Daniel Radcliffe recently made his Broadway musical debut in the revival of the 1962 show "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," which opened in New York on Sunday, March 27.

The 21-year-old "Harry Potter" actor, who famously stripped down to star in the play "Equus" in London and Broadway in the past few years, plays J. Pierrepont Finch, a window washer who uses the titular book to climb the ranks at the World Wide Wickets Company in New York City.

The musical is based on a satirical self-help book and stars film and television star John Larroquette as J.B. Biggley, the president of the firm, and theater actress Rose Hemingway as secretary Rosemary Pilkington.

Daniel Radcliffe is also set to star in the film "The Woman in Black," based on the book by Susan Hill.

Radcliffe rose to fame playing boy wizard Harry Potter in the films based on the books by J.K. Rowling. He can be seen next in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," which sees the final showdown between teen wizard Harry Potter and the evil wizard Voldemort. Part 1 was released on November 19 and the second part will hit theaters on July 15, 2011.
