LOL: Downton Abbey Cast Spoof The Show with George Clooney, Joanna Lumley, Jeremy Piven


Really laughing– For a British charity called Text Santa, Julian Fellowes and the whole “Downton Abbey” cast spoof the show in two videos. George Clooney stars Lord Oceans Gravity aka Lord Hollywood. Joanna Lumley is an angel who shows Lord Grantham what Downton Abbey would be like without him. Jeremy Piven plays his Mr. Selfridge character. For Abbey fans, the whole thing is a riot. I don’t know what Text Santa is, but I will send them money having watched these videos. Merry Xmas! (I love it when Mary tells her father not to go for a spin in the car!)
