Daniel Radcliffe Is Feeling Horny
First pic of him in make-up for Horns

Daniel Radcliffe has moved on successfully from his days at Hogwarts, winning acclaim on Broadway and scaring us all with The Woman In Black. Now he's going even darker, starring in Alexandre Aja’s adaptation of Joe Hill’s book Horns. The first pic of Radcliffe sporting the titular forehead-wear is online at EW and can be glimpsed below. 

Horns, which was scripted by Keith Bunin based on Hill’s book, focuses on Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), a troubled man dealing with accusations that he raped and murdered his girlfriend.

But Ig, who struggles with alcoholism and a variety of other issues, is intent on finding out who really committed the crime. And when he awakens one morning to find he’s sprouting strange horns – invisible to everyone else, but somehow able to make people confess their sins – he thinks he might finally have the means to solve the case. Or at least get some revenge, and through that, closure.

The likes of Max Minghella, Juno Temple, Joe Anderson and Kelli Garner are also aboard the movie, which is currently shooting. For more, head to EW’s site.

Are they changing stuff
In a previous post you said he was going to be blue. In the book Ig turns red, I won't spoil it. Now you say his horns are invisible. Thats not in the book either. His horns are visible but people forget they have seen them as soon as they look away, leaving a lot of the people he encounters troubled as if they can't figure out what is odd about Ig. This is a great book and I am looking forward to it and Radcliffe certainly looks the part as far as I am concerned (do you think they are More

Is Daniel turning into...
...Rufus Sewell? Or is it just me? Not Horror's biggest fan, but I'm looking forward to this one. More

I'm reading Horns at the mo.
Relies more on the Stand By Me style flashback storytelling (albeit with more lurid details) as opposed to the more supernatural elements, but its a very good read. What comes down though is if Aja will concentrate more on the drama aspects or add more of his splatter-like qualities like his past films....which I SERIOUSLY hope he doesn't. More
