Actor Jon Hamm revealed to GQ that he himself chose Daniel Radcliffe to play the titular doctor in ITV's upcoming production of A Young Doctor's Handbook, in which Hamm will be playing the older version of Radcliffe's character.

"It was my idea!" Hamm [said]. "I'm a massive fan of Daniel. He's a wonderful actor and, now getting to know him a little bit, he's a great guy. I knew he wasn't willing to just say, 'OK, I'm Harry Potter and that's the end of that' - he wants to stretch and do different things. I thought he might be open to it - so we asked and he said yes. It's an interesting project. Hopefully I won't embarrass myself..."
