Cousin Matthew Is Becoming An Action Hero! Dan Stevens In Talks To Star In New Liam Neeson Film

Downton Abbey's Cousin Matthew is about to swap high society for the gritty not to mention lawless streets of New Yawk York. Actor Dan Stevens who seems perfectly at home sipping champagne on the lawn is reportedly in talks to co-star with Liam Neeson in the new Scott Frank flick A Walk Among The Tombstones.

It's still unclear what role the 30-year-old, who can currently be seen treading the boards opposite Jessica Chastain in the broadway show The Heiress, will play in the upcoming action blockbuster which sees Liam play a ruthless private investigator.

The pretty much polar opposite of Downton, Tombstones follows Neeson's journey as he attempts to find the kidnapped wife of a drug dealer. True to any Liam Neeson film there's a lot of bloodshed... Standard.

Anyway, Cousin Matthew is more our cuppa tea and we're a little on edge about the prospect of a Matthew-less fourth season. If you can't wait for the series four make sure you read up on all the goss before hand - we're in for a cracker!
