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."

As if it needed even more hype, Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter himself, said Thursday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) that this is the best film yet in the series.

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."

Emma Watson talks about her post 'Harry Potter' career on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'The last installment of the 'Harry Potter' series, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2,' opens Friday, which means Emma Watson is officially finished with her duties as Hermione. Watson said Tuesday on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) that she once thought she might not end up in the entertainment industry after 'Potter,' but now feels like she just graduated from "the most incredible film school," and is excited about continuing her career as an actress.

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.

Rowling's novels. 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) showed us madness from the red carpet as thousands of fans clogged Trafalgar Square and the stars of the series marveled at the experience.

"This is a fitting send off," said Daniel Radcliffe, also known as Harry Potter. "It feels right. It feels like we're doing justice to what is not just a fantastic film but a fantastic series." Emma Watson, who plays Hermione, said she felt like she was having an "out-of-body experience," that it was overwhelming but a "beautiful moment."

Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, said it had been an important part of his life. "To have it just suddenly end is quite a weird feeling," he said. A weird feeling for him, for the thousands of people trying to get a glimpse of the stars in London, and for the millions of fans worldwide. 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' opens in the U.S. on Friday, July 15.

Harry Potter and the Curse of the CNN Pranksters - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 2nd 2007 10:44AM

The hell?

Did anyone else see this the other day? I was watching CNN and they had a report about Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe doing Equus on stage. They showed one of the controversial photos while the entertainment reporter was giving the story, and then the next photo they showed was of a guy who looked to be around 40, sitting naked in some serious pose, reading a book about wrestling icon Jerry Lawler. And they kept the photo on there for a lot longer than they should have. The reporter never stopped talking and never explained what happened, he just kept going and then handed things back to the main anchor. Very odd.

daniel radcliffeIn what can only be interpreted as an attempt to diversify his acting portfolio, Daniel Radcliffe will star in a made-for-television movie for British network ITV. The actor, whom I will forever identify as Harry Potter, will play the son of real-life author Rudyard Kipling ("The Jungle Book", "Gunga Din").

Called My Boy Jack, the television movie is about John Kipling's death in World War I during the Battle of Loos. After his son's death, Kipling wrote "If any question why we died/Tell them, because our fathers lied". Makers of the television movie say the WWI storyline will have present-day applications to the Iraq war.
