After earlier this week renewing its first original scripted series 'Vikings' for a second season, coupled with 'The Bible's' major success, History has conjured up its next big miniseries to market. The History Channel has officially announced development on 'Houdini' (tentative title), an account of the world-famous magician Harry Houdini with Adrien Brody in the leading role. Will it prove as big a success as 'The Bible' or 'Hatfields & McCoys'? Preview History's next magic trick inside!
Adrien Brody may have an Oscar for Best Actor, but what he doesn't have is a type or a steady line of work. Hollywood doesn't seem to know what to do with him, though he's been great in things like 'The Pianist,' and 'The Brothers Bloom.' It looks like he's going to flex some muscles with his next role, as he's up for the bad guy in Albert Hughes's 'Motor City.'
