George Clooney and friend injured in NJ motorcycle accident and Video Clips

Published by at 9:25 am under News

LOS ANGELES—George Clooney suffered a broken rib and road rash in New Jersey on Friday when a car collided with the motorcycle he was riding, the actor’s spokesman said.The 46-year-old actor was treated at Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen, N.J., and released, publicist Stan Rosenfield said.

Clooney’s passenger, Sarah Larson, suffered a broken foot.

“He’s doing fine,” Rosenfield said. “He has a broken rib, it’s very painful and it’ll take a long time to heal.”

Clooney’s latest film, “Michael Clayton,” will be released next month.

Tons of new photos on the set of Burn After Reading. Some were credited as being taken today.

I have video clips to add as well so be watching for those. I really don’t have much time to devote to the site at the moment. :-(

Thanks to those who have been sending me news, etc. Continue to do so. I know there are a lot of magazines I’m missing so those would be very much appreciated.

Here’s Another Photo from Clooney’s ‘Leatherheads’

 

USA Today has unveiled another photo from Leatherheads; George Clooney’s third directorial outing, and his first attempt at a comedy. I was about to claim that this is the first Leatherheads pic to hit the net, but I don’t believe it is. On IMDb, they already have up an additional five photos of guys clowning around in those old school football uniforms from back in the early days of the sport. And that’s exactly what Leatherheads is about: In the film, Clooney plays the coach of a “wannabee pro football team in the 1920s.” In an attempt to add some legitimacy to his team, the coach decides to try to recruit a World War I hero (John Krasinski) as his star player. Problems arise when both men fall head over heels for a pretty journalist (Renée Zellweger) who’s out to expose the star as a fraud.

The photo above is the first to feature all three principal cast members (Clooney, Krasinski, and Zellweger), as they sit around a table and discuss whatever. Ah, but someone or something walks in the door — at which point all three look up. I’m not at all worried about Clooney pulling off comedy; I’m sure his work on a couple quirky Coen Bros. flicks certainly helped the man get a feel for tone. I am worried, however, about John Krasinski as a bankable big-screen star. The guy was a total bore in the recently-released License to Wed, and as wonderful as The Office is, his character on that show isn’t all too exciting either. I’ll be curious to see what Clooney can get out of him this time around, as I’m sure his lead role in this film will help dictate just how big Krasinski will become. Your thoughts? Leatherheads is due to blocking its way into theaters this December.
