According to the Hollywood Reporter, former lifetime bachelor George Clooney is set to appear in a short Downton Abbey-related film that will air during the holiday season on ITV.

"Oh, 'ello, mate! Whut ah you dewwin' 'ere!" "Oh, 'ello! Oim George Clooney, no'ed actah from the states." "Noice to meet you, oim Lady Mary!," etc. Is that how it's going to be? The Hollywood Reporter doesn't say, but they do report that the film will be part of an annual charity campaign:

The film is part of ITV's annual Text Santa campaign that raises money for six U.K. charities. Clooney's role in the film has not yet been revealed.

"Oh, 'ello, so noice to raise money for charity, inn'it, Mr. Clooney?" "Oi, Lady Mary, t'is! Let's not let this get pear-shaped, oi?" "Oi!"

Downton Abbey will return to ITV for its fifth season this month, and will start on PBS on January 4, 2015.
