Dan Radcliffe Is ‘The Real Deal’ In ‘Kill Your Darlings’

MTV News caught up with Jack Huston at the premiere for season three of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire.” You may know Huston from his badass role as Richard Harrow, but next year you’re going to see him alongside Daniel Radcliffe in the beat poet-murder mystery, “Kill Your Darlings.”

And wouldn’t you know it? Huston had the nicest things to say about his young costar, Radcliffe.

“I’ve never seen [anything like] the way he works, such tenacity,” Huston said. “He’s got a hunger for the craft. It was one of the loveliest experiences.”

Huston said that when “Kill Your Darlings” does hit next year, Harry Potter fans may not be prepared.

“I think people are going to be shocked about how good he is,” Huston said. “He’s really coming into himself. It’s very hard getting out of the shadow of something like ’Harry Potter’ because… it’s as big as it gets in the film world. I think he really wants to be considered the actor he’s capable of actually becoming. I’m happy that I got to work with him and actually see him do what he’s capable of doing.”
