The Walrus BS: Different accent, different - actor? (54* d) RE: BS: Different accent, different - actor? 03 Aug 07

Returning to actors being cast against type.

I don't know if this counts, but it appears Daniel (Harry Potter) Radcliffe has been cast as John Kipling in the upcoming film "My Boy Jack", which, I believe, deals with the relationship between Rudyard Kipling and his son John, with John's enlistment* and his death at Loos and it effect on the family.

I've seen one photograph of young Mr. Radcliffe in the role of John and he looks the part.


* RK pulled strings and called in favours to get Jack a commission (eventually in the Irish Guards) despite his poor sight, and suffered heavy guilt after John's death**.
** Just read some of the epitaphs of the Great War.
