Casting: Daniel Radcliffe Tangles with Yakuza, 'Transformers 4' Lands Lead (Human) Villain

Daniel Radcliffe's post-Harry Potter career has held some interesting film choices. He starred in last year's horror flick The Woman in Black and will be back in theaters later this year with the indie biopic drama Kill Your Darlings. Radcliffe recently completed filming on the dramedy The F Word as well as the fantasy-horror movie Horns and for his next performance, the actor is returning the biopic genre.

Radcliffe has signed on to star in the movie adaptation of American reporter Jake Adelstein's Tokyo Vice. The book chronicles how Adelstein became entangled with the yakuza and specifically yakuza boss Tadamasa Goto, because of his articles he wrote for a Japanese newspaper. The film is slated to being production early next year.

Are you encouraged by the range of genres Radcliffe is working in? What other kind of movies would you like to see him tackle? Action movie? Comedies?

Looks like Kelsey Grammar is set to jump back into the blockbuster movie world. Deadline reports the actor has landed the lead human villain role in Transformers 4. Grammar will play Harold Attinger, a "couter-intelligence guy." Does that mean he's against smart people? Just kidding.

Grammar seems like a great fit in a villain role. He's been cutting a mean streak as a ruthless politician on his Golden Globe-winning drama Boss.

The film is set to begin production in July with Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci and newcomers Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz co-starring.

Transformers 4 is slated for a June 27 release.
