Fox’s Frankenstein Eyes Two Actors For Lead Role
Daniel Radcliffe is about to meet his master.
The Harry Potter actor has long been attached to director Paul McGuigan’s planned Frankenstein movie at Fox, playing the role of hunchbacked assistant Igor. Now, according to Deadline, the search for who will play Doctor Victor Von Frankenstein is under way, and down to two names: Jack Huston and Toby Kebbell.
Huston is perhaps best known as the half-faced sharp-shooter Richard Harrow on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. He might seem like a frontrunner for the Frankenstein lead, having already worked with Radcliffe on the indie Kill Your Darlings.
Kebbell, meanwhile, has had roles in major films such as War Horse and Wrath of the Titans, and was most recently seen in the Britt Marling-led The East. He has an undisclosed role to play in the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes as well.
