Since most of our readers are male, I am going to assume that you have never watched an episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. Apparently, she has been obsessed with getting George Clooney on the show since she moved into a new studio in Burbank on the same lot as the Oscar-winning actor. (Seriously, what’s up with lesbian daytime talk show hosts and their crushes on leading men? First it was Rosie O’Donnell and Tom Cruise, and now Ellen and Clooney.)
Calling on friends and co-stars of Clooney such as Brad Pitt and Noah Wylie didn’t help Ellen get her man (insert joke here), but Wylie did give her a useful suggestion: Clooney’s nuts for the Cincinnati Reds, so why not get some members of the old Big Red Machine to help you out. And it turns out that was exactly the hook that was needed, as MLB.com reports that Clooney taped an appearance on the show along with Hall of Famers Joe Morgan and Johnny Bench that is scheduled to air on Monday.
“Leatherheads” starring George Clooney, Renee Zellweger, and John Krasinski (The Office) will be released to the public on April 4th. Hollywood doesn’t formally recognize “Crappy Football Movie Connoisseurs,” but if they did, I’d pretty much be at the head of the class. I’ve seen “Varsity Blues” well over a hundred times, and I was the 7th person to officially say that “The Replacements” sucked. I believe my resume speaks for itself.
Pre-screening for “Leatherheads” took place earlier this week, and reviews for the film hover in positivity.
