You’ve been waiting for the “Gorgeous George” Clooney to debut on this blog…haven’t you? Your wait ends:-) Here’s Mr. Impeccable!
Clooney shot to fame by portraying the character of Dr. Doug Ross, in the famous NBC series ER. (He returned to the ER series in March ’09.) He began his Hollywood career in “From Dusk till Dawn.” He worked in some other movies until he became the Batman (after Val Kimer and Michael Keaton – I haven’t seen the one with Michael Keaton…can’t imagine him as Batman!). Unfortunately “Batman and Robin” belied Clooney’s expectations. Another memorable film of his was “Three Kings“, a movie that I’d be happy to recommend.
Other famous movies that star Clooney are:
- The Perfect Storm
- Ocean’s Eleven (as Danny Ocean, followed by O12 and O13)
Around 2002, Clooney began testing the Directorial Waters. His famous directorial ventures are:
“Up in the Air” (2010) is his most recent release, in which he plays the role of Ryan Bingham.
On the personal front, Clooney seems to be highly risk-averse. He had a married stint of 4 years, after which he decided never to marry again.
Some other interesting Clooney bytes:
- Nick Name: Gorgeous George
In 1997, he was voted the best-dressed television star (Note the bow-tie.)
Until 2006, he owned a pet pig called Max. Upon his death in 2006, he was devastated and vowed never to adopt a pet pig again. (Another proof of his risk-averse nature. I wonder how brave a batman he made?) Here’s a news-byte that might interest those who believe in communicating with the spirits.
Nephew of Rosemary Clooney.
Those on facebook might be interested in starting a campaign against him. This is what he has to say about Facebook.
“I’d rather have a rectal examination on live TV by a fellow with cold hands than have a Facebook page!”
