It felt as though there wasn't a single topic left out when news anchor Katie Couric interviewed Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) recently for CBS News. The two talked about Radcliffe's latest role in the Broadway musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," as well as his upcoming film "The Woman in Black" and the final "Harry Potter." Other topics of conversation included his relationship with J.K. Rowling, his involvement with The Trevor Project, and his love of reading.

Watch the extended, 45 minute long interview here.

Radcliffe will be making several television appearances in the next couple of days beginning with NBC's Today Show on Tuesday, March 15th. He is expected to perform a number from "How to Succeed..." during the program which airs between 7 and 11 a.m. Additionally, Radcliffe will be on Live! with Regis and Kelly on Thursday, March 17th.

"How to Succeed..." is now playing. More information can be found on the production's official website.

Dan is a good actor, and talented in many ways. If I could, I would go to NY right now to see the show.

I wondered if Katie understood what Dan meant when he said some people could “express themselves epigrammatically, brilliantly!” That’s far too multisyllabic a word for American audiences… and broadcasters…. LOL. (I am American, don’t get on me.) It was a great interview —w hat a fine man Dan is turning out to be!

Dan is just plain awesome. He is a wonderful actor and has the most charming personality. Let’s hope he will do better in the future with many of these roles.

I am so proud of Dan. He is just wonderful, and I, too, wish that I could see him in How to Succeed. I am 60 and have seen him grow and mature and I see how he is very brave to try many things. He is quite exceptional, and I think, one day, he will win an Oscar. Love Daniel a lot.

Whooo, way to go Daniel. I think he’s on a great track with his career, even though he had a gigantic gig (Harry Potter) he didn’t rest and just slip into the shadows and become history. He’s actually doing something! And it’s great to see him hired ‘cause some people would never hire actors who are linked to a specific role too much. I can see how he’s trying to wash off the Harry Potter theme with doing things like Equs (from what I’ve seen a little bit disturbing, but meaningful and a though role to play), no this (wished I could see it!!!) GOOD JOB DANIEL!

When I scored his autograph after the play with my 12 year old son he was joking around about the Slytherin wool hat my son was wearing and said he forgives him for it…he personalized his playbill and was really kind…I let him know he is an excellent role model….Dan is an incredibly nice and genuine person. And thanks Leaky for the updates! Great Job!!
