Downton Abbey SPOOF He's already Hollywood royalty, but now George Clooney has become an Earl – in the world of Downton Abbey, anyway. Clooney assumed his long-awaited and temporary role in the British aristocracy in a special 9-minute episode of the show for the TV fundraiser Text Santa. In the hilarious tongue-in-cheek video above, Lord Grantham – with the help of Ab Fab's Patsy Stone! – sees what life would be like at the Abbey if he were replaced by a certain George Oceans Gravity, Marquis of Hollywood – otherwise known as Lord Hollywood. And we'll just say Downton has been turned upside down by Clooney's charms. In fact, Lord Hollywood had such an effect on Dame Maggie Smith's character, the Dowager Countess, that when he kissed her hand she fell off her perch and collapsed on the floor. "That man has got the entire household behaving like fools!" Lord Grantham says, after seeing how his loved ones behave without his influence. "Downton has gone to rack and ruin without me." Luckily, the whol ...

“Downton Abbey” was recently renewed for a fifth season, but it looks like some of the main actors may not stay for long: both Elizabeth McGovern (Lady Cora) and Maggie Smith (the Dowager Countess) have hinted that they may soon leave “Downton” to focus on other aspects of their careers.
Isobel Crawley to Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham : "You are as infirm as Windsor Castle". brilliant!
LONDON (AP) - British royalty has met acting aristocracy, as Britain's Queen Elizabeth II bestowed an honor on Maggie Smith during a ceremony at Windsor Castle. Smith, who plays the imperious Dowager Countess of Grantham on "Downton Abbey," was made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honor Friday in recognition of her six decades in theater, cinema and television. The award is limited to 65 living people "of distinction." Other members include physicist Stephen Hawking, actor Ian McKellen and artist David Hockney. The 79-year-old actress has won two Academy Awards, for "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" and "California Suite." She is currently filming "The Lady in the Van," reprising her stage role as a homeless eccentric who parked for years on the driveway of playwright Alan Bennett.
