At first blush, Harry Potter and Don Draper wouldn’t seem to have much in common, but according to a new Brit miniseries, the former grows up to become the latter. Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm signed on several months back to star in the drama-comedy A Young Doctor’s Notebook, as younger and older versions of the same character.
A batch of set photos circulated a few weeks back, showing the actors trying their hardest (and mostly failing IMO) to look like the same person, and now the first trailer has hit the web. Hit the jump to see if they fare any better on video. At the very least, you’ll get to enjoy the novelty of seeing these two engage in some steamy loofah action.

It’s fun watching Daniel Radcliffe try out strange roles in the wake of Harry Potter’s finale. His latest is Horns, from director Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes), based on the book by Joe Hill. Radcliffe’s character is Ignatiaus “Ig” Perrish, accused of the rape and murder of his girlfriend.
That’s a bad situation to be in, and from there things get weird. Ig wakes up one morning with horns growing from his forehead, and soon leans that they’re part of a new ability: Ig can force people to do things, and plans to use that power to uncover the real killer of his love. Read More »

As much time and money and effort as Hollywood pours into big-budget franchises, only a handful manage to make a real lasting impression on moviegoers. But the best of them live on long after the last installment has hit theaters, and one that falls into that category is Warner Bros.’ Harry Potter series.
From 2001 to 2011, the studio released eight films based on J.K. Rowling‘s books. Collectively, they’re are one of the most successful cinematic series of time by any standard — critically, commercially, culturally. Even now, after all the cast and crew have moved onto other projects, fans still harbor a deep affection for the Boy Who Lived.
In tribute to the beloved fantasy saga, Kees Van Dijkhuizen Jr. has edited together a gorgeous thirteen-minute retrospective titled “Mischief Managed.” Hit the jump to watch his video, and be warned that you may get a lump in your throat once John Williams‘ iconic theme kicks in.

For various reasons, we figured The Woman in Black was a one-and-done affair for Daniel Radcliffe. After spending almost the entirety of his film career in one franchise, who would expect him to jump right into another? And so when the sequel, The Woman in Black: Angels of Death was announced, it was no surprise to hear it would take place many years after the events of the first film, and therefore probably not involve Radcliffe.
But now Hammer Films CEO Simon Oakes says that there will hopefully be more than one sequel to the original film, and that Radcliffe could make an appearance of some sort in Angels of Death. Spoilers for the original film follow. Read More »
