    I'm interested. It could go either way...they could make it fluff or really dig in and make something strong. but I have a feeling it'll be fluff. :/

    Have you read the book(s)? I'm very interested to hear what the magic system is like? Are the powers universal to all witches/wizards, or are they personalized?

    Syfy has summoned Jason Ralph and Sosie Bacon for the lead roles in The Magicians, its adaptation of the bestselling fantasy trilogy by Lev Grossman.

    Ralph (Looking, Blue Bloods) will star as Quentin Coldwater, a brilliant and withdrawn young man recruited as a student at the mysterious Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy in Upstate New York, where he discovers that the Narnia-like world from a series of children’s books he loved as a child is all too real and poses a danger to humanity.

    Bacon (The Closer) will play the intensely shy Alice, who’s an outcast among her fellow Brakebills students but emerges as the most brilliant practitioner of magic in her class.

    The two join the previously cast Stella Maeve as Julia, Hale Appleman as Elliot and Arjun Gupta as Penny.

    Produced by Universal Cable Productions, the pilot was written by John McNamara (Prime Suspect) and Sera Gamble (Supernatural); Michael London (Milk) is producing with Janice Williams (All Good Girls). Production is set to begin this month in New Orleans.

    Yeah, it does. The shot of the Beast was pretty cool to see and appropriately creepy.

    Am I crazy for that trailer giving me a Being Human vibe?

    I hope it's as good as Being Human. I need something to fill that hole.

    “The Vatican Tapes” actress Olivia Taylor Dudley will round out the central cast of “The Magicians,” Syfy’s adaptation of the bestselling fantasy trilogy by Lev Grossman.

    Buzzfeed reports she’ll play magical prodigy Alice, joining the previously cast Jason Ralph as Quentin, Stella Maeve as Julia, Hale Appleman as Eliot, Arjun Gupta as Penny and Summer Bishil as Margo.

    Premiering in 2016, “The Magicians” follows Quentin Coldwater, a brilliant and withdrawn young man recruited as a student at the mysterious Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy in Upstate New York, where he discovers that the Narnia-like world from a series of children’s books he loved as a child is all too real and poses a danger to humanity.

    Syfy also announced the addition of Rick Worthy as Dean Fogg, Anne Dudek as Professor Sunderland, Esme Bianco as Eliza and Jade Tailor as Kady. They’ll appear as recurring guest stars in the 13-episode first season.
