Omega Le Jardin SecretWhat will the Dowager Countess have to say about this?! It seems George Clooney has taken over the body of Robert Crawley, Lord Grantham, on "Downton Abbey"!

It's just for a hot minute, of course. The debonaire movie star/director is merely appearing in a charity comedy sketch for ITV's "Text Santa" special, and there's a very brief first clip showing how Clooney fits into the world of "Downton."

Seems he fits right into Lord Grantham's spot: When Lady Grantham (Elizabeth McGovern says, "Dearest, Lord and Lady Carlisle have asked us over for dinner tonight," it isn't Hugh Bonneville who turns around.

"Text Santa" airs in the U.K. on December 18. "Downton Abbey" season 5 premieres on PBS on January 4 (it already aired on ITV this fall, excepting the Christmas special).
