Michael Weston plays the legendary escape artist Harry Houdini in Fox Network’s HOUDINI & DOYLE, which has its first-season finale Monday at 9 PM. In reality, as in the show, Houdini was friends for a time with Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, played by Stephen Mangan. Also as in reality, the two clashed over their belief in the supernatural, with Doyle a believer and Houdini a skeptic. HOUDINI & DOYLE, created by David Titcher, does imagine that the two men, together with London police constable Adelaide Stratton (Rebecca Liddiard), investigating very uncommon crimes. Weston, a native New Yorker, […]Read On »

PREACHER: Ruth Negga on bringing Tulip to life – Interview

When we meet Ruth Negga’s character, Tulip O’Hare, in the first episode of PREACHER, she is ecstatically winning a fight to the death in the front seat of a car, biting off part of a man’s face in the process. Later, Tulip enlivens two young children’s otherwise dull afternoon by giving the kids an exciting arts and crafts lesson in how to make an improvised rocket launcher. Clearly, Tulip is not a standard TV heroine. Then again, AMC’s PREACHER, Sundays at 9 PM, is not a standard good and evil show. Tulip’s former and perhaps future lover Jesse Custer (Dominic […]Read On »

However, in Fox Network’s Monday-night mystery series HOUDINI & DOYLE, Mangan isn’t playing just any author – he’s portraying Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of one Sherlock Holmes. In 1901 England, Holmes […]Read On »
