This might be the best news we’ve heard all year. George Clooney is set to star in a Downton Abbey in a special charity sketch this Christmas.
It's confirmed that he'll play an American attending a wedding at the estate, but a spokesperson for the show declined to reveal any further details.
Clooney apparently accepted the role after becoming friendly with Downton star Hugh Bonneville.
Suddenly we're very excited for Christmas.
The previous version of this headline said George Clooney would be appearing in an episode of Downton Abbey. He is actually appearing in a Downton Abbey sketch for the ITV'S Text Santa fundraiser this Christmas.
