David Boreanaz Campaigns for Role on Downton Abbey

by at . Comments

On the season two finale of Downton Abbey, the Granthams sent Mary to America in order to wait out an impending scandal and, as her father put it, "find a cowboy in the Middle West and bring him back to shake us up a bit."

Bones star David Boreanaz, meanwhile, has a casting suggestion for the role of that cowboy: himself!

Booth Up in Arms

You could do a lot worse than Seeley Both, Lady Mary Crawley.

"I'd like to be that American cowboy who shakes things up at Downton Abbey," the actor Tweeted this week to Executive Producer Julian Fellowes. "I'm open for a visit Mr Fellowes. #ITV @masterpiecepbs."

Must we even ask: Do you wanna see David Boreanaz on Downton Abbey?

It wouldn't be in place of Bones or anything. It would just be a guest-starring stint.


it could be story-line wise, even though the ratings are quit solid and consistent..
