Dan Radcliffe is busy playing gay at the moment, as Allen Ginsberg in the movie Kill your Darlings. Now the first set pics of him in costume has shown up over at Huffpo. You can see one of them above, then click below to enlarge some more, alongside a pic of the real Ginsberg.
Kill Your Darlings speculates around real-life events involving beat generation legends Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William S Burroughs. They were all brought together by Columbia University student Lucien Carr, who was implicated in (and served time for) the murder of David Kammerer, who was found dead in Hudson River in 1944. Carr claimed the death was an accident after Kammerer made an unwanted sexual advance, although they had known each other for several years (and it has been claimed they were lovers). The events surrounding the death are said to have had a massive impact on the beat circle, and tempered the idealism they had felt beforehand.
The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Cross, and Kyra Sedgwick and should be in cinemas later this year.
