‘Downton Abbey’ with American accents is just WEIRD – watch!

Some TV shows should never have an American remake – and here’s the proof that Downton Abbey definitely needs to be added to that list.

Cast members Michelle Dockery, Allen Leech and Hugh Bonneville appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert a while back and host Stephen Colbert dared them to perform the script from an actual Downton Abbey scene, with American accents!

It’s really weird – and pretty hilarious.

Watch the clip:

It was finally revealed earlier this month when the Downton Abbey movie will begin filming.

Downton Abbey: The Complete Collection DVD box set is available on Amazon.
