A lot of “Downton Abbey” fans got so excited when they learned that George Clooney was on the set of the show. However, sorry to break your excitement, he’s not going to be a part of the household, but he did make an appearance for a good deed. Read on to learn more about it.

According to Movie Pilot, the "Downton Abbey" cast and crew decided to showcase their funny side with a parody sketch for the Christmas season. They even went overboard when they cast George Clooney for a very special role.  This sketch is part of the “Text Santa” initiative that "aims to raise money for UK charities and organizations."

The sketch started as Lord Grantham receiving a shocking telegram. It was said that he lost the family's fortune once again that lead him to wish never to exist. It was until a Christmas angel arrived to let him know the Downton Abbey if he was never been born. The special episode featured a very disorganized household with Clooney as the head of the place. It only meant that the estate is more fun instead of actually being efficient.

The whole parody is really hilarious, and it’s something that “Downton Abbey” fans shouldn’t miss.
