Dan drew further attention to his look with his boots which were striped mustard, brown and red.

Wearing his hair slicked back, the actor added to his look for the evening with a pair of lime-tinted glasses. 

Dan is best known for playing Matthew Crawley, a distant middle-class cousin of the Crawleys in Downton Abbey.

Gaslit tells the story of the US Watergate scandal which stemmed from Richard Nixon’s administration attempts to cover up its involvement in the June 17, 1972, break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Washington D.C. Watergate building

In the new show, Julia plays Watergate whistleblower Martha Mitchell and Sean plays her husband Attorney General John Mitchell.

Martha was the first person who told the public about Watergate. But people turned on her, saying she was crazy.

Dan plays John Dean, a former attorney who served as Nixon’s White House Counsel and was known for his role in the cover-up of the scandal.

He later provided a testimony to Congress as a witness and was later disbarred as an attorney.

The show is said to be, ‘a modern take on Watergate that focuses on the untold stories and forgotten characters of the scandal.’ 

The ensemble cast also includes Patton Oswalt as Chuck Colson, who served as Special Counsel to Nixon and Reed Diamond as Mark Felt, the FBI agent who revealed in 2005 that he was the controversial anonymous source known as Deep Throat.
