'Harry Potter' star Daniel Radcliffe chatted with "The Insider" following his opening night performance in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway Sunday, reminiscing about the simpler time in which the story is set.
"It's kind of fun to be playing someone who is so shamelessly ambitious," said Daniel, who plays the opportunistic J. Pierpont Finch in the stage production. "It's from a much more innocent time in the history of the U.S. and the world... It was a time when there was no shame in being this ambitious."
Daniel's Broadway debut was in Peter Shaffer's Equus, a play which famously called for the actor to be nude on stage for a portion of the story, and Daniel admitted that this production was a welcome change of pace, especially for the young fan base that might know him from the 'Harry Potter' movies.
"It's a great show and I think everyone can kind of enjoy it," Daniel said. "It's nice, as well, to be doing something that is suitable for everybody so that everyone can come and see it."

The sun broke through the rain clouds Sunday morning as Josh Duhamel and Fergie sprinted for a cause at the Youth Run for Japan in Santa Monica.
Inspired by the devastation faced by the Japanese people in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami, actor Josh once again partnered with the American Red Cross, following up with his fundraiser last year for Haiti. "When I saw some of those images come out of Japan, I'd never seen anything like it," he said compassionately.
It was a close call for Fergie and her band The Black Eyed Peas, who were in Japan to shoot a video a mere week before disaster struck. "Leaving there we had such a positive vibe and then this happened," she said. "We were all tripping out that we were just there in Japan. It was just a wonderful chance for us to give a love letter back to Japan."
Fergie graciously celebrated her birthday with the "gift of giving." A more traditional party took place Friday night in Las Vegas. What does she hope to accomplish in her 36th year? Dianna Agron would "love" to have the "Fergalicious" singer as a guest on "Glee."
Nicky Hilton really feels for the residents of Japan. "Japan is one of the most beautiful places we've ever visited," she asserted. Sister Paris Hilton explained they've been doing business with the country since they were teenagers and have employees and friends they're concerned about.
Despite the inclement weather, Josh was pleased with the turnout and hopeful that the effort could surpass last year's donations. T-shirt sales alone have yielded $90,000 thus far. If you're interested in supporting the relief efforts in Japan, Josh recommends you visit reliefrun.com.
Comedy Central and MTV Networks honored the funniest actors, directors, writers and stand-up comedians last night at the first annual Comedy Awards at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. Guest such as Jon Cryer and Chloë Moretz were in attendance and the many funny men and women met the event with appreciation and comedic undertones.
"It's very nice of Comedy Central to do this,” Jon Stewart said. "Not a lot of people throw a party for just comedians."
Will Ferrell gave his take on how to compare this night to other awards shows on the red carpet. "I think they’re happy with settling for the ACE Cable Awards of comedy," the funnyman quipped. "If they get that, they can build up to being the Oscars of comedy."
Also on hand was Tracy Morgan, who gave his take on comedy and its limits. "Really funny people don't have boundaries," the "30 Rock" star commented. "If you have boundaries, to me, you're not funny."
While on the subject of no boundaries, Stephen Colbert spoke on the notion of limits in regards to George Lopez’s assault on Kirstie Alley. "That's not nice, that's not nice at all," Colbert stated. "He shouldn't do that. She's a lady."

Kelly Osbourne, the new face of Madonna and daughter Lola's Material Girl line, opened up to TheInsider.com's Nicole Dabeau about George Lopez's war of words with Kirstie Alley.
Osbourne, who has gotten weight-related flack in the press in the past, and knows what Kirstie is going through having been a "Dancing with the Stars" contestant, told Nicole that although Kirstie has made a business of her weight (having starred in the TV series "Fat Actress" and having been a spokesperson for Jenny Craig) she still thought George's comment comparing Kirstie to a pig was below the belt.
Nicole caught up with Kelly at a Material Girl event at Macy's at the Beverly Center in Beverly Hills, and there was paparazzi pandemonium when an overzealous mob of photogs overwhelmed Kelly, who then fired back, "Chill Out!" Watch the video to see the snapping snafu unfold.

Jennifer Aniston is the star of the latest viral video attracting viewers around the internet.
The video is actually a new commercial for SmartWater in which Aniston works with a group of internet experts to craft the perfect viral video to promote SmartWater.
Not understanding what a viral video actually is, Aniston says, "I have to make a video apparently, that turns into a virus." Dancing babies, puppies, talking parrots, and double rainbows all make appearances in the commercial, referencing other viral hits from the past year.
In two weeks, the video has received over eight million hits.

Look at these clips from a few of yesterday’s late night performances from some of today’s top musicians:
• Tres Mountains, which features members from Pearl Jam, King’s X and The Fastbacks, performed their song “Holes in the Road” off of their debut album Three Mountains (out now) on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
So far the men have faired well on "Celebrity Apprentice," but this might come to an end next week when the guys get fed up with one of their teammates.
"Sometimes Gary [Busey] gets a little frazzled and gets all over the place, that can get distracting," said Lil John, who was voted Project Manager for this week's task of creating a telephone commercial. "People like that, you have to learn how to listen but not let them take you off of what you're doing."
During their commercial shoot for telecommunications company ACN, the cast struggled to keep Gary on task. Lil John seemed to have had enough when it was discovered that Gary was naked beneath his bathrobe after a brief wardrobe malfunction.
"What you see is what you get," said Gary. "But there's a lot of surprises in what you get when you take me."
Meanwhile, the ladies chose NeNe Leakes as Project Manager and utilized Oscar winner Marlee Matlin as the star in their advertisement.
"Marlee's an excellent producer, an amazing actress - as everyone knows - so she's really got it going on," said Star Jones. "I'm really proud of where we're going with this commercial."
Where the men's commercial took on comedic tones, the ladies used the "tried and true method" of using a sentimental story to entice viewers into trying the services advertised.
"Celebrity Apprentice" airs Sundays on NBC.
Prince William and Kate Middleton will be getting married in less than two months but are they ready for everything that comes with their royal "I do’s?"

This marriage is not only a big day for the couple but also for the future of the monarchy. The hope is that Prince William and Kate can do what Prince Charles and Princess Diana never could and that is work as a beautiful team.

With everyone on board it is safe to say that Prince William and Kate are preparing themselves not only for their wedding day but for the rest of their lives.
"William and Kate: Inside the Royal Wedding" airs on TLC at 10 pm.
Ralph Macchio set himself up as the man to beat on the season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday, but his high score doesn't seem to have boosted his confidence going forward.
"You start getting those second guess theories like, 'Maybe because it was so new, so fresh and I didn't know what was coming - that's why I wasn't as nervous as I thought I'd be,'" Ralph admitted during his dance rehearsal on Thursday. "Who knows? This Monday I might be a bag of jitters."
Ralph's debut performance made him number one on the show and his kids number one at school. Ralph divulged that his son told him "school wasn't even like school" on Tuesday, apparently due to congratulatory high-fives and pats on the back from classmates and teachers.
"We had a great night," said Ralph. "But it does put added pressure on and all I can do and all we can do is just pour in all the work and push ourselves as much as we can and just deliver the best performance we can in that minute and a half that you get and hope that it all comes together."
Ralph and his partner Karina Smirnoff have tried to maintain the mindset of an underdog while preparing for their next dance, the Jive, which Ralph admits is "kicking [his] butt."
"It is out of the gate at 1,000 miles an hour and it doesn't stop 'til it ends," Ralph said. "My goal this week is to nail all the steps because if you miss one you're off the train tracks."
See how Ralph and Karina can repeat the magic of their debut on an all-new episode of "Dancing with the Stars" Monday on ABC.
Hit rewind and take a ride back to this day in history 22 years ago -- March 25, 1989 -- when Tracey Gold filmed a special episode of "Growing Pains" about drunk driving.
Tracey explained that in the episode, her character Carol Seaver goes on a date with a guy who later gets arrested for drunk driving.
She said at the time, "I know kids who drink and stuff, I've been very fortunate though, not to be personally involved with it. But I hope never to be personally involved with it, and that's why I feel it's important to speak out on it now before it personally affects me."
Eerily, Gold would go on to be arrested and later plead guilty to driving under the influence after she crashed an SUV carrying her husband and three young sons in 2004.
