Daniel Radcliffe is about to wow audiences as J. Pierrepont Finch in the Broadway production of 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,' and now the 'Harry Potter' star is opening up about his latest role in a brand new behind-the-scenes video.

The clip shows Daniel prepping for the production by taking promo photos and spending time in the recording studio. He talks about his character in the award-winning play, and explains how he's super psyched to be in the musical.
"I'm very excited," Daniel says. "It's weird, I feel like I should be a lot more scared than I am, but at the moment, I'm kind of quite relaxed. The detail is so brilliant on every account that I couldn't be in safer hands."

The musical first debuted on Broadway in 1961, and has since won seven Tony Awards, as well as a Pulitzer Prize. Now, the British actor is ready to show fans that he's got more magic up his sleeve.

"Finch is somebody that would never let his morality get in the way of his ambition," he says of his very non-Harry-like character. "He is driven, everything he does is morally completely reprehensible, but you support him. I think you excuse a lot more when it's being played by someone my age, becuase you go, 'Oh, he's young.' You forgive a lot more, I think."

Check out the full video, complete with a sneak peek at all the cool vintage wardrobe pieces, below. Previews of 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying' begin on February 26 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in New York City.
