"Harry Potter" street date set

The final installment of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, titled "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," will hit bookstore shelves on July 21, according to the writer's Web site.

Meanwhile, muggle Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Potter in the film series, is apparently going for a little street cred -- as an actor -- by stripping down for his role in the London revival of the play "Equus." He poses nude in ads for the show, creating quite a stir in jolly ol' England. (I thought the "strip for an acting award" trick only worked for women, though. Who knows?)

The new book's title was revealed on Rowling's
Web site through a game of hangman.

What's really scary? A 10-year-old kid who read the first Harry Potter book on its release would now be a senior in college.
