Everyone's favorite boy wizard has chosen his latest trick: making the Brooklyn Bridge appear. Daniel Radcliffe has signed on to the film Brooklyn Bridge, where he will play Washington Roebling, the architect who took over the project after his father, the original head of the project, passed away. According to the film's description, Washington's obsession with his works threatens to destroy both his health and his family life, until his wife intervenes and helps guide him and the project back from the brink. The film, which will be directed by Douglas McGrath, is the latest in a long line of upcoming projects for Radcliffe, including the release of his films The F Word and Horns, and a limited Broadway run in the play The Cripple of Inishmaan.
However, when compared to his other projects, Brooklyn Bridge doesn't have the same appal as say, an black comedy set in 1930s Ireland or a thriller about a guy who grows horns on his forehead after his girlfriend dies, or even a charming romantic comedy about friends falling in love. In fact, it sounds pretty boring, if we're honest. Luckily for Radcliffe, we'll see him in anything he does, no matter how boring it sounds. To prove our dedication, we've come up with five incredibly boring films that we'd still sit through, just to watch him act.
