Daniel Radcliffe is slowly, but surely getting folks to deviate their perspective of him as the boy wizard who saved Hogwarts. The 26-year-old actor played the role of a tech villain in Now You See Me 2a flatulent corpse in Swiss Army Man and now, an undercover skinhead in the upcoming thriller, Imperium. The film, which is based on a true story, shows Radcliffe as an undercover FBI agent who must seek out and expose the surreptitious schemes of a radical right-wing terrorist organization.

The real-life agent, Michael German spent more than 10 years of his life working for the FBI—frequenting undercover missions in the white supremacist militias and even managed to disrupt a vicious attack from happening against an African American church. German is said to have worked with the film’s director, Daniel Ragussis, to bring a sense of realism to the film by imbuing his actual experiences.

All in all, the movie will surely be as thought-provoking as it is action-packed. Imperium is slated to hit theaters on August 19, check out the trailer above.
