Lady Mary is the kind of role that could stereotype an actress, but Michelle Dockery has the good sense to be making fun of her aristocratic counterpart already. In this Funny or Die spoof, she plays opposite Michael Chiklis in a pretend -- but painfully close to real -- new TNT crime series, Tough Justice.

'Tough Justice,' Funny or Die Spoof

Who says you can't wear a tiara to a crime scene? Lady Mary is the kind of role that could stereotype an actress, so Michelle Dockery has the good sense to be making fun of her aristocratic counterpart already. In this Funny or Die spoof, she plays opposite Michael Chiklis in a pretend -- but painfully close to real -- new TNT crime series, Tough Justice. Yes, Dockery is now Connie Tough, although the Downton Abbey traditions and good manners are exceedingly ingrained. Check out the gloves she wears to hande evidence.

Jon Hamm narrates the mock trailer, as Lady Mary Crawley meets Vic Mackey, with voiceover by Don Draper -- don't tell the Dowager Countess. It will give her the vapors. Click here to watch at Funny or Die.
