When EW reunited the cast of Sisters, the beloved NBC drama that ran from 1991-1996, talk naturally turned to a certain former co-star turned Sexiest Man Alive: George Clooney.
“I ran into George a few years ago and I said to him, ‘I told you not to leave Sisters! Your career has never recovered,” says Julianne Phillips (Frankie Reed) with a laugh. “It was great to see him. He’s so incredibly sweet and kind. Just the same George as he always was.”

EW has confirmed that George Clooney will appear in a short Downton Abbey-related film. The film is part of Text Santa, a fundraising campaign initiated by ITV, the U.K. broadcaster of Downton Abbey.
