A thrilling wardrobe change is set for one of the guest stars in “Galavant.” From a respected Earl clothing, Hugh Bonneville of “Downton Abbey” will change it to something a bit more toned down and less extravagant.  Read on to learn more about Hugh Bonneville’s role on ABC’s “Galavant.”

TV Line reported that Bonneville will join John Stamos as guest stars of “Galavant.” Bonneville  is set to play the role of Peter the Pillager, while Stamos will take on the role as Galavant’s main rival in the show. Both of them are the latest additions to the cast members of the upcoming ABC series.

In “Downton Abbey,” Bonneville was known for being prim and proper as the Earl of Grantham. His character in the ABC musical will be the king of the pirates who will meet Galavant. Bonneville will start shooting this fall, side by side with his “Downton Abbey” shooting.

The upcoming musical comedy centers on the story of Prince Galavant. The prince started a journey to avenge his one true love against the king who captured her. The series stars Joshua (Prince Galavant), Mallory Jansen (Madalena), Karen David (Isabella), Timothy Omundson (King Richard), Vinnie Jones (Gareth) and Luke Youngblood (Sid).

“Galavant” is one of the most-awaited series for the upcoming television season to date. It will join the roster of the musical-themed TV series which includes FOX’s “Glee” and the former “SMASH” series. It will run its first season with 13 episodes, which will air in 2015.  It will be aired during the gap of “Once Upon A Time” Season 4.
