Patton Oswalt Wants to Star in Downton Abbey

Patton Oswalt has gone total fanboy over the popular British period drama Downtown Abbey. The Los Angeles-based comedian declared himself “as besotted as a vicar at a crumpet orgy” over the show, and he enthusiastically live-tweeted his viewing of the 2nd season premiere.

But he took things to a new level this weekend when he posted this dashing photo of himself on Twitter, saying:

Consider this my audition, DOWNTON ABBEY. Season 3. Philbrick, the scone-stealing valet.

C’mon, England. This just has to happen.
