daniel radcliffe ew cover Daniel Radcliffe is EW's Entertainer of the YearDaniel Radcliffe, who in 2011 delighted audiences with his final performance as Harry Potter, is Entertainment Weekly’s entertainer of the year. The magazine made the announcement on Wednesday (Dec. 7) and released a copy of the magazine cover, which will hit newsstands Friday.

Radcliffe also hit Broadway this year to star in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” and made Forbes’ 2011 list of bankable box-office stars. He’ll next appear in the thriller “The Woman in Black.”

Also on EW’s list: Adele, Hugh Jackman, the cast of “Bridesmaids,” “Game of Thrones” and “South Park” (and “Book of Mormon”) creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

In the issue, some of EW’s previous entertainers of the year toast the 2011 honorees.

“I went and saw ‘The Book of Mormon’ on Broadway, and was so offended I peed my pants twice,” Sandra Bullock writes about Stone and Parker. “Maybe three times. I lost count I was so offended.”
