|George Clooney at TIFF 2009|
Although we missed George Clooney at TIFF 2010, something tells me we'll be getting him back this September here in Toronto! With two hotly-tipped performances to promote, Clooney looks once again to be in Best Actor contention for the Oscars. He has two Films coming out later this year, The Descendants and The Ides of March. The former has him as a Man trying to reconnect with his two Daughters after his Wife suffers a boating accident. Directed by Sandra Oh's Ex Alexander Payne who brought us the brilliant Sideways, this also looks to be the big breakout role we've all been hoping for in Judy Greer who plays Elizabeth, his adulterous Wife in a Coma; Fox Searchlight releases.
The Ides of March looks to be a Best Picture contender with Clooney starring as a Man on the Presidential trail. Ryan Gosling playing a young Man who plays an integral part to the campaign, learning quickly all the corrupt things which go on behind-the-scenes. Gosling told Extra recently that Clooney is quite the Prankster, having sprayed his pants with an Evian Spray Bottle without even realizing it happened until the Silver Fox walked away.
Our Friends at Alliance Films in Canada still have no word on whether the Film will be premiering here, but we're crossing fingers and thinking it's likely a go!
