Daniel Radcliffe has been cast as the lead in the thriller Horns (based on Joe Hill's novel by the same name), in which the main character wakes up one day to find himself (falsely, it seems) accused of his girlfriend's rape and murder. On top of that, he's sprouted horns that grant him all kinds of powers, including the gift of tongues and the ability access other people's deepest and ugliest secrets. Seems like a good fit; it'll obviously take a little bit of magic for audiences to accept Radcliffe in a darker role.
