Dan Stevens Replaces Armie Hammer in ‘Gaslit’

Dan Stevens has landed the role intended for Armie Hammer in the upcoming Starz series Gaslit. Gaslit will focus on the Watergate scandal during the Nixon administration.

The 38-year-old actor will play John Dean, described by Variety as a “young White House Counsel torn between his ambition and his struggle with whether he can lie to protect the President.”

The series also stars Julia Roberts as Martha Mitchell (who in real life, was the first person to publicly call out Nixon’s involvement in the scandal), and Sean Penn as Attorney General John Mitchell, Martha’s husband.

Armie has been replaced in several projects now, but, there’s one upcoming project that he’s going to forge on as the lead, as of now. Hammer has been accused of rape in recent weeks.
