Paul Giammati Joins “Downton Abbey” For Season Four


Confirming our theory that Paul Giamatti eventually gets cast in everything, Deadline is reporting that the actor—currently filming the Amazing Spider-Man sequel—is joining the cast of Downton Abbey for the show’s fourth season.  Giamatti joins fellow American Shirley MacLaine and new additions like Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Joann David and looker Tom Cullen as newly widowed Mary’s love interest. Emmy-winning Giamatti is slated to play Countess Cora’s brother, Harold.

Downton will return on January 5—but can you we that long?
