Harry Treadway is Victor Frankenstein on Showtime's


In Penny Dreadful, some of literature's most famously terrifying characters -- including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light -- have become embroiled in Victorian London. The series stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Eva Green (Casino Royale) Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights and License to Kill), Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl) and Danny Sapani (The Bill). The series is a frightening psychosexual thriller created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street. Of the eight episodes, the first two will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, who helmed The Orphanage and the acclaimed film, The Impossible starring Naomi Watts in her Oscar-nominated performance.

Penny Dreadful premieres May 11th on Showtime.

Hopefully this can fill the Showtime eerie void that was left by Dexter's series finale.
The first trailer has me interested.

Daniel Radcliffe plays Victor Frankenstein in Frankenstein and Harry Treadaway plays Victor Frankenstein in Penny Dreadful.

Think about it for a little bit and you'll get it.

Ray Donovan is where it's at.

@Dandy speaks the truth. Hannibal just keeps getting better. I had no idea they could do so much with the character. Love it.

I'm planning to get down with it.

He's going to be very disappointed when he only creates Aaron Eckhart.
