Academy Award winner Adrien Brody stars as the legendary magician Harry Houdini.
Long before David Blaine and David Copperfield, there was one magician that brought magic to new heights. His name was Harry Houdini and this September, we will see his legend come to life in a special two-part series on History.
Adrien Brody tackles the role of this versatile magician who at one time was considered the world’s greatest performer. But Houdini will tell a tale that will not entirely focus on the master escapist but rather his life as Erich Weiss, an immigrant from Eastern Europe and how he ascended to new heights as the great Harry Houdini.
The drama will chronicle his life through his stunts, his visions, and his mastery of illusion.
