Can you picture it? Daniel Radcliffe Might Share A Role With Jon Hamm In British Miniseries

On a normal day, Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe and Mad Men’s
Jon Hamm couldn’t possibly be considered to play the same character.
One’s British, the other is American, the age gap between the two is
huge, and besides both of the actor’s brown, foppish mops, they have
very little in common. However, throw in the fact Radcliffe may play the
young version of Hamm’s character and the whole scenario becomes a
whole lot more believe.
Radcliffe may make a foray into television, appearing in an upcoming
British miniseries with Hamm. The series will follow some Russian
doctors in the years following World War I. If the two are indeed signed
on for the project, the whole Russian factor will make the dichotomy
between the American and British accent thing moot, anyway (I’ve never
heard Hamm do a British accent, but to catch a sample of Radcliffe
attempting an American accent, check out his SNL preview
from a few months ago). It will be interesting to see the two try to
play the same character at very different stages in life and TV Blend
will keep you posted if this idea pans out.
British tabloid The Sun first reported the news, which might make the whole thing a little suspect; however New York Magazine
says the report makes sense, given what they have heard of the project.
I’m generally in for anything featuring the brightly smiled Hamm, so
add in Radcliffe and the project already has me sold.
