George Clooney was born in Lexington, Kentucky, and raised in Augusta.
George started work at age five, on his father's talk show, The Nick Clooney Show. He returned to acting at the relatively late age of twenty-one, after his tryout for a Cincinnati Reds center-fielder slot didn't pan out.
With the casual self-confidence of one born into a showbiz family, Clooney moved to Los Angeles, where he landed his first professional gig in a stereo
commercial. Clooney slogged through some fifteen dead-end pilots and in a number of undemanding series
roles-including stints on the terminal sitcom E/R (as a hospital intern), The Facts of Life (as a carpenter), Roseanne (as Roseanne's womanizing boss), Sunset Beat (as a detective), Baby Talk (as a construction worker), Bodies of Evidence (as a detective), and Sisters (again as a detective)--before his gurney rolled in.
Michael Crichton's E.R. ! The show that upgraded Clooney from "world's richest unknown actor" to world's latest media darling.
In 1996 he appeared as a dashing robber/vampire slayer named Seth Gecko. Quentin Tarantino's From Dusk Till Dawn gave him an even higher profile in Hollywood. If you are interested in his movies please visit his
filmography. Have you seen 'The Perfect Storm' were he plays Captain Billy Tyne ? He is fantastic ! We are waiting to see his next big project - 'Ocean's Eleven' in the year 2001.
