The 'Harry Potter' actor will reportedly play a younger version of the 'Mad Men' actor's character in the drama about Russian doctors.
Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm are allegedly set to work together for a British TV miniseries. The Arthur Kipps of "The Woman in Black" and the Don Draper of "Mad Men" will star alongside each other on the show which revolves around Russian doctors in post-World War I era, so The Sun reported before it's confirmed by Vulture.
According to the British news outlet, Hamm will portray one of the doctors with 22-year-old Radcliffe playing the same character in his younger years. The show will reportedly be injected with dark humor as "the doctor attempts to overcome self-doubts about his competence."
"This is a great role for Daniel and he's pretty excited about the prospect of working with Jon," a source said of the possible collaboration. "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."
Gaining fame for portraying wizard boy Harry Potter in the film series, Radcliffe took a lead role on Broadway musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" and recently wrapped production on upcoming thriller "Kill Your Darlings". He also made his debut as "Saturday Night Live" host in January this year.
As for Hamm, he is still starring on "Mad Men" which returned for its fifth season in March after a long delay. He made his latest big screen appearance in "Friends with Kids", which was directed by his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt.
