Is anyone immune to the charms of George Clooney?

Clearly, the famously frosty occupants of Downton aren't – even the stiff upper lips of butler Carson and housekeeper Mrs. Hughes have been turned into glowing smiles by the Oscar-winner's presence.

The selfie was taken during the filming of Clooney's appearance in a special charity sketch of Downton Abbey. The hit period drama airs on British TV on Friday at 4 p.m. ET.

First he gained a British wife, and now George Clooney has joined the aristocracy – well, at Downton Abbey, anyway!

As these on-set pictures prove, Clooney looks every inch the 1930s gentleman, too – complete with slicked-back hair and a wide-lapeled suit.

All he needs to complete the look is a shotgun and a trusty valet to carry his luggage.

Downton Abbey's Elizabeth McGovern Is in a Band

Originally posted 11/13/2014 09:10PM

Turns out, Cora Crawley can rock!

Though she plays the upper-crust aristocrat on Downton Abbey, in real life, Elizabeth McGovern spends her free time jamming with her folk/country band, Sadie and the Hotheads, and can be heard singing on the upcoming – wait for it – Christmas at Downton Abbey album, out Nov. 17. So what exactly does a Downton Abbey Christmas album sound like?

"It's just a really nice collection of Christmas songs done in a classical way, with the Budapest City orchestra and a beautiful choir," McGovern tells PEOPLE. And cast members singing! McGovern does a solo version of "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," as well as a duet of "The First Noel" with fellow Downton cast mate Julian Ovenden who plays Charles Blake, one of Lady Mary's two new suitors. (Ovenden, a professional singer, has several other solo songs on the album.) Jim Carter, who plays Carson, does a spoken-word version of " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas."

"Downton Abbey and the Crawley family have kept us on the edge of our seats as they navigate through some of the biggest moments of the 20th century," she continued. "Along with our member stations, PBS can't wait to share the next season of Downton drama with our audiences."

Allen Leech: My Friends Try to See My Downton Abbey Scripts

Allen Leech tries to lead a spoiler-free life when he's not playing Tom Branson on Downton Abbey – but his friends make it pretty difficult.

"I used to live in a house with four guys, all of my friends," the actor, 33, told PEOPLE Thursday while attending the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards.

"I had to be very careful where the scripts were left, because suddenly you'd come in and someone would [say], 'I couldn't help but see that episode four was there.' I was like, 'Oh, my God!' So I tend not to tell anyone. Not even family. No one gets it out of me, which is good!"
