Daniel Radcliffe in 'Beginners'

Daniel Radcliffe adored indie band, Slow Club, so much after interviewing them for Time Out magazine that he agreed to star in their new music video for ‘Beginners’.

Slow Club, comprised of duo Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor, were shocked by Radcliffe’s knowledge of their music.

“After meeting him for the first time we were pretty blown away by how much he knew about our songs and when the time came to make a video, the director Lucy Needs had the script ready and thought it couldn't hurt to ask,” Watson told The Guardian.

In the music video, Radcliffe is seen wearing a red Hawaiian shirt, drunkenly roaming a bar gulping the remaining bits of alcohol of glasses left behind by other patrons.

The former ‘Harry Potter’ actor begins dancing, while mouthing the lyrics to the song, and attempts to stand on the bars’ table before falling down and eventually passing out.

Watson was extremely impressed by the actor’s professionalism on set.

“We were only on set for an hour or so as we had a show that night but I was surprised by just how focused he was…I've never been near a movie set but I guess being in such a concentrated state of mind is what it takes to get certain things on film.”

The role of a drunken bar patron conjured up some demons for Radcliffe, who admits to having issues with alcoholism and addiction in the past.

“I can honestly say I never drank at work on Harry Potter. I went into work still drunk, but I never drank at work. I can point to many scenes where I'm just gone. Dead behind the eyes,” Radcliffe told Heat magazine.

“I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem,” Radcliffe continued.

“People with problems like that are very adept at hiding it. It was bad. I don't want to go into details, but I drank a lot and it was daily – I mean nightly.”

Watch the video below. Radcliffe might not be going full frontal like Shia LaBeouf, but he’s definitely displaying his acting chops.

‘Beginners’ is taken from ‘Slow Club’s’ latest album entitled ‘Paradise’.
