VIDEO: Jimmy Fallon Unleashes 'Downton Abbey' Spoof
For those anxious for more of Downton Abbey, late night host Jimmy Fallon has stepped in with a spot-on spoof of the costume drama. Fallon's "Downton Sixbey" captures the intrigue of the Emmy-winning PBS series and re-imagines it as a behind-the-scenes drama revolving around Fallon's "Late NIght" show, which happens to film in Studio 6B.
Fallon, who made it big doing spoofs and sketches on Saturday Night Live, stars as the Earl of Downton Sixbey, while announcer Steve Higgins appears as his loyal valet and A.D. Miles takes on a cross-dressing role as the Dowager Countess. Actress Brooke Shields makes a cameo as the Earl's wife, Lady Nora.
In the first of what we hope is many episodes, staffers in the writing room struggle to come up with ideas to meet the Earl's demand for more jokes about the Kardashians. Meanwhile, the Earl is hosting a dinner party to welcome a foreigner when he receives word of a horrible tragedy — Carson Daly, heir to Downton Sixbey, has been killed in a tragic hot air balloon accident with his Voice co-star Christina Aguilera.
