Entertainment Weekly has the first look at 'Houdini'

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly (Feb 21) contains the first official look at HISTORY's Houdini miniseries starring Adrien Brody. The magazine has a full page with two terrific photos (one that gives us our first look at Kristen Connolly's Bess), and also reveals that the 4-hour miniseries will debut in May. Fantastic!

By the way, I dashed out at 10pm to track this down after being alerted to this by Dean Carnegie and Jim Fitzsimmons on Facebook. I found it at a local newsstand where it had just arrived yesterday. The man at the stand noted that he had sold an unusual amount today. "There must be something special in it," he said.

UPDATE: Not sure if Entertainment Weekly got it wrong or HISTORY changed their plans, but it doesn't appear Houdini is going to air in May as reported. Maybe Fall?


  1. LOL! You beat me to it. I was going to run out in the morning to find it. Nicely done!

    1. Thank YOU for sharing Jim's pic. I lost it when I saw it! Supermarket didn't have it yet, btw. Thank goodness for my local newsstand. Not a lot of those left around here.

      Getting our first real look at this in a paper magazine. Old school.

  2. Not feeling Brody as Houdini.

    1. I'm feeling him more from this photo than what we've seen up to this point. Glad he's got some muscle.

      Kristen Connolly looks great.

  3. Is that really Adrian Brody dangling from that building? A stuntman? CGI? I can't believe the production would take a risk letting him hang upside down from a building.

    On a side note, The 1968 Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood film Where Eagles Dare required such heavy use of stuntmen that Eastwood dubbed the film "Where Stuntmen Dare."

    1. Yeah, that is hard to believe. But maybe it's safe.
