Daniel Radcliffe may not be at Hogwarts anymore, but he’s still palling around with creepy creatures.

The actor, who reminded folks he’s also a Broadway song-and-dance man at the Oscars this week, is in final talks to star as Igor, the hunchbacked lab assistant,  in the upcoming Frankenstein from 20th Century Fox, EW has confirmed. (Deadline originally reported the news.)
