Daniel Radcliffe to Make Comic-Con Debut—And It's Not About "Harry Potter"


The "Harry Potter" star will make his first appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, but it'll have nothing to do with our favorite British wizard.

Daniel Radcliffe is set to make his San Diego Comic-Con debut, but sorry, it'll have nothing to do with Harry Potter.

Instead, his visit will have everything to do with his new film, "Horns." Radcliffe will sit on a panel for the fantasy horror flick, joined by director Alexandre Aja and novelist Joe Hill in the San Diego Convention Center's Hall H at 3 p.m. on Friday, July 25.

There, at one of the largest entertainment conventions in the country, they'll show the trailer for the movie, which follows the life of a young man once he grows horns after his girlfriend's murder. "Harry Potter" it's not.

Despite the fact that "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling has released a new story starring the wizard, Radcliffe doesn't see himself reprising that role any time soon—not that anyone has officially asked, either.

“My inclination is to say no,” Radcliffe said. “I don’t think it’s a question—not even a hypothetical at this moment. As I understand it it’s a very, very short piece, I’m not sure it is of itself worthy of adaptation to film. [Harry] is at least 12 years older in it than I am now. I don’t think I’ll have to worry about it for a long time."

In addition to "Horns," Radcliffe's post-"Potter" career has included the U.K. TV series "A Young Doctor's Notebook," co-starring Jon Hamm, the romantic comedy film "What If," and theater work on Broadway.
