Sean 'Diddy' Combs' Joins 'Downton Abbey' Season Four?

UPDATE: It was all a joke from Funny or Die – watch the Downton Diddy sketch right now!

Sean “Diddy” Combs is the latest addition to the cast of Downton Abbey season four, according to the entertainer himself!

“MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i’ll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!” Diddy tweeted.

“I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today @DowntonAbbey,” he added. His Twitter profile background and header photo also reflects the hit period series.

No other details have been revealed, but the news has been denied by PBS. The new season will premiere in the U.S. on January 5, 2014 on PBS, but will be seen by British audiences first in the Fall.

Pictured here is a preview photo that Diddy posted on his Instagram!

Seriously? Jeez.They’re jumping the shark now. I presume any confirmation would actually come from ITV though, I know it shows on BBC America (I think) in the States but it’s ITV that own it.

umm what?

LOL.. even if this news is true.. I wonder what kind of role he’s going to play in a show that’s set in 1920′s 30′s britain… a butler? driver?

# 5

@Olivia: They jumped the shark a long time ago. Glorified soap opera with period costumes.

Uh oh, anything with Jay z, kanye or Diddy is first class shark jumping. Ick

Couldn’t find amazing black Brit? There are so many to choose from…..

Of course it’s not true. A rep for the show confirmed it:

Downton is an ITV production, not BBC…

Diddy is NOT going to be on Downton Abbey. It’s all a joke.

@shar: Some kind of a servant? It’s all a joke IMO.

They don’t Ebonics in England.

Maybe P. Diddy or someone else read my article and found the connection to a castle in “Downton Abbey.”

This is obviously some kind of stunt. P. Diddy is not going to appear on Downton Abbey. Did anyone really believed he was going to be on Downton Abbey?!?

WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

ummm ok

this show just became totally unwatchable!!!!

I’m pretty sure it’s true. Back on March 2 on Saturday Night Live, they mentioned the story during Weekend Update, that Downton Abbey would be introducing its first black character. That’s when they made a joke out of it, saying the man was sent to Downton “after he got in one little fight and his mom got scared.” Then they showed a picture of Will Smith/Fresh Prince in front of the Downton estate.

Good on him if he is going to be in it!

I am sick of seeing the ads about the program :(

You know what these comments against him being on the show say to me? Racism (choose your own definition) is alive and thriving. Hallelujah!
