Josh Hartnett is a big-haired cowboy on the set of Sam Mendes' Penny Dreadful

Oct. 4, 2013by: Niki Stephens

I'll be honest, the first thing that drew my attention to this story was this bizarre thumbnail of Josh Harnett. At a glance, he looked like he was cross-dressing, then when I clicked through to the actual article things got weird. Then as I'm scrolling through the pictures I see this teaser for an upcoming Showtime series called PENNY DREADFUL. Nice title, right?

If a teaser is involved, I try to dissect what I see before going straight to a synopsis (one was not included). So after two minutes of pondering, I go in search of a plot, here's what I found:

"Some of literature's most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama."

Hartnett plays Ethan Chandler, "a charming, brash, daring man of action who is unafraid of violence and more complicated than he likes to admit." That is the wig of a man who is "brash, daring and unafraid of violence". The cast also includes Eva Green, Billie Piper (Rose Tyler from DOCTOR WHO), Reeve Carney, Timothy Dalton, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway, and Helen McCrory. THE ORPHANAGE'S Juan Antonio Bayona will direct the first two episodes based on scripts from John Logan (SKYFALL). Sam Mendes serves as executive producer.

Check out the pics and teaser below. PENNY DREADFUL will premiere on Showtime in 2014.

Wow

That wig is truly horrible, it looks like a fat squirrel died on his head and he curled it's fur. On another note, I thought I had heard this was supposed to be an anthology type show, like Tales from the Crypt, is that still the case? I hope so!

I 've been waiting to hear more about this show, as it intrigued me when I first heard about it a few months ago. What in the world is Josh Hartnett wearing? LOL! I'm looking forward to a trailer.

What happened to him? Apparently this lol. I completely forgot about him. The last movie I saw w/ him was either 30 Days of Night or The Black Dahlia

A man walks down the street in that wig, people know he's not afraid of anything.
