Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (due out Dec. 19) is the third and final bow of the successful comedic franchise centered around nocturnally animated museum exhibits and regular-guy night watchman Larry Daley (Ben Stiller)...

...Dan Stevens continues to break away from his Downton Abbey persona by playing a comical Sir Lancelot underneath 50 pounds of armor, a role that Levy calls "a comedic revelation."

Stevens enjoyed finding the "silly, larger-than-life" side to the famed Knight of the Round Table, even if it meant literally riding a horse through Trafalgar Square during a night shoot. "That was a bit bizarre." He also describes the surreal scene of having late-night conversations next to the Rosetta Stone with Robin Williams during night shoot breaks in the museum. Stiller, too, was wowed by having "access to this incredible place that you would just never have a chance to walk around by yourself."...

...In The Guest (due out Sept. 17) he plays a mysterious soldier with an American accent in a role that earned plaudits at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in January. In June, a trailer dropped for the thriller, which showed Stevens wielding a handgun, smoking and looking smoking hot in a post-shower scene.

"The eyebrows were definitely raised by people used to seeing me in Downton Abbey form," says Stevens, 31. "I'm enjoying surprising people in all sorts of ways."

Stevens will continue the menace with A Walk Among the Tombstones with Liam Neeson (Sept. 19), where he plays a drug trafficker. He's just wrapped Criminal Activities with Michael Pitt, due out next summer. He also started production on The Ticket, where he stars as a blind man who regains his sight, but turns entirely superficial.

BREAK AWAY AND OUT!

DAN HAS SOME EXCITING THINGS IN THE WORKS, GOOD FOR HIM, I WILL BE "FRONT AND CENTER" FOR EACH AND ALL, BUT I DO HOPE THERE WILL BE SOMETHING IN THE ROMANTIC VEIN SOON! THERE HAS BEEN A SERIOUS SHORTAGE OF HEART THROBS SINCE MATTHEW DIED.
