How annoying would it have been to get a brand-new Harry Potter with only one or two movies left in the series? Well, it was pretty unlikely that that was going to happen. And now it definitely won’t: The young Mr. Radcliffe just inked the deal for the remainder of the movie series.
From the actor’s very own fansite: “I am pleased to inform you that it has been confirmed for us by Dan’s Publicist that Dan has, in fact, signed on for the last two Harry Potter films. Dan will begin filming in September on “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.” He has also signed on to return and reprise his role as Harry in the very last film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” This will “mark a place” in history for Dan and fulfill his wishes as he stated more than three years ago that he would like to portray “Harry” in all of the films.”
Cool. And then after that he can spend 40 years trying to make people forget he was Harry Potter so he can play a romantic lead or a psycho killer. Then again, I can’t even guess how much cash the kid made for this series, so maybe he’ll just go buy a small country.
