Trailer for ‘Danny and the Human Zoo’ Featuring Evanna Lynch + Photo of Phelps Twins
Posted by Megs

BBC has released the trailer for the television film, Danny and the Human Zoo, which will be released later this year. Evanna Lynch plays Bridget O’Riordan, the girlfriend of main character Danny Fearon.

Danny’s world is a series of complex minefields which he has to negotiate: his home life – which his ebullient mother rules with an iron fist in an iron glove; his love life – where the Irish girl he’s in lust with won’t give him the time of day until he wins his first competition; and finally the ups and downs of his emerging career.

When Danny wins a talent competition at his local club it’s not long until he’s working the comedy circuit. Audiences can’t get enough, applauding as he effortlessly morphs into Mohammed Ali, Tommy Cooper and Frank Spencer, and eventually he hits the big time on TV – an unheard-of achievement for a young black boy.

But an unscrupulous manager takes advantage of Danny and forces him to star in a show, the ‘Musical Minstrel Cavalcade’. Danny hits rock bottom. Having made his name by becoming other people, Danny has to save himself by finding out who he really is.

The film also stars James and Oliver Phelps as Mr. Carter and, you guessed it, Mr. Carter. A photo of the two in costume may be seen below:

Posted by Megs

Digital Spy reports this morning that Matthew Lewis has been cast in series 4 of Ripper Street. He will be playing a policeman of unknown name, but we will keep you updated as news develops.

“From our new studio set in Ireland, it has been a delight to watch this cast reunite and grow,” series creator Richard Warlow said. “As these new characters’ lives take shape on the page, it is a daily inspiration to know that they will be brought to life by the most magnificent troupe of actors Ripper Street has yet assembled.”

Series four will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Instant Video – with a broadcast date still TBC. The third series is currently airing on Friday nights at 9pm on BBC One. For fans who want to catch up on the series you can watch it via the links below:

A description of the first series is as follows:

Haunted by the failure to catch London’s most evil killer, Jack the Ripper, Inspector Edmund Reid now heads up the notorious H Division – the toughest police district in the East End. Charged with keeping order in the blood-stained streets of Whitechapel, Reid and his men find themselves fighting to uphold justice and the rule of law; but always in the background lurks the fear of the Ripper – is he back for another reign of terror? Rich episodic storylines meld with the intrigue of a criminal underworld festering on the hard streets of Victorian London, following the battle of the men whose job it is to bring the law to the lawless.

More casting news has been released today thanks to The Wrap (and SnitchSeeker for getting confirmation.) Jenn Murray has been cast as “a key role” in the film.  In the article they mention Ezra Miller as being cast in the film. It should be noted that Ezra has denied that he is involved, but multiple sources have confirmed him in the film.

Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol will co-star as sisters alongside Ezra Miller and Dan Fogler. Murray is expected to share scenes with Miller’s character, who’s a rival of sorts to Newt Scamander.
