Michelle Dockery plays Connie Tough in a new Downton Abbey spoof video
Funny Or Die
Michelle Dockery has let Lady Mary take on the dark and dangerous world of crime-fighting in a brilliant new police drama parody video entitled 'Tough Justice', released in the US to mark the season four premiere of Downton Abbey.
Narrated by Jon Hamm, the ficticious trailer shows Michelle playing Connie Tough, a no-nonsense Chicago cop who takes to the streets with her beefy partner in crime (played by Michael Chiklis).
Featuring the British actress firing guns, starting fights and working one seriously sexy police uniform of skin-tight jeans and a tailored suit jacket, the Funny Or Die comedy skit sees Michelle flexing the grittier side of her acting talents as she sheds Lady Mary's prim and proper persona. Well, nearly...
Clearly finding it hard to let go of her period drama character completely, Michelle soon slips back into a few old habits as she finds her Downton days come back to haunt her.
Watch the hilarious spoof below to find out the consequences...
