Daniel Radcliffe to play young Jon Hamm in drama

Thursday May 3, 2012

Daniel Radcliffe has signed up to play a doctor in a new TV drama.

The Woman In Black and Harry Potter actor will star alongside Mad Men's Jon Hamm in a four-part series about Russian doctors after the First World War, The Sun reports.

Both actors will play the same character in the Sky Arts drama, with Daniel playing the doctor in his younger years.

A source told The Sun: "This is a great role for Daniel and he's pretty excited about the prospect of working with Jon."

US star Jon - who plays Mad Men advertising executive Don Draper - will also narrate the story.

Daniel's next film is set to be Kill Your Darlings, directed by John Krokidas.
