Pottermore.com has released the first images from the Harry Potter update Harry Potter And The Cursed Child with Jamie Parker as Harry, Poppy Miller as his wife, Ginny, and Sam Clemmett as Harry’s troubled son Albus.
The previews of both Parts 1 and 2 of the West End play written by Jack Thorne are coming next week, but these portraits give a right peek at the characters, and their resemblance to the actors who played them in the Harry Potter film series is uncanny. J.K. Rowling herself said about Parker: “He simply is Harry now. There’s a kind of relief in watching him, he gets it so right.” High praise from the person who knows both Harry and his universe better than anyone!

Dwayne Johnson to Play “the World’s First Superhero,” Doc Savage

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is practically a superhero himself. And now he’s going to play one onscreen.
Johnson posted on Instagram that he was taking on the role of the iconic Doc Savage, calling him “the world’s first superhero.” The film, to be written and directed by Shane Black, who’s enjoying a critical renaissance with the release of his summer comedy The Nice Guys, will be based on the 1930s and ’40s pulp fiction adventurer who predates Superman (and was actually an inspiration for the Man of Steel).
The Wrap says of the intrepid hero, “The MacGyver of his time, Savage was a physician, surgeon, scientist, adventurer, inventor, explorer, researcher and musician, known for his superhuman abilities in smarts and strength. The virtual Swiss Army knife of comic-book heroes, Savage has a photographic memory, is a master of disguise, and can imitate voices — along with having masterful martial arts skills. »
