In the upcoming film Imperium, British-Jewish actor Daniel Radcliffe — best known for his role as Harry Potter in the movie series — plays an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a neo-Nazi group.

In the film’s trailer, released on Tuesday, Radcliffe is seen shaving his head and reading books about white supremacy, before joining the radical, right-wing terrorist group that the FBI is trying to take down. The trailer, in which swastikas and other Hitler-related images appear, gives a glimpse of Radcliffe’s character blending in to the ranks of the fascist gang.

The movie is based on the real-life experiences of 16-year FBI veteran Michael German, who co-wrote the the script with director Daniel Ragussis.
