Some months ago, it was revealed that George Clooney spent some time shooting scenes on the Downton Abbey set. This morning, ITV finally revealed the actor’s big debut on Downton Abbey, for a charity video. He actually looks pretty swell in 1920s attire, even if his hair and tan are a little bit out of place in the 20th Century. But don’t take our word for it. Check out the first look at Clooney on Downton Abbey, in gif form, because obviously.
Back in September, Clooney was seen at Highclere Castle, shooting footage for the ITV “Text Santa” short film, which is expected to air on the UK network on December 18. At the time, we didn’t know much about the guest appearance, except that at one point Clooney will try to kiss the Dowager Countess, played by Maggie Smith. Now that we’ve seen a little more footage, we know that the holidays are nigh at Downton. However, we seem to be in some sort of alternate reality Downton Abbey world as Cora, the Countess of Grantham, refers to the actor as “Dear” and the Earl of Grantham is nowhere to be found. A girl could get used to this version of Downton Abbey, especially if it doesn't involve any more people unceremoniously getting killed off. Check out the full video, below.
Of course, Clooney isn’t the first big guest star the show has welcomed onto the Downton Abbey set. Famous names, including Paul Giamatti, Shirley MacLaine, and more have popped up on the series before. Regardless--and no offense to those actors--none of them have quite the spark that Clooney brings to the short clip. He doesn't even have to say anything to be pretty dazzling. But that's just Clooney. No matter what he's doing, saying or not saying, he's running everyone else over with his handsomeness and smooth features.
Downton Abbey fans in the UK are currently gearing up for the Downton Abbey Christmas Special along with the charity special from ITV. Here in the States, Downton Abbey Season 5 will begin airing on Sunday, January 4, 2015 at 9 p.m. ET over at PBS. That might seem like awhile away, but considering we still have Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year's to look forward to, the time should fly by.
