HISTORY CHANNEL'S 'HOUDINI' HISTORICAL MINI SERIES TRAILER AND PHOTOS WITH ADRIEN BRODY! NEW POSTER FOR ABC'S 'SELFIE' SITCOM WITH KAREN GILLAN AND JOHN CHO!

ADRIEN BRODY IS HOUDINI
IN HISTORY CHANNEL'S NEW HISTORICAL MINI TV SERIES
It's a slow beginning of the week, so all I have for you are some TV news, starting with the first trailer for History Channel's two episode mini series HOUDINI in which Oscar winner Adrien Brody  plays the famous magician! To premiere September 1st it follows the epic tales of Harry Houdini as he emerges as America’s first bonafide world-renowned superstar. From humble beginnings at circus sideshows to sold-out concert halls, Eastern European immigrant Erich Weiss rose to become a household name across the globe–Houdini. Academy Award winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) stars as The Great Harry Houdini as he finds fame, engages in espionage, battles spiritualists and encounters the greatest names of the era, from U.S. presidents to Arthur Conan Doyle and Rasputin. A thrilling ride throughout Harry’s psyche, HOUDINI delves deep behind the curtain into his life through his stunts, his visions and his mastery of illusion. Joining Brody is Kristen Connolly as Bess Houdini, the love of Harry’s life and right hand when it came to some of his most amazing feats, and Evan Jones as Jim Collins, Harry’s assistant and confidant.

 
NEW 'SELFIE' POSTER WITH
KAREN GILLAN AND JOHN CHO
You can also check out a new poster for ABC's new sitcom SELFIE which should arrive to the small screens September 30th starring GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY's Karen Gillan as  Eliza Dooley who has 263,000 followers who hang on to her every post, tweet and selfie. But one lonely day she has a revelation: being friended is not the same as having actual friends. She asks marketing guru Henry (STAR TREK's John Cho) to 'rebrand' her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect.

  2. I'm instantly sold on Houdini with Brody in the lead.It looks like he's put on a good bit of muscle for the part as Houdini was built like a little tank.

    You did the mirror effect in the first pic? They should use that as a poster.

    1. I did, dear :) And the banner above in the slideshow too :)
      Brody has had those muscles for a long time now, dear, but people tend not to notice it since he looks skinny in most of the films

    2. I hadn't noticed his muscles before. Ya, he does look very skinny. He's tall and his bone structure is so vivid it adds to that look.

    3. if you do Google image search with his name and HOLLYWOOD SPY you will get tones of his naked pics :)

    4. PS he's not tall at all, you remember that I saw him in person and he is quite tiny and short

  3. Great Harry Houdini... Heck yes, though that is what I might look like if I were in Chains. I think Selfie is going to loose, once the fad of saying Selfie gets gone so will the the show.... though I like the red head...

    1. Than you should wear chains instead of regular outfits LOL
      I'm keeping fingers crossed for SELFIE, it seems fun and unusual, and I think there might be audience for that sitcom

  4. Houdini looks good! It'll be interesting to see Brody in this roll. He was awesome in The Pianist. It's hard to imagine him playing something so different.

    1. I think that he could be good on TV since Hollywood doesn't see him as a lead man

  8. Can't imagine anyone other than Adrien Brody to take on Houdini. He's a class act.

  15. Houdini should be awesome. There is just a shadow of mystery and magic that surrounds the mere name Houdini.
