Heartthrob and former star of massive hit TV series
, Clooney graduated to movies in the early ‘90s after having appeared in a handful of B-movie horrors throughout the ‘80s.
From Dusk Till Dawn
challenged his cleancut image, and Clooney somehow weathered the travesty that was 1997’s
Batman & Robin
with minimal bruising (though co-stars Chris O’Donnell and Alicia Silverstone were left in the dirt).
Now, Clooney favours high profile dramas more than anything.
Clooney made his directorial debut with 2002’s impressive
Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind
, which pretty much set the mould for his other forays behind the camera.
Namely slick, polished framing and a collection of A-list playmates. His next film,
The Ides Of March
, is due out in October 2011.
