Clooney apparently agreed to appear in the piece after being asked by his good friend, Hugh Bonneville, who plays the Earl of Grantham. The two met while filming The Monuments Men. And I thought it was just because Clooney’s gorgeous new wife loves Downton Abbey. Whatever the reason, it’s our gain, so watch these tongue-in-cheek Downton Abby / George Clooney mashups for the win!
Must have more?
As you wish.
And I guess it’s for ITV’s Text Santa fundraiser, so there’s that. Haven’t checked it out yet…too busy hitting rewind and staring dreamily into Clooney’s eyes (although my favorite part is Thomas, the footman, stealing the silver).
Share and Enjoy
