"Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe, who strips for his new role in London's West End revival of "Equus," is igniting a bit of a media firestorm with those racy promotional photos for the production.

The award-winning drama tells the story of a stable hand who has an erotic fixation with horses. In one photo, Radcliffe, 17, gets naked with a white horse; in another, the suddenly grown-up star is pictured with a nude actress from the play.

"Equus" opens at the Gielgud Theater on Feb. 27.

"It's a really challenging play, and if I can pull it off--we don't know if I can yet--I hope people will stop and think, `Maybe he can do something other than Harry,"' Radcliffe tells Newsweek.
