Everyone loves magic, and the greatest magician of them all was Harry Houdini. The History Channel is tackling the tale of the legendary performer over the course of two nights. The tale begins today and ends tomorrow, with Adrien Brody taking on the lead role. The hope is to offer us a glimpse inside the life of the man whose name is still known the world over so long after his death. The cast also includes Kristen Connolly as Bess Houdini and Evan Jones as Houdini's assistant and friend.
