Downton Abbey is getting a regular black character next season, but he won't be the first! According to this new Funny or Die video, Sean "Diddy" Combs was the first black character on the British drama. Watch as Diddy meets the Crawley family and their household staff, including Carson, who is not impressed, and Thomas, who is quite interested. Remember when you used to think Downton Abbey was called Downtown Abbey? Diddy still does.
