Posted by John Admin

It felt as though there wasn’t a single topic left out when news anchor Katie Couric interviewed Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) recently for CBS News. The two talked about Radcliffe’s latest role in the Broadway musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” as well as his upcoming film “The Woman in Black” and the final “Harry Potter.” Other topics of conversation included his relationship with J.K. Rowling, his involvement with The Trevor Project, and his love of reading.

Watch the extended, 45 minute long interview here.

Radcliffe will be making several television appearances in the next couple of days beginning with NBC’s Today Show on Tuesday, March 15th. He is expected to perform a number from “How to Succeed…” during the program which airs between 7 and 11 a.m. Additionally, Radcliffe will be on Live! with Regis and Kelly on Thursday, March 17th.

“How to Succeed…” is now playing. More information can be found on the production’s official website.

Avatar ImageJeannine says: Good interview...the longer version is even more informative....would be so nice to see him dance in person. Avatar ImageFresca says: Dan is a good actor, and talented in many ways. If I could, I would go to NY right now to see the show.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: I wish I could see "How to....". But I can't wait for when he does a number on tv!Avatar ImageWinkyxx says: go dan! <3Avatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: I wondered if Katie understood what Dan meant when he said some people could "express themselves epigrammatically, brilliantly!" That's far too multisyllabic a word for American audiences... and broadcasters.... LOL. (I am American, don't get on me.) It was a great interview --w hat a fine man Dan is turning out to be!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: Dan is just plain awesome. He is a wonderful actor and has the most charming personality. Let's hope he will do better in the future with many of these roles.Avatar ImageethanHP says: weasleywannabe1997, she wrote one tweet saying she looked it up in the dictionary (me too! :) ). There is a longer version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rj1_TTMY9Cc Very good!Avatar ImageAnnaGrace says: I really wish I could go see "How the Succeed..." :( Can't wait to see him perform on TV. Good luck, Dan!Avatar Imagekiwimci says: ... I think I've fallen in love with him a little bit. I'd love to have a pint with Daniel. I just love his interviews and this was a particularly good one. Thank you Katie CouricAvatar ImageSorceress25 says: I can't wait to go! My husband got us tickets for my birthday! I'm going March 30th!Avatar ImageCCB5Potterfan34 says: I am so proud of Dan. He is just wonderful, and I, too, wish that I could see him in How to Succeed. I am 60 and have seen him grow and mature and I see how he is very brave to try many things. He is quite exceptional, and I think, one day, he will win an Oscar. Love Daniel a lot.Avatar Imagekatielilly says: omg I just realized I'm going to New York for spring break to visit my grandparents! I have to ask them if we can go and see the show!!Avatar ImageMiss.Weasley says: Whooo, way to go Daniel. I think he's on a great track with his career, even though he had a gigantic gig (Harry Potter) he didn't rest and just slip into the shadows and become history. He's actually doing something! And it's great to see him hired 'cause some people would never hire actors who are linked to a specific role too much. I can see how he's trying to wash off the Harry Potter theme with doing things like Equs (from what I've seen a little bit disturbing, but meaningful and a though role to play), no this (wished I could see it!!!) GOOD JOB DANIEL!Avatar ImageCDR says: He's AMAZING!!!! He's so smart:he's GREAT!!!The passage about Twitter's so interesting,i totally agree with him.Go Dan,Go!!!!!!Avatar Imagecrikeyhunter says: When I scored his autograph after the play with my 12 year old son he was joking around about the Slytherin wool hat my son was wearing and said he forgives him for it...he personalized his playbill and was really kind...I let him know he is an excellent role model....Dan is an incredibly nice and genuine person. And thanks Leaky for the updates! Great Job!!Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Not only the former child stars, but all the spoiled celebrity prima donnas out there ought to give Dan a listen - they could learn a thing or two about how it's possible to achieve high-profile success and still remain an unpretentious and decent and caring human being. He does seem like the kind of guy with whom one could spend a very pleasant evening playing Scrabble or talking about what books you'd just read.Avatar ImageHagiographer13 says: This was a FABULOUS interview, and I highly recommend watching in Hi-rez via @katiecouric: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7359450n Dan's song-and-dance turn with the EQUUS boys in 2008's Broadway Cares charity event showed me he had the musical chops to carry it off -- and he is a PERFECT Pierpont Finch. Looking forward to TODAY tomorrow! :)Avatar Imagecloethebelatrixlover says: Amazing job Daniel! Wish you were actually reading this right now... that would be sooo cool! Oh, and i also say good job to all of the people who wrote well thought-out comments, unlike me :DAvatar Imageladydars says: Does anyone else think that in another life, Daniel may make a good History teacher? Loves the History channel, reading and kids?Avatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: I will see it in May!!!Avatar Imagered bull hats says: Good job. come on guy.http://www.hats-club.com Avatar ImageJessSnape says: Dan is amazing. I love that he is involved in the Trevor Project. It is an awesome organization to help struggling young people. Avatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: cant wait to see itttttttttttttAvatar ImageFiniteincantatum says: Hoping to watch it!Avatar Imageginnypotter4848 says: I saw how to suceed two days ago front row he was a yard away from me it was amazing even if he wasnt in it it was worth going if you want to go go now before it is officially open i rushed tickets for the wednesday matinee for 30 dollar if you buy any of the first 8 tickets from rush youll get front row just thought yall would want to know that!
