The Earl of Gratham sings!  The very popular Hugh Bonneville of Downton Abbey will be seen in the upcoming ABC musical series, Galavant!  According to TV Line, Bonneville will play Peter the Pillager, a Pirate King who Galavant and Co. encounter on their journey.

The 13-episode series Galavant, which will air in early 2015 (bridging the gap between Once Upon a Time‘s fall and spring runs), centers on Prince Galavant (Joshua Sasse) as he seeks revenge over the king who stole his one true love.

Bonneville will shoot his guest stint this fall during his Downton Abbey hiatus.  Former GH star, John Stamos (Ex-Blackie) will also be in the series as a knight who will meet Galavant on the jousting field.

    Sounds interesting, although I shall curb my enthusiasm until I’m certain John Stamos will actually be appearing in this show….and that it’s NOT just another cruel tease from the network that unleashed Ron C. on us!

    I may watch for H.G. But it sounds like the pirates of Penzance That is probably the only musical I never liked. JOHN S and ABC. Wow.
