Daniel Radcliffe was uncanny in a literary page-to-screen effort that we all know was J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter. Radcliffe is playing a literary icon this time out, and that is Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings. The John Krokidas film Kill Your Darlings hits theaters October 18 and has released its first clip and a few new photos as well.
This first clip features Radcliffe’s Ginsberg when he first meets Dane DeHaan’s Lucien Carr.
As teased in the first Kill Your Darlings trailer, the film tells the story of the beginnings of the Beat Generation and finds Radcliffe playing literary legend Ginsberg, with Jack Huston playing Jack Kerouac (On the Road), Ben Foster as William S. Burroughs and DeHaan as Lucien Carr.
Making his first appearance in photo or clip form in Kill Your Darlings is Dexter star Michael C. Hall, who portrays David Kammerer (see below).
