FIRST LOOK: Daniel Radcliffe in 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying'

Amid all the crazy Spider-Man on Broadway news, there is something else to report that doesn't have to do with superhero's falling. has brought us the first glimpses of Daniel Radcliffe as 'J. Pierrepont Finch' in the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.  They learned that he spent over a year taking voice and dancing lessons to get ready for the role.

Here is your first look:

For those not familiar with the story of How to Succeed..., it's all about J.'s rise from window washer to executive in week.  But don't expect any Wall St. or Mad Men type of manipulation.  This is just a good old musical comedy as we take the journey with J.

This musical also helped launch the Broadway career of another young film actor in a 90's revival.  Take a look at Matthew Broderick in the same role during the show stopping number 'Brotherhood of Man'.

With this and 'The Book of Mormon' getting ready to officially open, I'm sure Broadway will be okay with out the web slinger.

What say you?
