Clooney admitted the role would stretch him. The character is very complex with passions in all facets of the life of the character. He said he thought it would be the challenge of his career.
Apparently, he's hired a vocal coach, a business executive and a golf pro to help him nail the character.
"It's the role of a lifetime", said Clooney to Variety this morning. "It's not often the part of a true Renaissance Man comes along."
And we quite agree with him.
I for one think Clooney can pull it off. Luckily, he was born with good looks so he won't need any make-up to look the part.
