Milhouse - Ow

(no subject)

Those who think that Daniel Radcliffe will certainly one day shake off the yoke of being known to one and all as Harry Potter would be wise to check this CNN story, starting right with the URL itself:

http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/07/28/potter.nude.reut/index.html

The story at the URL is strange enough; Daniel Radcliffe will make his London stage debut as Alan Strang in Peter Schaffer's Equus, with Richard "Vernon Dursley" Griffiths starring in the show as well, presumably playing Dr. Dysart.

Strange? Sure. The casting is pretty funny to think about. But disturbing? Nah. What's really disturbing is the fact that CNN feels the pressing need to spin the story as OMG HARRY POTTER GETS STARKERS LOLZ.

That's celebrity, kids!
