Dan Stevens In Talks for Wikileaks Movie

Actor Dan Stevens attends Ermenegildo Zegna "Essenze" Collection Launch Event at The Ermenegildo Zegna Boutique on December 3, 2012 in New York City.

Dowton Abbey's Dan Stevens is in negotiations to join Bill Condon's Wikileaks movie, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange. According to Variety, Stevens is in talks to play the "hacker friend" of one of Assange's associates, who eventually starts working for the website. We'll just assume the Sherlock/Cousin Matthew slash fiction will write itself.
