Harry Potter is about to set a new record -- although this one has little to do with box office numbers. Actor Daniel Radcliffe (of Harry Potter fame) is soon to become the youngest non-royal in British history to have a solo portrait hanging in the National Portrait Gallery. Radcliffe apparently sat for the portrait -- by artist Stuart Pearson Wright -- two years ago, during a break from filming one of the Potter flicks. Radcliffe says he loves the portrait, which will join 8 other similar images of actors (including Parminder Nagra, Jeremy Irons, and Alan Rickman) in a small exhibit in the Gallery.

Now I'm not really a patron of the arts, so my opinions on this issue are probably entirely invalid; but can anyone seriously tell me they wouldn't want a portrait of Alan Rickman?
