WATCH: Dan Stevens (Matthew Crawley In Downton Abbey) Plays A Cross-Dressing, Weed Smoking Hipster Dad In This Rad Short Film


Posted on

Following the demise of Downton Abbey's loveliest of gents Matthew Crawley, actor Dan Stevens decided to a) get REALLY FREAKING HOT, and b) throw one hell of a curveball by starring in critically-acclaimed web series High Maintenance. These short films, in which 'a nameless cannabis dealer delivers to clients with neuroses as diverse as the city they live in', are made by hot hipster couple Ben Sinclair and Katja Blichfeld, and are hilarious and often touching windows into, and pastiches of, the lives of the young and super cool in New York, focusing on the theme of loneliness.

This particular episode, "Rachel", sees Dan Stevens as a blocked writer and stay-at-home dad who smokes a shit-ton of weed all day. Oh yeah, and he also dresses up in his wife's beautiful Rachel Comey wardrobe. And smokes a shit-ton of weed. And reads cross-dressing blogs. And smokes a shit-ton of weed.

Here's the episode: / Via

It's so great and there's a really lovely little twist of sorts at the end.
