The Illusionist starring Edward Norton, Jessica Biel and Paul Giamatti is one of my favorite movies so when I heard that it would be getting adapted into a television series for The CW I was equal parts excited and nervous. The film is about a young illusionist played by Edward Norton and his quest to run away with the love of his life who has been promised to an evil man, all the while being investigated by the police chief who wants to figure out how he pulls off his illusions.

These Hogwarts house lounge pants allow you to be comfy while you're hanging around the common room in your home. There's one for each house - Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, Slytherin, or Hufflepuff and the logo and house name are printed on a charcoal grey fleece. They're held up by a drawstring waist and each pair has two side pockets. We wonder if a wand could fit in there. The pants are $24.99 each and can be purchased from ThinkGeek.
