Hes grown up to be quite the cutie
I live in Canada the only requirement for posessing pictures is artistic merit, and promotional pictures of a theatrical production certainly qualify. This site is hosted in Canada, and we should keep this thread alive, so I can tell everyone after I see the show at the end of the month.
I agree with dunnadam and the others. As long as it's not meant to be pornographic, pics should not be banned.
PS: Hope you enjoy the show, dunnadam!
Yes I am going, during the previews, and yes I must admit that obviously as I am gay the fact that there will be male nudity has a different influence on me than it would on other members of the audience. The fact that I am gay makes it impossible to remove this influence it being an innate part of my nature.
But I am most certainly not going to see it for the chance to see a young actor's cock. I am more than certain that the staging of the play will not include him standing front stage with a spot light illuminating his penis.
I missed the play when it came out the first time round and was extremely disappointed. I am pleased to have the chance to see it this time even though it seems a difficult and disturbing piece of theatre.
I keep imagining what will happend here the day Dan turns 18... lol
feeling kinda lost...
The usually staid BBC showed the pictures, and the interview where he explains that the overall nude scene only lasts 4 minutes is just a small part of the film. Christian Slater and Stephen Fry commented on the performance, and the poster for the West End show shows a dark b/w photo of DR's body, which looks like a horse's head.
Gotta love the media...The Daily Show had a segment on Equus, where one reporter mentioned that pictures of Radcliffe in Equus confused her young son. I'm pretty sure that anyone wold be confused by the pictures, even with context ...
That, and the Streakers of Azkaban should be a real book ...
Wow, so far 3 full pages of commentary. On CNN yesterday, a reporter did a spot from London about Equus and young Mr. Radcliffe. There was a clip of an interview with Daniel who said, sure he was nervous about doing the nude scene, but that you "get over that quickly - very quickly." Well, that's certainly very nice to know. I guess we can understand the site has to follow laws so as to not get in trouble or be taken off the Net, but its also interesting that it's ok for him to not only be naked, but also do a simulated sex scene with both him and the (older) actress naked. Oh well .......
do u think there are any videos capture Equus? i mean, cant someone just bring a videocamera and tape it all down. that would be sweet
Just FYI here is the original photo of Carlo Festa used to create the currently circulating fake:
Note: This is not a pic of DR.
The photoshopper did an amazing job I think.
Just returned from London and I am now one of the many thousands who have seen the play.
Yes it was appreciated see the boy naked if you can say 'seen' from the back of the stalls, in extremely dim lighting and with him in constant movement.
Even if someone had filmed it clandestinely you would all be complaining that you couldn't see anything.
No it wasn't erotic nor sexually exciting. In fact the boy did a good job for his age and lack of stage experience. Despite the added difficulty of being naked on stage he managed to convey all the anguish, pain and frustration required by the scene. His nudity was not gratuitous and being an essential part removed any sexual/pornographing interpretations to it. In fact I think most of the audience were as drained emotionally as I was by the feelings that his acting evoked during that particular scene.
I saw Equus today and can now say I have seen Harry Potter in the flesh! I sat very near the front. It's a draining and emotional play and I can't think that anyone was actually there for a cheap thrill, I wasn't, I wanted to see the play with this excellent cast, esp Richard Griffiths who is one of our finest, low key actors.
Dan Radcliffe is adequate in the part but not mesmerisingly good. He looks small on the stage which is good for the character - and I mean small all over! Richard Griffiths is fantastic, if very fat. The surprise for me was Will Kemp, I didn't even realise he was in it - if you don't know him he is/was a handsome Royal Ballet dancer who starred in Matthew Bourne's all male Swan Lake. He plays the Horseman and Nugget the horse and the sight of young Daniel stripped to the waist, riding Will (who was in thigh-and-crotch clinging tight jodhpurs), writhing around on ecstacy on his back with the bit between his teeth - well, that's the picture you want to see, it was very homoerotic!
Years ago when I saw Equus in San Francisco, Harry Hamlin played the part of the boy. It wasn't erotic as much as well acted.
WHY is this topic still on here STILL if we can't post the PICS ??!!!!
Oh! I see! Daniel will turn magically from a child to a mature mind adult from one day to other. Because laws say so. that's stupid.
I have two questions....
1) If I have photos on my computer of a pornographic nature and the publicity photos of Daniel Radcliffe, could I get into legal trouble?(Re: Goodfellow's distinction between nudity and intent)
2) I understand that Britain has a lower age for consent, but one can't help but wonder if it's too low. Should Daniel Radcliffe have been older before allowed to do the controversial acts and for the play? Should the laws in the UK be changed?
Well, I went to London, from Canada, spent like $1000 to see the play, and it was worth it. Very good play, well acted. I sat on the stage, and it isn't really clear from the theatres website but you're seeing the back of the actors heads for 1/2 the play so I wouldn't suggest it, the first couple rows seemed better.
As for the nudity, people were saying you didn't even notice it, whatever. All eyes were on the cock. It was kind of dimly lit but I resisted shouting "Turn up the lights, bitches!" The picture circulating was definatley not Daniel. I waited round back of the stage doors for like an hour and he never came out. Richard Griffiths was unbelievably fat. Daniel's acting was great, and the play made me think, well done. He is circumsized too, wonder why?
Everyone can see for themselves here in the US as Equus and the London cast will be appearing on Broadway in Spring 2008.
I so should have taken bets on this...I just found out that Jamie Bell will be taking over for Mr. Radcliffe when Equus hits the Big White Way...I knew that Radcliffe wasn't going to have the part forever, but this is bad news...Well, sort of, I guess. Heh.

OMG - What part of it being illegal to view or discuss an underage minor in any sexual context is unclear to you people???
i must sadly inform you that pedophelia is not desperate
it is immoral and illegal
bring a shitstorm down on your own house, but dont threaten our JUB haven
radcliffe is a good example of why it makes sense that some countries have a legal age of 16 rather than 18 when it comes to matters involving sex. physically he's way ahead of the curve. chest hair, belly button bush, etc. he's more developed at 17 than i was at 19. but laws are laws, so what can you do?
Hmm just remember guys he's someone's little boy.
i think he's hot. and i say just because there're laws in the US saying one thing doesn't mean that everyone here on this site should obey them. Because not everybody on this site is from the US. What about the people from England who wanna see those pics? It's not really fair to them.
What does an ass got to do to survive in a world full of dicks?
I'm not from the US.... isn't he 18 soon? I went to see the play, but I'd like the photo to remember it. Je me souviens.
I think it's about time we take this sticky down. Something tells me we're going to rehash this conversation a few hundred more times.
The world of online forums would be so much nicer if people would just read the damn thread before posting.

Daniel turns 18 years of age on 23rd July 2007.
This DOES NOT mean that it is then OK to post nude (fake) pics of him from the production Equus, or any other pics of an even remotely erotic nature that were taken (or would be presumed to have been taken) prior to his becoming 18.
The Moderators have already removed countless posts with such pics and issued warnings - and this WILL continue for any similar postings.
In short - unless you can prove that, absolutely indisputably, an "erotic" pic of Daniel Radcliffe was taken AFTER his 18th birthday - don't even think about it!
A picture of Daniel taken when he was under the age of 18 is still a picture of a boy under the age of 18. Lucky for those in the USofA, You can post a picture of anyone nude or not, as long as they are not having sex of any kind. Age and nude only counts when the person in the picture is underaged and having sex, that would be a no no. The only other thing would be if the owner of this board do not allow any nude pictures of anyone under the age of 18.
^ That may be the case - but JUB has long had a policy that posting any pics of people under the age of 18 as, shall we say, "lust objects" is not permitted.
While I can understand that some of the (more innocent) pics may be found in the general media - the fact remains that the general media is NOT a Porn Site. This site (JUB) IS - and the site owners do not wish even the slightest connection to anyone lusting over people below the age of 18.
Please remember this.
What Fourof14 has said is incorrect. In the USA, no pictures of anyone under the age of 18 can be shown, either in print, online or movies. It's considered child pornography and it's illegial. Many newsgroups do post them, but they are usually not moderated groups.
Welcome to New Jersey!
He is now officially 18 GMT :]
Ironic that all over the net under-18 nudes are illegal because the main servers are in the USA, where the legal age is 18, whilst here in the UK, where Dan lives, it's OK from 16. Very frustrating!
I presume that from now on it's acceptable to put Dan's head on an obviously over-18 body? I'm surprised there haven't been more fakes of Rupert Grint (Ron) and Tom Felton (Draco), who have been over 18 for a while.
lets see some nudes
unless he takes them today or in the future... his prior stuff is still off limits.

Let me be the one to post the first pic of a legal Dan. Taken on his 18th birthday during a cricket game. Strange, it doesn't even look like him.
oh dear - he looks like that Hobbit Elijah Woods in that pic!
Who dear? Me dear? Gay dear? No dear!
well thats sad. i guess no one will be seing his Equus pics.
