Dan Stevens Joins John Travolta in CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES

Variety reports that 'Downton Abbey' alum Dan Stevens has signed on to star with John Travolta in Jackie Earle Haley's CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES. The film will center on "four friends who make a risky investment together that puts them in trouble with the mob."

Stevens will soon be seen on the big screen in the upcoming "A Walk Among Tombstones," "The Cobbler," and the next installment in "The Night at the Museum" franchise, where he will play Lancelot.

Stevens made his Broadway debut in last year's 'The Heiress,' opposite Jessica Chastain. He was recently seen in the British independent film Summer, in which he stars alongside Dominic Cooper and Emily Browning and which he also executive-produced and Amy Heckerling's Vamps with Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter and Sigourney Weaver.

Stevens' other stage credits include the lead role of "Septimus Hodge" in David Leveaux's hit West End production of Tom Stoppard's Arcadia, and the "Doctor" in Tom Stoppard and André Previn's Every Good Boy Deserves Favour at The National Theatre. He has worked frequently with Sir Peter Hall on productions including The Vortex (West End), Hay Fever (Haymarket Theatre), Much Ado About Nothing and As You Like It, which wowed audiences in London, New York and Los Angeles, and earned him an Ian Charleson Award nomination which is the British theatrical award to reward the best classical stage performances in Britain by actors aged under 30.
