Daniel Radcliffe Takes A 'Business' Break
Daniel Radcliffe, here walking near his home in New York's West Village on Tuesday, has caused a major problem for Warner Brothers, the company behind the Harry Potter franchise. This summer, Radcliffe is starring in the 50th anniversary revival of the Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
Even though the final movie in the Potter series is finished filming, Radcliffe still has obligations to promote the movie, but is under contract to his Broadway show to be on stage every night. As a compromise, Warner Bros. is going to pay $500,000 to rent out the Hirschfield Theater while Radcliffe helps with the promotion of the final Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, according to the New York Post's Page Six. Even a wizard can't break his contract, apparently!
