Apparently, Radcliffe was caught on film walking a group of dogs around Bryant Park, and other lookie loos spotted him filming a scene along with Marisa Tomei ("Crazy, Stupid, Love").  Apatow's response to the rumors on Twitter (you can see it below) was to essentially wink slyly and move right along.  Radcliffe's role is likely a cameo (he's busy on Broadway starring in "The Cripple of Inishmaan") but it's still fun to see the way @JuddApatow engages with his fans.

"Trainwreck" stars Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Mike Birbiglia and Vanessa Bayer, and is due out next July.
