Daniel Radcliffe talks about 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' on 'The Early Show'In between balancing an unrelenting media junket for 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' and his eight shows a week on Broadway for 'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying,' Daniel Radcliffe has shown himself to be a thoughtful, engaging young man. His intellectual prowess was on full display Wednesday on 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS), when he used a historical quotation from Louis XIV to put the end of the Potter series into perspective.

Radcliffe offered a paraphrased version of King Louis XIV's dying words to explain his feelings on the end of the franchise: "Why are you crying? Did you imagine I was immortal?"

"It's that same thing of, it had to end sometime," he said. "And we may as well just celebrate it rather than getting too sad."

Daniel Radcliffe, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'It may have come as something of a shock to Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), but hardcore fans of the 'Harry Potter' film franchise could tell that Daniel Radcliffe and his acting cohorts remained enthusiastic about the wonder they were creating every step of the way for the past decade.

If nothing else, the huge piles of cash and the fame had to have helped, but we give a lot of the credit to the sheer fun that must have gone into even the hardest days of shooting. It's just such a magical world to be able to play in.

Stewart was more impressed that they were able to navigate their teen years without becoming jaded by the whole experience, "because as a 14-year old, being jaded is in many ways your job."

Radcliffe called the movie a "fantastic piece of filmmaking," the best in the series "by such a long way." And he's happy the franchise is going out on such a high note. "I'm so proud of it, and I haven't been pleased with all the films," he said. "Like number six, I was very open about the fact that I particularly hated my own performance in it. This film is so far ahead of anything else we've done."

Watson was reassured acting was the path she wants to continue on after shooting the just-completed film 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower.' "I just had the best time," she said. "And, you know, having an experience outside of 'Potter' that was just as great kind of solidified for me that acting is really what I wanted to do and really focus on."

Emma Watson Won't Talk About Daniel Radcliffe's Drinking, But Will About Her Own (VIDEO)

Emma Watson, 'Late Show with David Letterman'David Letterman was a man on a mission when Emma Watson appeared on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). Here was a young lady who'd worked with Daniel Radcliffe since they were both children. Surely she would know all about Radcliffe's admitted past drinking problems.

"To be honest, it's really not something I genuinely know much about," Watson said. "He is the one to talk about it."

That seems reasonable, so Letterman decided that if Watson wouldn't spill about Radcliffe drinking, perhaps she would open up about herself. By golly, someone's going to talk about someone drinking on this show!

Rupert Grint talks about 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' on 'TodayIf you've already read the 'Harry Potter' books, you know there are some surprises in store for the final installment of the film version, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2,' which opens Friday. Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, was on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) Monday to talk about how the franchise ends, and what the cast's future might hold.

Hoda Kotb
pointed out that 'Deathly Hallows -- Part 2' has more action and is darker than previous films. "This is kind of the war now," said Grint. "This is a war film. We become soldiers, and characters naturally don't make it to the end." While he confirmd that Ron makes it, he wouldn't say if Hermione lives, and couldn't hold back a wry smirk when asked, much to Kathie Lee and Hoda's dismay. We're guessing the gals haven't read the books.

Daniel Radcliffe on 'The View''Harry Potter' star Daniel Radcliffe is no strange to theater. However, he's not quite used to appearing on stage fully clothed.

Radcliffe stopped by 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) to promote 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying' and of course 'Equus,' the play that required him to appear nude in front of a live audience, came up.

'How to Succeed' is a bit less revealing, Radcliffe told Joy Behar when she asked if he felt overdressed in the role.

Radcliffe said he feels much more relaxed in 'Business,' and that it's "fantastic" to no have to appear nude. "I'm sick of hearing actors say 'Oh, it's so liberating, it's so wonderful,'" said Radcliffe. No it's not, it's terrifying."

Daniel Radcliffe, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Even though Daniel Radcliffe is leaving behind the friends he made at Hogwart's through a decade as Harry Potter, as revealed on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), he's found a new brotherhood, and he gets to sing with them.

Radcliffe has been cast in the Broadway revival of 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.' And to whet our appetites, he brought along some members of the cast and performed one of the production pieces for David Letterman's audience.

One thing we couldn't help noticing was that Radcliffe was noticeably smaller than all of the other guys in the 'Brotherhood of Man.' In a way, though, that height differential worked in his favor, as it made him stand out even more than his crazy suit. He looked like a boy addressing the men around him.

Now that the film franchise is finally coming to a close, it's time to start thinking about what's next. He's tried his hand at stage productions and other movies and television work, but 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) afforded him a whole new opportunity.

While Radcliffe admitted he's always been impressed with stand-up comedians, he also thinks they have to be insane to get on stage like that. He's never done it, but admitted to doing "loads of horrendous jokes."

That was enough to get Jimmy Fallon on board. "You wanna do one tonight?" he asked. "I do it every night. It's fun."

'Harry Potter's' Daniel Radcliffe on the Weirdest Gift He's Ever GottenAs the star of the 'Harry Potter' film series, Daniel Radcliffe has no doubt received a bunch of odd presents from fans. ... Flowers, love letters, marriage proposals, and so forth. But on 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America), the young actor discussed the weirdest gift he's ever gotten -- which came all the way from Japan.

While talking with Graham Norton, Daniel mentioned the gift of an enormous plastic novelty ear -- he got it randomly in the mail, sent courtesy of an adoring Japanese fan. Unfortunately, Radcliffe didn't know what to do with it. At first he thought the present might be an odd insult, considering the fact that he has "quite small ears." But it wasn't an insult -- and the actor eventually got to the bottom of it.

After bringing up the "plastic novelty ear" in interviews, Daniel talked about it during a Japanese press conference. Here's what happened next: "The whole place just cracked up! It was just some great Japanese joke that I hadn't been let in on!" So what was the joke?

Daniel Radcliffe Says He's Been Lying About His Dating Life for Ten Years (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Nov 18th 2010 1:30PM
Daniel Radcliffe on 'The Early Show'Daniel Radcliffe has spent the past ten years of his life involved in the immensely popular 'Harry Potter' franchise, playing a wizard, fighting a bevy of classy English actors also playing wizards, riding mythical creatures, and becoming the biggest hero of a made up sport. It has made him a famous actor and a tabloid target.

Now don't be too shocked, but apparently the mythical boy wizard has been lying to us for ten years about his personal life. At least, that's what he told Harry Smith of 'The Early Show' (Weekdays, 7AM on CBS) in a sit-down interview today. A clearly amused Radcliffe, offered Smith a mock apology when asked if he is seeing someone now. "I could say yes and be happily single, but I'm going to say no. Because I'm not."

No big secret was revealed -- he didn't admit that he owns a Segue or that he has spent the past ten years leading a debauched life frequenting underground Buck Whaley clubs and hallucinating on whiskey cut with rancid butter. He's just not telling us if he is seeing someone, and we're all entitled to our privacy, aren't we?
