Last night Tom Interval and I had the extreme pleasure of hosting Kristen Connolly and Danny Binstock at The Magic Castle in Hollywood. Kristen will be playing Bess Houdini the upcoming Houdini miniseries co-starring Adrien Brody. We had a wonderful evening talking about Harry and Bess and also enjoyed some excellent magic. I won't reveal what I may have learned about the production itself (except to say that it sounds like the Houdini movie of my dreams), but I will say that it was clear to both Tom and I that Kristen is ideally cast and is going to make a sensational Bess.
Thanks to Trish Alaskey, Lisa Cousins, and all the staff of the Magic Castle for giving Kristen and Danny the VIP treatment.
