- Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe are reteaming for a second series of the British dramedy, Young Doctor’s Notebook. In the darkly comic show, Jon Hamm plays a doctor in the Russian Revolution who recounts his experiences as a young man as played in flashbacks by Radcliffe. [Deadline]
- Speaking of younger and older alter egos, Sir Ian McKellan wouldn’t stop flirting with Michael Fassbender at the X-Men: Days of Future Past Comic-Con panel. The elder gay thespian kept making allusions to marriage and shooting saucy glances at the roguish Irish actor’s way. [Vulture]

While director James Gunn’s favorite character might be Rocket Raccoon (who is an actual talking raccoon), the leader of the pack is Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord.
