Downton Abbey: Is Thomas Barrow a Top or a Bottom?

The Downton Abbey cast is on a New York press tour to promote the American premiere of the show's fourth season, making stops at The View and Watch What Happens Live, where the important questions are being asked, like whether Thomas, the irrepressible footman, is a pitcher or a catcher.


Actor Rob James-Collier said he didn't understand the question, which actually seemed like a fib, but given how he answered it, he may have been telling the truth.

While the B and C list of the cast (Thomas, Edith, Mrs. Patmore, and Branson) slummed it over on basic cable on Watch What Happens Live, the A listers (Lady Mary and the Earl of Grantham) stopped by a major network to appear on The View. Barbara Walters was very vocal about her aversion to seeing the cast in modern-day clothing, saying she wished they'd come on the show wearing "the tails and the thing and the corsets and the stuff."

Shut your mouth! Lady Mary and the Earl of Grantham are such a snooze fest. All the juicy stuff happens downstairs. And Edith will have her day.
