Anjelica Huston did two seasons of Smash, and now she would like her followup TV role to be in a different vein: She wants to be on Downton Abbey, she tells USA Today. "I was raised in Ireland and England so I could pop into a part … Somebody like the Countess Markievicz (an Irish rebel), who they mentioned last season. Maybe I could make a guest appearance." Make it so, powers that be! As long as we're gonna slog through a fifth season of diminishing returns, we should at least get Anjelica Huston in there somehow. Maybe she can throw a drink at Thomas.
