George Clooney and Hugh Bonneville George Clooney and Hugh Bonneville

Well of course George Clooney looks dapper in 1930s duds. The man can look good in any decade. The recently wedded A-plus lister booked a guest stint on a Downton Abbey sketch for a UK charity holiday special, and we have a picture and video to prove it.

In the photo, Clooney poses with Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville, whom Clooney worked with on The Monuments Men, grinning for a promotional shot in support of Text Santa, a telethon that encourages UK residents to donate to good causes.

Clooney's guest spot, in which he'll play an American guest at a wedding held on the Crawley estate, is part of a sketch that will appear on ITV on Dec. 19. We're crossing our fingers and toes that the bit makes it over to the United States shortly after. Here's a sneak peek of the clip: 

In other Clooney news, the actor was targeted by fellow big shot Christian Bale for harping on about the paparazzi. In the The Wall Street Journal, Bale addressed Clooney's outspoken "railing" about the tabloids and his right to privacy.

"I know, but it's boring, isn't?" Bale said. "You know what I mean? It doesn't matter that [Clooney] talks about it. It's like, come on guys, just shut up. Just get on with it and live your lives and stop whining about it. I prefer not to whine about it."
