'Downton' Star Gets Big Movie Role
Jessica Brown Findlay caught my eye as Lady Sybil on everyone's favorite TK series Downton Abbey -- and Hollywood is jonesing for more Jessica as well.
Not only is she rumored to be one of the front-runners for the Captain America sequel, but Jessica is currently filming Winter's Tale in New York with Colin Farrell.
The two were spotted riding a white horse through Brooklyn's Prospect Park yesterday as they evaded a horde bad guys. The movie, based on Mark Helprin's 1983 novel, is a love story that takes place in a mythic New York City around the turn of the 20th century.
Joining Colin and Jessica in the film are Russell Crowe, Will Smith, Matt Bomer, Jennifer Connelly and William Hurt. Academy Award winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) makes his feature film directorial debut with Winter's Tale, due in theaters next year.
