Daniel Radcliffe — star of the recent London revival of Equus — told MTV News what has been expected: that the "Harry Potter" star and his West End castmate, Richard Griffiths, will headline the work on Broadway.

"In all probability, if everything goes according to plan, it would definitely be me and Richard Griffiths and how many other cast members the unions will allow," Radclife told the network. He expects the Broadway production will begin performances "late next year." "I'm excited," he added, "terrified, but excited."

Producers announced April 20 that the hit London show — which played its final performance at London's Gielgud Theatre June 9 — would head to Broadway in spring 2008, followed by an Australian production.

No casting or official dates for the New York run were announced, but reports previously noted Radcliffe and Griffiths agreed to a May or June 2008 transfer.

Thea Sharrock directed the new revival of Peter Shaffer's disturbing classic, which opened in London's West End Feb. 27 following previews from Feb. 16.

The London cast also included Jenny Agutter (best known for her appearance in the 1970 film version of The Railway Children) and Will Kemp (star of Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake).
