Harry Potter Star Daniel Radcliffe Prepared for New Role by Jamming Megadeth Song
Actor Daniel Radcliffe, best known for playing Harry Potter in the hugely successful franchise, stars in a new movie 'Horns'(watch the trailer above), and he reveals that Megadeth played a part in his preparation for the role.
'Horns' is a supernatural thriller where Radcliffe plays a man accused of the rape and murder of his girlfriend and uses newly discovered paranormal powers to try to find the real killer. In an interview with Gigwise, Radcliffe says he listened to a particular Megadeth track every day to get into character before filming.
"[I listened to] ‘Sweating Bullets,’ specifically for the lines ‘Hello me, It’s me again / You can subdue but never tame me” and “A dark black past is my / Most valued possession," Radcliffe says. "It’s an insane song and it sounds like a pyschopath talking to himself… and that was very helpful."
'Horn's opens in theaters Friday, Oct. 31. It's based on the novel of the same name by Joe Hill. Watch the video for the song that inspired Radcliffe in the role below.
