Harry Potter actor to play gay poet Allen Ginsberg

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Daniel Radcliffe doesn't mind hearing that schoolgirls were staking him out at Utah's Sundance Film Festival, hoping for a Harry Potter sighting.

In fact, Radcliffe is happy if his Potter fame draws interest for what he wants to do with the rest of his career, such as his bold turn as young gay poet Allen Ginsberg in the Sundance premiere "Kill Your Darlings."

Radcliffe goes nude for an explicit sex scene with another man, makes out with co-star Dane DeHaan and also appears in another sex scene with a library clerk.

As with his Broadway debut in "Equus," which also featured a nude scene, Radcliffe said his celebrity from the boy wizard franchise might lure fans who wouldn't have seen a film such as "Kill Your Darlings."
