‘Luck’ Leads ‘Doctor Who’ Star Michael Gambon to HBO
When it comes to luck, Michael Gambon might know a thing or two about it. The British-bred thespian is best known for his portrayal of Albus Dumbledore in the last five Harry Potter films. This Christmas, he’ll appear in the Doctor Who holiday special, Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol. And he’s also landed his first U.S. television series with HBO’s Luck. Talk about having some fantastic luck!
Deadline reports that the 70-year-old Gambon will join Dustin Hoffman in the upcoming drama showcasing the ins and outs of horse racing. Gambon’s recurring role is said to be a great rival to Hoffman’s character of Ace Bernstein. Luck, which is currently in production, also stars Canadian actor Patrick J. Adams (Cold Case, NCIS) and Acadeny Award-nominated actress Joan Allen (Nixon, The Notebook).
