According to the UK's The Sun, Daniel Radcliffe and Mad Men's Jon Hamm will star as doctors in an upcoming British mini-series. The four-part drama will be shown on Sky Arts.
The series will be set immediately after World War I and will feature Radcliffe as a young Russian doctor. Hamm will portray the same character in his later years and will also narrate the story. According to the report, the two actors will interact during some of the scenes.
Said a source close to the project, “This is a great role for Daniel and he’s pretty excited about the prospect of working with Jon. He’s a big Mad Men fan and feels he can learn a lot from Don. But Jon knows all about Daniel’s qualities, too, so he’ll also be doing some learning.”
The mini-series will feature some "dark humor" as the main character faces self-doubt about his competence as a physician.
Radcliffe was recently seen in the supernatural thriller, "The Woman In Black." The actor rose to international fame starring in "Harry Potter," the highest grossing film series of all time. He also appeared on the Broadway stage in EQUUS and starred in the current Broadway revival of HOW TO SUCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING.
