The fourth season of Downton Abbey kicked off last night here in the U.S. to record-breaking ratings, but star Michelle Dockery is ready to stretch her acting chops a bit with something decidedly different: a cop show. Funny or Die has released a “trailer” for a TNT series called Tough Justice starring Dockery and Michael Chiklis as mismatched cops, and it seems that Dockery is having some trouble fully letting go of her Downton role as Lady Mary, even in the modern world of hardened cops. The sketch is really funny and shows that Dockery has some serious skills as a comedic actress. How long before SNL comes calling? Hit the jump to watch the video.
