Dan is set to team up with Legion creator Noah Hawley, only this time it’s for the big screen! The film also starts Natalie Portman and Jon Hamm (who, fun fact does the narration for season 2 episodes of Legion!) You can read the press release for the film below.  Make sure to follow our sites twitter, @danstevensnet for all the latest news and info on Dan. And don’t forget to bookmark the site too!

Dan Stevens will play Natalie Portman’s on-screen spouse in Fox Searchlight’s astronaut drama “Pale Blue Dot.”

Portman will portray a married astronaut who returns to Earth after a mission and begins an affair with a fellow astronaut, played by Jon Hamm. The film explores the theory that astronauts who spend long periods of time in space lose their sense of reality when they come back home.  Zazie Beetz is set to portray an astronaut trainee who also becomes involved with Hamm’s character.

The film reteams Stevens with his “Legion” creator Noah Hawley, who’s directing from a script by Brian C. Brown and Elliott DiGuiseppi. Reese Witherspoon, who was initially attached to star, will produce with Bruna Papandrea.

The movie is inspired by a true-life astronaut love triangle in which mission specialist Lisa Nowak was arrested and subsequently charged with the attempted kidnapping of U.S. Air Force Captain Colleen Shipman, who was romantically involved with astronaut William Oefelein. Nowak agreed to a plea deal in 2009 and was discharged from the U.S. Navy in 2010. – Source – Variety.com

Dan is set to make his way back to the big screen once more and this time he will be joining Cara Delevingne, Eric Stoltz, Virginia Madsen, Dylan Gelula and Elisabeth Moss in ‘Her Smell’.  Dan is set to play the role of Elisabeth Moss’ estranged husband.  The news was announced at Cannes Film Festival earlier this week and you can read the press release from Deadline below.

Voltage Pictures has announced a huge ensemble joining Elisabeth Moss in the punk rock pic Her Smell including Cara Delevingne, Dan Stevens, Eric Stoltz, Virginia Madsen, Dylan Gelula and Eka Darville. They also join Amber Heard, Ashley Benson, Agyness Deyn and Gayle Rankin who were previously announced.

Moss stars as Becky Something, a maniacally destructive punk rock star and leader of the seminal all-female rock band Something She, who pushes her relationships with bandmates, family and followers to the limit as she wages a years long war against sobriety, while attempting to re-engage the creativity that had once led her band to massive crossover success. When a new, younger female band called The Akergirls, led by Delevingne’s Cassie, bursts onto the scene, Becky becomes their mentor. With added responsibility and watching her former friend Zelda E. Zekial (Amber Heard) rise to celebrity megastardom while her career falters, Becky falls deeper into her downward spiral, losing all ties with those she cares about most, including her young daughter and estranged husband Danny (Dan Stevens). It is only when Becky hits rock bottom that she finds her path to true redemption. She must rediscover her voice and take control of her life to be the woman she has always been meant to be, both for her daughter and for herself. Source.

In March Dan sat down with Sam Jones were they talked about various aspects of Dan’s career, life and more. It was a great interview and we have finally added HQ pictures of a small photoshoot that Dan did with Sam as well as a 12 page digital scan of the magazine which includes some of Dan’s interview. You can check them out in the gallery and also watch some videos which were posted on Sam’s Youtube page himself.  Make sure to follow our sites twitter, @danstevensnet for all the latest news and info on Dan.

Dan Stevens rose to fame in the popular British period drama Downton Abbey. And don’t say you didn’t get a little weepy when good old Matthew Crawley met his untimely death due to a lack of seatbelts and a desire to leave British costume drama behind. Dan had this crazy idea to move to America and test his mettle in roles and environs as far from Highclere Castle as possible.

You might think he was mad for leaving a show at the height of its popularity, but Dan’s pretty comfortable with madness. As he explains, “Filmmaking is an exercise in collective madness; it’s one mad person saying, ‘I have this mad idea. What do you think?’ When you find another mad person who thinks you’re maybe not so mad, it’s the most beautiful thing in the world.”

An appetite for expanding his oeuvre has led Dan to team up with fellow madman Noah Hawley as the lead in his mind-boggling television show Legion, very loosely based on the Marvel comic book series of the same name. Dan plays David Haller, a seemingly schizophrenic mutant whose mind has been hijacked by a disturbing and hilarious parasite, played by a maniacal Aubrey Plaza. And if that sounds confusing, you don’t know the half of it.

Dan joins Off Camera to discuss what he loves about the uncertainty of Legion, how he found his voice for Beauty and the Beast, why you might catch him at the local deli taking a new accent out for a spin, and why we must hold on to our invisible wrist watches.

First I want to say sorry for the recent lack of updates on the site – we will work on getting the recent news and pictures added this weekend. But first, some new HQ pictures of Dan attending Build Series in New York to discuss Legion’s latest season – including what made him take the role as David Haller, what makes Legion different from other shows and expanding the world of Legion in season 2. You can check out a video of Dan’s panel below (sadly not including fan questions).


Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, “Legion” is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a man who believed himself to be schizophrenic only to discover that he may actually be the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen. Watch Stevens stop by BUILD to talk about the new season of the FX series.
