me thinks it wouldn’t be great harm or shock that he’d dabble in some weed. Who the hell can judge? Never mind Brits commonly seen pilgrimage to the neighboring Netherlands to dabble in some Coffee Shop herbs.

There are also some holes in the story. Tazi’s claim of not recognizing the international star for one!

“I didn’t recognise him as he looked so different to what I expected from the films. When my friend told me who he was, I was shocked,” Tazi claims.

She goes on to add that “he didn’t want us to recognize him. When I said he looked like that actor in Lord of the Rings [Elijah Wood], he got a bit funny and said, ‘No, that’s not me’. He looked pretty uncomfortable.” Ummm, right… Elijah? Get real girl!

I find her statements hard to swallow and I have little gag-reflexes. Sounds like a bunch of bull. Leave Harry Alone!

Rupert Grint: Sexy Redhead

On the “Harry Potter” theme, I must stop at Rupert Grint.

Ordinarily red heads pass by me without registering on the radar – seriously – but Rupert sure comes in as one surprising exception. Perhaps its that Carly Simon mouth – makes you wonder…!

A friend has concluded that it has lots to do with his personality. He comes across as a fun chap – which was in full effect during his red carpet time at the NY premiere last night.

So here’s one for copper top!

Work it out sexy.

Daniel Radcliffe: Fresh Prince

The years are being most kind to Daniel Radcliffe. Even after his long successful run baring it all in “Equus” the young man has that fresh and just out of the box brand new look.

His skin looks so clean and effervescent that it makes you want to shield him from the world. Yeah, thats it… I can totally see how some cougar made him her prey.

Here is the boy who plays the boy wizard who went on to star on both the West End and the Great White Way, attending the “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” NY premiere, held in Midtown Manhattan last night.

The crowds were at an all time high at bout five rows deep – block long. Assuredly this beat the masses that gathered for the last Potter prem over at Radio City a few years back.

Alas, I was not one of the lucky to get a tix to see the flick, so I am left marking x’s on my calendar until the July 15th release!

Emma Watson: Letterman Beauty

Emma Watson wowed the crowds during her visit to The Letterman Show yesterday afternoon.

I have to say that girl sure has come into her looks nicely. And fashionably so.

The baby fat is gone and what is left is a nice petite frame. The beauty is front and center.

Work it out, girl!

Watson and the rest of the Potter clan will be premiering the latest installment of the franchise in midtown Manhattan later today.

The drama will undoubtedly be brewing as word has it that a slew of paps have been denied coverage.

Should prove interesting…

Potted Potter: Jamie Waylett

This gives a whole new meaning to the Harry Potter franchise!

19 year old Jamie Waylett, who plays evil sidekick in the wizard flicks, was busted with controlled substances believed to be the 420 equivalent of cannabis, reports the BBC.

“The car was searched and officers found eight bags of a substance believed to be cannabis,” a Scotland Yards spokesman said.

By all accounts eight bags is enough to make for a happy reunion I think. Of course, given that Brits aren’t as lax’ed as their Dutch neighbors didn’t help the pudgy actor.

It also didn’t help any that after his arrest, officers raided and found additional material in his home – including plants believed to be of the same herbs!

“Officers found a number of plants believed to be cannabis plants and equipment for the cultivation,” Scotland Yard said.

Sounds like ole Jamie has branched out and found a new profession to fall back on.

Waylett is expected back in court this July, just in time for the next installment of the blockbuster series. Hows that for timing and free press?

Pattinson’s Twilight

British hottie – Robert Pattinson, 22, has taken NY’s tween-bops’ panties by storm!

Prettiness is currently in Gotham promoting his next film “Twilight,” the first of a sure to be hit franchise, based on the bestseller series. The reception for his appearances have surprised even the most jaded of natives, drawing hordes lining up blocks two and three deep.

At his appearance at Planet Hollywood for a memorabilia donation and hand print ceremony, the boys and girls were floored by his long, lean and effervescent beauty. (Alrite, I was floored dammit… Uncut and uncensored!)

First he marveled audiences with his clean cut Cedrick Diggler in the Harry Potter films and now, ripened with age, he is firmly positioned to drink the riches of his loins – and get the bank to back it!

I LUV me a vampire flick. They never fail to deliver and its guaranteed to be filled with homo-erotic overtones!

I’m there Robby!
