Ack! Naked Harry Potter kid...

A girl I used to babysit, and I use the term loosely, is now a college kid studying theatre.

She's going to London for a week or so. I was talking to her mother the other day and her mom said she had been trying to convince my ex-babysitee to go see the kid who plays Harry Potter in Equus. He's naked, ex-babysittee's mother pointed out.

Now one of the reasons I like the Harry Potter kid is that he sort of looks like theCSO. But the idea of him naked in Equus still kind of freaks me out.

I never liked Equus anyway.

As a good ex-babysitter now with a law job, I knew my role. I sent ex-babysittee a myspace message asking if the money for a ticket to Equus were to appear if she would want to go and would have time.

But geez...

One of the blogs I read has had multiple posts about whether one could get into legal trouble for seeing an underage kid naked.

The story itself seems weird, I know almost nothing about Equus, but I applaud Radcliffe's courage.

I believe that we are way to uptight about nudity.

As far as the legal trouble, seems far fethced to me.

I was reading a little more about Equus when I say that Goran Višnjić (Luka from ER) played the role when he was 12!

And he got a standing ovation for his performance.

I saw a fantastic production of "Equus" out in the Berkshires this summer. It's one of my favorite plays. Kinda freaky, but I've also preached on it.
