I think the answer to this very fundamental question posed in my article’s header is “nah.” But look: I’m a sucker for guys like Daniel Radcliffe, guys introduced to the world through their casting in major franchise tentpoles who could just get by for the rest of their careers coasting through middling studio prestige fare, but who instead just do whatever the fuck they want because they fucking can: Robert Pattinson and Dan Stevens also come to mind.
For what it’s worth, I put in a pitch for this piece before Jason Lei Howden raged out on innocent people over Twitter and basically tanked everyone’s desire to write about Gun Akimbo, a film I’d been looking forward to since I first heard about it. One, I love Deathgasm. Two, I love Daniel Radcliffe*. But this piece hangs on Radcliffe as its peg, and not Guns Akimbo**, so I think I’m in the clear here.
You can read the full piece over at The Week.
*Not Daniel Boringcliffe.
**…I actually kinda dig the movie, even if Howden sucks a lot.
