Biz Break: Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe Take a Bath Together

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | November 2, 2012 | Comments ()

Francis Lawrence, who is already directing the second Hunger Games film, will return to direct Mockingjay parts one and two. The three movies will come out in back-to-back-to-back years, so don't expect Lawrence to be taking on any new projects until 2016.

Meanwhile, Idris Elba begins filming this month on the third season of BBC's bleak, complex, and amazing Luther. There will be four more episodes of the series, though there's no word on whether Alice will return. Showrunner Neil Cross, however, has expressed interest in a feature-film version of "Luther" at the end of season three, as well as a mini-series based on the Alice character.

Over on the USA Network, they have recently announced the cancellations of both Sarah Shahi's "Fairly Legal" and Michael Ealy's "Common Law." No great loss in either respect, and it frees both actors to take on roles better suited to their talent and prettiness. Man, that Ealy: No one has more soulful eyes. Burn Notice will be returning for a seventh season.

In a surprise to no one, Mitt Romney has nailed down the Montgomery Burns endorsement.

Brendan Fraser had a new TNT show, "Legends," in which he'd play a CIA Agent, but Brendan Fraser now no longer has a TNT show, as he's left citing creative differences.

Meanwhile, AMC has renewed Hell on Wheels for a third season, but has not put that renewal on hold until they can find a new show runner after its existing one departed.

HBO has picked up eight episodes of a new series from Stephen Merchant, co-creator of the BBC's "The Office." He'll co-write "Hello Ladies" with former American "The Office" writer-producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. The series will also star Merchant as a "6 foot-7 Merchant as a gawky Englishman searching for the woman of his dreams in Los Angeles. Half as charming as he thinks he is -- and twice as desperate -- he's obsessed with infiltrating the glamorous world of beautiful people."

Finally, the image above comes from the dark comedy "A Young Doctor's Notebook," a four-part series set to air in Britain based on the short stories of Mikhail Bulgakov, in which Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm play the same character at different stages of life.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    When your series is only 4 episodes, what exactly constitutes a mini-series?

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    I miss Alice, but I don't know if I want to watch her without Luther. They play off of each other so well that I almost feel like one is incomplete without the other.

    In other news, I love Bulgakov, so could you please provide more details as to which channel is airing it? I'd google it, but I have to wash my hair.

  • That picture up there is very, very confusing to my loins and I do NOT like it.

    " Brendan Fraser now no longer has a TNT show, as he’s left citing creative differences."

    That would be:

    Brendan Fraser: "I will play all the characters with amazing makeup and my acting skills."

    TNT: "Other actors will play Brendan Fraser's character when he's not supposed to look like Brendan Fraser."

  • Oh my god...wait..what?! This is some new-fangled Slash, right?

  • True_Blue

    Which is it--Don Draper gets sucked into Harry Potter universe? Or Harry Potter somehow ends up in 1960's America?

  • Artemis

    I love Daniel Radcliffe, but it is not remotely believable that he would grow up to be Jon Hamm.

  • googergieger

    Must be one hell of a puberty that character went through.

  • Blake

    BOO USA BOOOOOO!!!! Fairly Legal was filmed in Vancouver, BC where I currently reside. So not only do we lose another TV production but Sarah Sashis' hotness as well.

    Awesome to hear we will be getting more Luther. Does that mean we get more Alice too?

    New Sherlock and Luther in 2013!

  • Hell on Wheels season 3 SPOILER! Every character who hasn't already been jailed or nearly lynched, will be jailed or nearly lynched, then bailed out or broke out by ambiguous friends. Bohannon will get jailed and rescued at least 3 times.

  • Also shot. And stabbed. Everyone, not just Bohannon. In other news, I am in denial about Lily and waiting for Season 3 to be proven right. Not spoiling more than that, for those who need to catch up.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Yes indeed. I don't usually let TV shows affect me too much, but I was rather devastated (and a little pissed-off) after watching the 2nd season finale.

  • I wondered about Fairly Legal when I saw that Sarah was going to have a stint on Chicago Fire (unfortunately). I really wish someone would offer her a project worthy of her talents...

  • John G.

    So, is Hamm going for an English accent or Radcliffe for an American one?

  • e jerry powell

    I vote for Swahili.

  • Gina

    I want them both to try a Russian accent, myself.

  • Sarah Shahi is a lot of pretty, and even poorly-conceived and -written shows don't cover up what appears to be a big old fun streak. Heck, that even showed through in 'Life', which if you haven't seen is worth it - one season, so not a big commitment, plus Damian Lewis for the ladies and lads.

  • littlelion

    ...there are actually two seasons. I say this not to be a pedantic dick but to inform you that there is more of this wonderful show waiting for you.

  • Thanks! And it's OK to be a pedantic dick. Sometimes we all want to live in the House of Pedantry. It's strangely satisfying, like having beer with french toast at breakfast.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I can't wait to see the Good Doctor Bulgakov inject the steroids that will turn him from Radcliffe to Hamm.

    Simpsons piece not clever. :(
