Legion: first trailer released

Legion: first trailer released

Dan shared a link to the first trailer for Legion on Twitter, but sadly it is not viewable outside the US. Please find a version below which should be viewable to all. 

Legion follows David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and visions might be real.

Legion debuts in early 2017 and is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television.


Well, I certainly can't wait

Well, I certainly can't wait to watch you act in any movie or tv program. I may not be into this type of genre, but it definitely helps watching something when your favorite actor is starring in it. Same goes for 'The Guest.' I would have never even thought about watching that movie, but I want to see all of the different roles you put yourself into. I don't have the FX channel, but I will most definitely be signing back up to Hulu just to be able to watch this. Hopefully it'll be available to watch on there

trailer of Dans new film

I hardly know where to begin. Its another of the weird movies you have been making Dan. I just dont get it. Why are you being offered and then agreeing to make these films? I realise one has to make a living, dont we all? But I guess its a generation thing, but its another film I shall not be watching.
We dont get your movies here in the UK anyway.
Its such a shame that you are not being offered roles that could really can show what you are about, Dan. We in the UK are familiar with your talents either on stage, or t.v. but these kind of roles are not furthering your career. I only hope I am around to see "Beauty and the Beast" next year. That surely must be worth watching.
So Sorry Dan. You are worth so much more. Get rid of your Agents or whoever is advising you. They are killing your career. I could do a better job than these guys. Trust me.

USA versus UK

Dan's advisors promoting him in films and tv work that mostly screens in the US.Agree that some of it accessable via the internet but not always.

Dan is popular both in the UK and USA but at the moment British fans appear to be getting something of a raw deal. This web site does a fantastic job in keeping us up to date but it is obvious that Dan's agents want to build him up for their own market.

I have been an admirer of his work for several years and thought he'd made the right move in leaving Downton and trying his hand in the US. His performance in The Guest won critical acclaim but had limited exposure in the UK. When I mention Dan's name I'm frequently met with a blank look and "Who?",which the reply "The fellow who died on Xmas day in Downton" usually brings recognition.

After nearly 4 years and all the work he has done, it is sad that he seems to be only known for this! His advisors need to accept that they are doing him no favours with this US bias.

Come on...

Dan is doing what he wants to do, where he wants to do it, with his family around him, expanding his range of roles, exploring new genres, meeting new challenges. We know, & he knows, he is more than capable when it comes to period, traditional roles, but he does not want to stay within the confines of those works.
He has often spoken of his love of stage productions and will no doubt return to the theatre, maybe on both sides of the Atlantic.
Of course I would like to see him doing more work that is more readily available within the UK but it is possible to access much of it via DVDs or the internet. For example his literary/poetry readings in New York are/were available from iTunes.
As for films, well, many of those recently completed are yet to be released, via cinema, DVDs or VOD - The Ticket, Oppenehimer Strategies, Colossal, Redivider, Marshall, Permission, Legion & of course Beauty & The Beast. 2017 is going to an amazing year!
One field of work I do miss very much is his audiobook work, nothing new of late, but it is no displeasure to listen to & enjoy again any of the books that he has performed. I expect that in due course, he will narrate more books....meanwhile I will continue to watch whatever he does....I have to say I have followed him into genres I had not visited before and have been very agreeably surprised. So, thank you Dan, for having the courage to follow your dreams & open my mind to new ventures.


Downton Abbey was screened in many countries not just UK and US, making Dan known to a wide audience. His films and tv work need to be more widely available as Matthew Crawley may be the only role that he is known for in some countries.

It is good that Dan is expanding the range of roles and genres he plays and deserves all praise for this. From comedy to fast action he excels and deserves wider recognition and this will only happen with adequate promotion.
