The Downton Abbey cast has gathered for a delightfully zany (British-humored) and very special Christmas short for the TV fundraiser Text Santa. With cameos by Jeremy Piven (Mr. Selfridge) and Absolutely Fabulous' Joanna Lumley, it pokes just enough fun at itself to remind you why you have spent hours watching rich white people worry about how rich they are.
In the "What if Lord Grantham was never born"-themed short, it seems the man of the house has been replaced by the ever-dapper George Clooney, aka Lord Hollywood. And how the antics ensue! Fact: Dame Maggie Smith does the best Dame Maggie Smith impression of all time.
