Update March 12: Cody Andrus is the winner of the random drawing, conducted on Random.org.
Set on the remote island of Inishmaan off the west coast of Ireland, word arrives that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighboring island of Inishmore. The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy (Radcliffe), if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life.

“Brotherhood of Man” from How to Succeed is has my favorite Daniel Radcliffe dialogue. Especially when he says “we’re all part of the cold, corporate setup. I think it’s humorous to see him view a business like this and express his feelings for all of his fellow employees and employers to hear. @brett_sanders
My favorite performance of Mr. Radcliffe was right at the beginning of “How to succeed…” when he is still a window cleaner and for a moment he stops, and makes this slightly “I got an idea” grin, I have to say that from that moment on I was completely immerse in the performance, I had seen him before in Equss, which was O.K., but seeing him in a musical comedy knocked me off my feet, from his ability to master the choreography and singing, the fact that he worked admirably on his accent, and from that moment on, just that small moment where he stopped and grin, he sold me the show, not to forget that I was sitting in the boxes so at that précises moment him, being elevated, I had a perfect view of him and his corporal/facial expressions which where amazing. @LionOllivier
Daniel Radcliffe naked in Equus, because he proved he was much more than just Harry Potter. He literally “shed” his clothes and his image and left the little boy behind. @Siwckc
