A24 has contributed to the ongoing “Things and People Who Look Like Daniel Radcliffe” saga in a big way, as the distributor brought the 26-year old actor face-to-face with a creepy dummy bearing his likeness as they promoted their new movie Swiss Army Man.
The promotional “Manny About Town” tour began Monday in New York City, and saw the former Harry Potter star cruising through the streets atop a double-decker bus with his lifelike buddy in tow, peering over the edge, waving to onlookers, and engaging with a group of fans seated around them on the vehicle.

The tour is also set to hit Washington D.C., Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, and more cities in the coming weeks.
Swiss Army Man premiered in January at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. It tells the story of Hank, (Paul Dano) a man stranded on a seemingly deserted island who forms an intense friendship with a corpse, Manny (Radcliffe), that washes ashore and ultimately tags along on Hank’s quest to reunite with the world (and the love interest) he left behind. A press release calls the film a “celebration of all the wonders cinema has to offer… a cultural phenomenon in the making; a surreal and wholly original examination of human vulnerability and connection that must be experienced.”
Swiss Army Man opens June 24 in limited release, followed by a nationwide expansion on July 1. Check out more photos from Radcliffe’s New York City tour with Manny in the photos below.
