Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart Join 'X-Men: Days of Future Past!'

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will officially be reprising their roles as Professor X and Magneto in Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' with Singer himself anncoing the news himself on twitter:
Thrilled to announce @ianmckellen118 & @sirpatstew are joining the cast of #XMEN #DaysOfFuturePast #magneto #professorX More to come...

— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) November 27, 2012
Speaking with the The Huffington Post, Ian McKellen had this to say about playing the master of magnatism once again:
Bryan Singer announced that you're playing Magneto again. Is that something you've been wanting to do? This will be your fourth movie with Bryan Singer, did that help persuade you?

What a gas! I mean, Patrick Stewart and I have been have just been playing "Waiting for Godot" throughout England and in the West End of London. So, we've stayed in touch. We can't believe it [laughs]. I thought these were Fassbender and McAvoy's parts, but -- no, no -- we're back. We'll give them a run for their money. I mean, I haven't read the script, so I don't know how much we've got to do. But, to be back in that world, and for Bryan to be doing it -- with all the success he's had in the meantime -- it's wonderful. Wonderful.

What did you think of Michael Fassbender as Magneto in "X-Men: First Class"?

Yeah! I thought he was exactly that: first class. Excellent.

You never thought, Hey, I've got my eye on you. That's my part.

[Laughs] No. No. I thought he was better than me. But, we weren't quite playing the same character because he was so much younger than me. And the scope of Magneto, one day a Jewish actor will play it. Clearly, he's Jewish. We first meet him in at Auschwitz and there's scope for all sorts of people to pay Magneto. But, I was just the lucky guy who got to play him first.

 On this check this... is Alan Moore & Mitch Jenkins short films 'Act Of Faith. and 'Jimmy's End'

'Act Of Faith: It’s raining in Northampton and Faith Harrington has Friday evening ahead of her, her favourite outfit and her favourite face, her top tunes shimmering on the CD player: “When the lamp burns low on the bureau, even though I’m far from you…”

In a curtain-raiser prelude to their forthcoming short film Jimmy’s End, Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins, with Siobhan Hewlett, introduce us to a world of unfamiliar atmospheres, precarious entertainments, and insidious detail. Act of Faith unveils an isolated corner of the modern night, where carrion crows become the only comforters and it’s a quarter to eternity…

'Jimmy's End': We've all been there: in the lapses after midnight, stumbling down unfamiliar gutters after one too many for the road and looking for inviting lights before they call last orders. James is trying to lose himself, but in a fractured men's room mirror finds the eyes that have been waiting for him.

Following from the unnerving prelude Act of Faith, Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins unveil a phantasmagoric English dreamtime made of goosefleshed pin-up girls, burned out comedians and faulty lights, with judgement just behind the tinsel

Jimmy's End pulls back the purple drapes upon an intricate new planet of desire and mystery. We've all been there.

'A Young Doctor's Notebook' Trailer

Trailer for 'A Young Doctor's Notebook' starring Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe, part of Sky Arts' Playhouse Presents drama series.

'A Young Doctor’s' Notebook is a four-part comedy drama based on a collection of short stories by the celebrated Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov. The drama recounts Bulgakov’s semi-autobiographical experiences as a young doctor working in the small village of Muryovo at the dawn of the Russian Revolution in 1917.

Recounting from his notebooks, the Doctor considers his life and career as he tries to treat the patients of a village that is struggling to enter the modern age.   Dealing not only with the superstitious and poorly educated patients but with his own inner demons, the doctor reveals doubts about his own competence and struggles with the immense burden of medical responsibility.

Jon Hamm takes on the role of the older doctor, who has a series of bleakly comic exchanges with his younger self, played by Daniel Radcliffe. Jon Hamm said:
 “I am thrilled to get the opportunity to work on such rich source material with such fantastically talented people whose work I greatly respect, and to continue the relationship with Sky who have taken such good care of Mad Men since acquiring it. I have been watching "Bridget Jones's Diary" on infinite loop, and I think I've finally got this accent thing sorted...” 
 Daniel Radcliffe added:
"I have been an obsessive Bulgakov reader for a couple of years now so when the opportunity to become involved in this project came up, I could barely contain my excitement. The book is funny, grotesque and heartfelt in equal measure and I look forward to working with a great group of people to help bring it to life". 
The series is set to debut on Sky Arts 1’s Play House Presents on December 6.
