There's a new face in Downtown Abbey, and he looks like he's been using plenty of Dapper Dan.

George Clooney will be making an appearance in a special mini episode of the show as part of a fundraiser for ITV called Text Santa.

A very gif-able teaser clip released this week gives you a first look at his character who turns around and smiles after being approach by Lady Cora (Elizabeth McGovern).

The actual video will air as part of the special in the UK on December 19.

Handcuffed Celebrity of the Day: George Clooney, his father Nick, congressman Jim Moran (D-VA), and NAACP President Ben Jealous were among several people arrested this morning at a protest outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington.

The Associated Press reports that they were escorted to the back of a US Secret Service van.

Clooney has long been a vocal adversary of the government in Khartoum, which he accuses of perpetrating humanitarian crimes against its own people.

Earlier this week, Clooney spoke at a Congressional hearing, where he testified that "a campaign of murder" was taking place in Sudan, and warned of "a real humanitarian disaster" if something wasn't done within the next few months.

Tagline: "Some have luck in life. The rest of us might want to save some."
