Downton Abbey alum Dan Stevens to play Lancelot in Night at the Museum 3

November 8, 2013 | Posted by Linda Ge in Casting

Dan Stevens continues to make the most of his post-”Downton Abbey” time, now booking a major role in threequel “Night at the Museum 3.” Deadline reports Stevens will play Lancelot – like out of Arthurian legend – opposite Ben Stiller as security guard turned entrepreneur (turned security guard again?) Larry Daley.

The third installment in the family-friendly comedy/action franchise will see Stiller’s Larry across the pond, dealing with museum exhibits at the London Museum coming to life. Somehow his old buddy Theodore Roosevelt – well, a statue of him, anyway – played by Robin Williams also gets shipped over too, so I’m betting we can expect other familiar faces like Owen Wilson’s tiny cowboy and Rami Malek’s ancient Egyptian pharaoh Ahkmenrah to make an appearance too. Lancelot is described as a pivotal role. I just hope he’ll have a Guinevere! Filming under Shawn Levy is expected to begin in early 2014.
