Hamm/Radcliffe casting news: too good to be true?

I try to restrain myself from announcing projects until they seem more-or-less a done deal, but when I see the words “Jon Hamm,” “Daniel Radcliffe” and “British miniseries” in one sentence . . . well, first I try not to swoon, and then obviously I need to pass it along. Vulture reports that it’s hearing buzz (reported first in The Sun) that Hamm and Radcliffe are considering roles in a four-part British miniseries about Russian doctors after World War I. Both would play the same character, in different time periods. My mind is racing . . . so, they’d both be playing Russian? Shouldn’t two guys playing the same character have at least a vague physical resemblance to each other? Isn’t Daniel Radcliffe about a foot shorter than Jon Hamm? (Well, OK, not a foot, but I’ve met Jon Hamm and the man is tall.) Does this just seem completely crazy? Then again, that’s exactly what I thought when I heard that Shirley MacLaine was in “Downton Abbey,” and that turned out to be true. We shall see.
And now I can’t stop thinking: who would play a 40-year-old Daniel Radcliffe? Or a 20-year-old Jon Hamm? What do you think?
