George Clooney Cast for Downton Abbey Season 5

Hold the presses… Hold the presses… Is George Clooney set to be cast in this seasons Downton Abbey Season 5? I thought that too, but it seems that the Silver slaying fox will not. The writers at wet paint really like to make our hearts beat.

STOP! But don’t leave the page just yet. It’s not all inaccurate. Although Clooney will not be making a special on the television series, he will be within a sketch created by Julian Fellowes. He will be in a wedding sketch along with Hugh Bonneville and Michelle Dockery.

The sketch is going on to raise money for charity and will be played on the Downton grounds. But no one knows if it will take place on season 5 of Downton Abbey. But it starts off in the U.K. on September 21 and airs in the U.S. starting January 4, 2015.
