I have great respect for George Clooney. As an actor and as a director. Say what you will but old George really knows how to pick them. The likes of Syriana, Good night, and Good luck, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Solaris, Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, hell even Ocean’s 11 was fun to watch. I always regarded George as someone who used his fame in a such a great way picking projects that were all so bloody good it is unbelievable. It does take a lot of talent, brains and creativity to shift through the piles of shite in Hollywood and find real gems.
Recently I have read an article on Digital Spy and I found myself disagreeing with his statement. Clooney said “There is a strange pecking order among actors. Theatre actors look down on film actors, who look down on TV actors. Thank God for reality shows, or we wouldn’t have anybody to look down on.”
