Daniel RadcliffeIt’s nice to see that Daniel Radcliffe is stretching beyond his role as Harry Potter... not that his bank account is exactly suffering with the never-ending films in the Harry Potter series. It’s been announced that Radcliffe will take on a role as the son of British author Rudyard Kipling in the TV drama My Boy Jack. The film tells the story of how Kipling was able to get his 17-year-old son an officer’s commission in the British army during WWI. Unfortunately, the boy never returned from the trenches and his body was never found, despite Kipling and his wife’s best efforts to locate him. “I’ve always been fascinated by the subject and think it’s as relevant today as it ever was, with young men still sacrificing their lives in the name of war,” said Radcliffe of his upcoming role. The movie will air next fall on Britain’s ITV1—no word on when we’ll be seeing it in the states.
