Daniel Radcliffe to play Allen Ginsberg?

We all love Daniel Radcliffe, can we agree on that? He’s the best! When he first started acting he was awful, obviously. But recently he’s really come into his own. We’re super excited for The Woman in Black and think he’s the best all the time.

So, accordingly, the news that he will most likely be playing Allen Ginsberg in upcoming thriller Kill Your Darlings fills us with unbridled joy. The film, set for release in 2012, will revolve around the relationship between Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs and a man named Lucien Carr – who served time for the murder of his lover in 1944. Word is that Radcliffe will be replacing Jesse Eisenberg as Ginsberg (who was recently played by James Franco in Howl), and that Chris Evans and Ben Whishaw are lined up to play Kerouac and Carr. Interesting cast! And we’re 100% sure Danny will do a terrific job because he is the best at everything all the time.
