Daniel Radcliffe Going Gay....For Film

Daniel Radcliffe, better known by millions as Harry Potter, has said that he's desperate explore his sexuality on film, and that means playing gay.

The 18-year-old actor is planning to audition for the role of a boy at boarding school in the 30s who falls in love with his best friend and later becomes an undercover agent in a remake of the 1984 movie "Another Country".

The film adaptation of Julian Mitchell's play, which originally starred Rupert Everett in both the stage and screen version, is loosely based on the life of Guy Burgess, who became a double agent working for the Soviet Union, and was famously part of the Cambridge Five spy ring.

Speaking at a press conference for his latest movie "December Boys", he said, "I'd never play a gay character just for the sake of playing a gay character. If the script was good, and it was a good gay character then, I'm 18, and so the parts I'm going to be getting will be open for around that age range."

"And around that age range is when people are exploring sexuality, so those are the parts I think I will be involved in."

Radcliffe will also be reprising his nude stage role in 'Equus' when the play moves to Broadway this month.
