As with any landmark television show, one of the fun parts of revisiting Downton Abbey is seeing the number of careers it launched. Abbey served as a pretty incredible pipeline of talented British actors and actresses, all of whom seem to be landing solidly on their feet in Hollywood. That’s the good news for Abbey fans: the bad news is that with increased success comes increased scheduling difficulty. This wasn’t a series like Firefly where you basically only needed to lock down a handful of actors; to do Downton Abbey right, you’d want to bring in a dozen-plus members of the original cast, and that’s an increasingly tough proposition.

The final episode will air later on this year, but when, your servants inquire?
The 2013 Emmy nominations have arrived and at first glance, it's more of the same. Of course 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men,' 'Homeland' and 'Downton Abbey' seem to be dominating the drama category! Of course '30 Rock,' 'Louie' and 'Veep' are contenders in the comedy category! However, the big surprise with this year's nominations is that one of the most nominated shows wasn't even on TV at all.
As with ever new season of 'Downton Abbey' it could prove a while yet before season 4 makes its way stateside to give fans the posh British drama they so desperately crave. Thankfully, one of America's less refined series is content to speed things up, as 'Family Guy' brings 'Downton Abbey' star Michelle Dockery in for a guest role! Find out what familiar role the famous 'Downton' star will play o
