|George Clooney will appear in a Downton Abbey sketch during ITV's Text Santa telethon.|
According to The Daily Telegraph, Clooney has already filmed his scenes for the special, Text Santa, which is scheduled to be broadcast in the UK around the holidays.
Clooney told another British paper in February he was "too lowly for a part" on the acclaimed show, airing in the United States on PBS, joking, "I can't do the accent either."
The fifth season of Downton Abbey premieres on September 21 on the UK's ITV. The series returns to the U.S. on January 4.
