Letterman With George Clooney

George Clooney is an American movie actor, musician, director, author and philanthropist. He’s been the recipient of several Golden Globe awards and lots of Academy Awards, most notably for his portrayal of Alex Cross. In recent years, he’s been the topic of several critical reviews and has been nominated for Oscars eleven times. He currently ranks ninth among all actors of all time in terms of total number of Oscar awards received.

After studying acting at the University of London, Clooney went to study drama at the University of California, Los Angeles. There he met future wife Amalaya Clooney, who was then employed as an assistant director on the movie Napoleon Dynamite. After leaving the college, they worked together on the movie, winning the Oscar for it.

Following that success, Clooney decided to make his name more known by starring in certain well-received films. One of them was the Vanilla Sky, which did not do so well at the box office. But, it was a critical success on the way to winning him an additional Oscar for his second film. Together with the similarly themed Apartment Zero, this was the beginning of a long string of Oscar winning movies. The next film in his career was The Deerhunter, which was also well received by critics and won him a fourth Oscar for his work in it. Following these successes, other similar movies followed including Man on the Moon, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Bruce Almighty, and Signs and Stones.

As a director, Clooney has written or co-written the scripts for some of his movies. His first picture in this genre was Rainmaker. This was made by his friend, the late Charles Bronson. His next film to star him was A Few Good Men, which didn’t do so well at the box office, but was a hit in the viewer’s eye. The cash failed to flow into the movie’s coffers, however, and it wasn’t expected to do very well.

Following that, Clooney chose to focus on dramas instead of comedies, but he’d star in a couple of comedies, such as 1997’s Man on the Moon, which was directed by Steven Spielberg and throw him together with Ben Affleck. While the movie failed to perform really well at the box office, it was a beloved movie by those who watched it. He also featured in the 1998 movie Webster, which was nicely critically acclaimed. Following that, Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel was released, which starred Clooney as the title character.

Then he teamed up again with Spielberg for the movie Jurassic Park. This time, the movie did quite well at the box office, making him an additional Oscar nomination. Jurassic Park ranks as the highest grossing film of all time, and its success remains today. Other major budget franchise movies have followed in its footsteps, including Harry Potter and Star Wars. In fact, all these films were produced during the golden age of blockbuster filmmaking, and George Clooney has certainly had his hands in quite lots of memorable ones.

But, it was The Game that really defined what a George Clooney movie should be. The movie was directed by Clint Eastwood, and it was considered to be one of the best films of its time. It told the story of an aging retired athlete that tried to lead a normal life after being diagnosed with cancer. The movie featured prospective actors such as Jeff Bridges and Bill Murray.

Whichever film you prefer, chances are that you will find at least one picture from the illustrious career of George Clooney. His films will continue to be long remembered by generations of Americans. After his stint with Hollywood, Clooney goes on to star in many independent films, such as Seabiscuit and Labor Day. He would then turn his attention to movies directed by fellow Hollywood screenwriters, such as writer Paul Newman and director Carlito’s Way.
