Here's another photo from HISTORY's upcoming Houdini miniseries starring Adrien Brody. This shot shows us Evan Jones as Houdini's real-life assistant, Jim Collins; gives us another look at Kristen Connolly's breathtaking Bess; and we get to see a nice period straitjacket. But there's a behind-the-scenes aspect to this photo that makes it something extra special...

The idea of having a minute of silence in memory of Houdini was proposed by technical advisor David Merlini and embraced by director Uli Edel. Interestingly, Houdini's actual death scene was shot just a few days later.
Houdini is directed by Uli Edel from a script by Nicholas Meyer. It airs in two parts on September 1 & 2 at 9pm ET/PT and 8pm/C on HISTORY.
Check back here tomorrow for another new photo from Houdini.
