(Please-no spoilers! Assume that all readers are viewing Downton Abbey as it airs on PBS)
Well, I think by now most people have heard the news about Shirley MacLaine being cast as Martha Levinson, Lady Cora's mother on Season 3 of Downton Abbey. Just as a reminder, Lady Cora is the token American on our favorite show. She married Lord Grantham when an infusion of money was needed to keep Downton running. She was the wealthy American who gave up her money for love.
What do you think about this? Is MacLaine a good choice?
I, for one, can't wait for the scene's between MacLaine and Maggie Smith.
