Okay, not the headline we expected to write today, but we’re not mad at it?

Downton Abbey star Allen Leech, who plays Tom Branson, has revealed he would love a spin-off to follow Branson, when he was younger. This comes as the third film in the franchise has just premiered, and sights are set on what’s next for the series.

So, where does Niall Horan come into this you ask? Well Allen actually suggested that Niall plays the younger version of him in the possible spin-off!

“A spin-off, or we go back in time, and Niall Horan could play young Branson; everyone keeps saying we look alike,” he explained.

They do look like brothers to be fair…

The lads have joked about how much they look alike before.

Previously on Twitter, Niall let Allen know just how a like they looked after a waiter compared them. He wrote; โ€œwaiter just said to me โ€œdid anyone ever tell you that you look exactly like the guy from Downton Abbey?โ€

Also saying; โ€œItโ€™s gone beyond a joke nowโ€

Meanwhile Allen has joked that the resemblance is so strong Niall could be his child.

Joking while on American chat show, Watch What Happens Live, the Dubliner said; โ€œHeโ€™s my son.โ€

โ€œI had him really young. I had the choice to give him to the circus or a boy band, I chose a boy band. Heโ€™s done much better there because his backflips are terrible.โ€

Niall has already shown he has quite the acting bug, nailing skits on SNL and who could forget One Direction’s Best Song Ever video? IYKYK.

We’d love to see this from Niall, but we will have to wait and see what happens in the future.
