Thousands Line Up to Work with George Clooney
President Obama might want to enlist the services of George Clooney for his cabinet!
MSNBC reports that 2,100 people will be hired—albeit as short-term extras, where they’ll earn roughly $56.40 a day—for Clooney’s latest film, Up In the Air.
And apparently, a lot of people need the work; more than 14,000 people showed up at a St. Louis, Missouri, shopping mall looking to get cast as walk-ons.
Clooney, 47, stars in the the film as Ryan Bingham, an efficiency expert who looks to accomplish his two main goals in life: to accumulate one million frequent flier miles, and to land a job at a mysterious management company called MythTech.
Up in the Air is being directed by 31-year-old Jason Reitman, who previously helmed the 2007 indie smash Juno.
George recently finished work on the comedy Men Who Stare at Goats, which is due out in December 2009.
