Daniel Radcliffe plays dead on red carpet for new film
Moscow, July 2 (IANS) Actor Daniel Radcliffe played dead on the red carpet at the Moscow International Film Festival premiere of “Swiss Army Man”.
Radcliffe wore a full navy blue suit and patterned dress shirt for the red carpet event, but instead of posing for photographs, he got into character and simply lay down on the ground looking pale and dead, reports usmagazine.com.
In the film, which also stars Paul Dano as a suicidal man, Radcliffe plays a corpse that Dano rides across the ocean like a Jet Ski. But rather than being propelled by an engine, the corpse is mobilized by the “Harry Potter” star’s flatulence.
The film premiered to mixed reviews at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, with an eyewitness saying that the audience had no qualms about expressing their distaste.
“Many people walked out during the farting montage. At least 25 per cent of the theater,” the eyewitness said.
