The rumor that surfaced a little over a week ago about Dan Radcliffe playing a doctor in an upcoming UK miniseries has turned out to be true. Radcliffe will be starring opposite Mad Men’s Jon Hamm in “A Young Doctor’s Notebook,” a four part miniseries:

Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe have been confirmed as the stars of a new U.K. comedy drama miniseries based on a Russian novel in which they both play the same character.

The pair feature in “A Young Doctor’s Notebook,” a four-part skein inspired by a collection of short stories by Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov set during the Russian Revolution.

Hamm takes the role of the older doctor, who has a series of bleakly comic exchanges with his younger self, portrayed by Radcliffe.

Radcliffe added: “I have been an obsessive Bulgakov reader for a couple of years now so when the opportunity to become involved in this project came up, I could barely contain my excitement.

“The book is funny, grotesque and heartfelt in equal measure and I look forward to working with a great group of people to help bring it to life.”

Many thanks to Dana for the tip!

This holiday came to be because my teacher said Dan was ugly, and that Harry was a punk. Her least favorite color is orange, so everyone in the class wore orange in class to protest. (some for different reasons, but us because of what she said) So now it will be a known holiday when everyone aroudn the world gets together and pwns with HP and Dan Radcliffe. :) Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: This sounds Good!Avatar Imagekatelyner123 says: I am so proud of Dan!!!! :D :D Keep being epic!!!!!!!Avatar Imageathena lupen says: AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagehewy says: Well, Dan is certainly picking and choosing his roles for their diversity these days!
