    March 27, 2011: Daniel Radcliffe has one huge advantage over others who've played J. Pierrepont Finch, the ambitious young fellow atop the 1961 musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." Radcliffe is a fully established, wholly bankable, entirely charming international star at the age of 21. He doesn't have to play the role like a Broadway wiseguy; he can play him as a risk-taking, flying-by-the-seat-of-his-pants kid.
