Michelle Dockery may be best known as Lady Mary in Downton Abbey but she’s about to take on a different role as a detective.
In a spoof for Funny or Die, the video titled Tough Justice spoofs shows like Law & Order but has the actress getting confused between roles. Playing Detective Connie Tough, Dockery forgoes her fancy 1920s dresses for a more modern pantsuit and even handles a gun. It’s a sight that would give her fictional father Lord Grantham a terrible fit. But as refreshing to see the actress in a contemporary role, things get hilarious when her straight-talking American character starts displaying some Lady Mary tics such as calling for Carson to bring the car around and pulling on satin gloves at a crime scene.
I don’t know about you, but I think Dockery would be a very charming SNL host. She can do a variety of accents and this spoof proves she’s always down for poking fun at herself!
