Daniel Radcliffe parties with Dublin GAA minor team and may appear in upcoming futuristic Frankenstein movie

September 29th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has been a busy boy between going boozing in Dublin and getting involved in new projects…

Yahoo! is reporting that the actor, who is in Dublin filming The F Word, ended up at a party with the Dublin Minor GAA team after they won last Sunday’s All-Ireland and seems, from the pics, to have had a lot of, em, fun…

According to GAA player Conor Mulally the actor was wandering the city at three in the morning, got chatting to the team and ended up at a party at team captain David Byrne’s house, as the pictures on the page show. It’s fair to say he probably had a drink or two, Conor went on to say the team paid for the actor’s taxi after the party as he had no cash on him, despite being worth £54 million.

Dublin player Niall Walsh wrote on his Facebook page: “Walkin down Grafton Street round 3ish bump into Harry Potter head gone lookin for the party, get few pics, get our wands out for quick leak then into a taxi to Capt David Byrnes for the after-sesh.”

In other news, Radcliffe is also tipped for one of the lead roles in Paul McGuigan’s (Lucky Number Slevin, TV’s Sherlock) upcoming Frankenstein, very loosely based on the classic Mary Shelley book.

Apparently Radcliffe is keen on the Hunchback role in McGuigan’s futuristic take on the tale, the character will be the assistant to Henry Frankenstein as he creates the monster which is described as “pathologically dirty and dressed in old clown’s clothing”.

The actor, 23, has many movies in the pipeline, including the lead role in the adaptation of Joe Hill’s superb supernatural thriller/mystery Horns.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
