We don't miss anything here at WILD ABOUT HARRY. Check out this TV spot for the new Mark Wahlberg movie, Contraband. Houdini gets a nice namecheck right up front. In fact, Wahlberg's nickname in the movie is "Houdini."
Here's a thought. Could Mark Wahlberg play Houdini himself? He certainly has the build for it, and he's starting to look more like Harry as he gets older. Might this be Hollywood's way of softening us up to this idea? Is this subliminal advertising on the part of Universal? Could they have a secret plan to slip Wahlberg into a straitjacket!? Or am I going all Brad Meltzer on us?
