Clooney to Guest on ‘Downton Abbey’ Charity Sketch

Some of the blaring headlines would have you believe that George Clooney is going to guest star on this season of Downton Abbey, but that’s not exactly true. Instead, he’s apparently filmed a guest spot alongside his Monuments Men buddy and Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville in an Abbey sketch to benefit ITV’s December Text Santa charity telethon.

The Cloon was spotted last spring with his fiance, Amal Alamuddin, nosing around the Highclere Castle set where Abbey is filmed and the gossip rags all assumed he was scouting wedding locations.

No details on what Clooney’s part will be, but I hope it involves a bar fight.
