Matthew Crawley Coming Along on Liam Neeson's Next Kidnapping-Based Murder Spree
Good news for Dan Stevens fans hoping to see him to stretch into more Hollywood films from Downton Abbey. Also good news for Liam Neeson fans hoping to see him not stretch at all, and just keep murdering kidnappers in various locales.
After failing to get his big American break with Vamps, Stevens will be giving it another shot with Marley & Me writer Scott Frank's A Walk Among the Tombstones, Variety reports. Last May, Liam Neeson signed on to star in the film, playing an ex-New York cop and ex-drunk hired to find the kidnapped wife of a drug dealer, as Neeson already has that particular set of skills, a handgun, and his own cell phone to shout into. Stevens' role is not yet known, but he'll probably die. Cause: Liam Neeson.
