Elizabeth Hurley wants George Clooney on The Royals!

Earlier this week, E! News sat down with the 50-year-old actress and her Royals co-stars to chat about the show's highly anticipated second season. When we asked Hurley which Hollywood hunk she wants to play Prince Liam and Princess Eleanor's real father on the hit E! series, she didn't hesitate for a second.

"George Clooney," Hurley revealed without missing a beat. "Who else could it be? I think George Clooney would be perfect. Why not? You'll have all the flashbacks to the scenes with the queen and George Clooney, which would be a wonderful addition to season three. I'm campaigning for it."

We are too!

Clooney isn't the only Hollywood hottie Hurley is dishing on. She also gushed about her ex Hugh Grant and the epic 23-year-old TBT photo she recently posted of them on Instagram.

"I found a shoebox crammed full of photographs—I've got a lot more to come—and they were just so enchanting. I thought it was such a sweet picture because I remember that so clearly and so I just snapped the original snap on my phone," the Brit beauty told us. "I just thought it was sweet. You know, he's godfather to my son, so he's in our lives a lot. He's my next-door neighbor too. He's a good friend. I thought it was sweet."

Hurley also said she wouldn't mind if Grant was cast as her former love interest on The Royals. "Forget George Clooney! What about Hugh Grant?" she laughed.

Watch the season two premiere of The Royals this Sunday, Nov. 15 at 10 p.m., only on E!
