LONDON, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- ITV has released a first look at George Clooney on the set of Downton Abbey, where he poses with Lord Grantham himself, series star Hugh Bonneville.

The 53-year-old actor, who recently married British barrister Amal Alamuddin, will take part in a Downton Abbey spin-off sketch for Text Santa, a Christmas charity drive.


The photograph shows Clooney in his 1930s period costume, a gray three-piece suit.

The sketch is part of an annual holiday tradition in which British television networks film star-studded specials to raise money for charity.

Clooney also appears briefly in a sneak peek of the sketch. According to a synopsis, a "very special heavenly body" will show Lord Grantham what life would be like without him.
