Looks like Oscar winning superstar George Clooney is the next American actor to appear on the highly successful British series Downton Abbey! But this time its not as part of the upcoming season five of the Emmy-winning drama which debuts on ITV in the U.K. on September 21st.
According to ITV, Clooney will appear in a one-off charity episode of ‘Downton’ where he will guest-star in a sketch as an American guest at a wedding held on the Crawley estate. The sketch will be included in ITV charity fundraiser Text Santa.
Clooney has ties with Downton Abbey through its co-star Hugh Bonneville (Earl of Grantham)!
The duo starred in the motion picture Monuments Men which was also produced and directed by Clooney earlier this year.
