Paul Giamatti is reportedly joining the cast of “Downton Abbey.”

And while there have been reports about Gwyneth Paltrow starring on the show, as well as stories about the Rolling Stones doing a guest spot on the hit U.K. series, unlike those past claims, Giamatti is actually going to be on the program.

TV Line says the Emmy-winning star has been cast as Harold Levinson, “playboy brother of Cora,” played by Elizabeth McGovern and son of Martha (Shirley MacLaine), and he’s set to cause some mayhem.
