George Clooney is the highest-paid actor in the world, despite not making a movie since 2016

Forbes’ annual rankings of the highest-paid actors and actresses are always at least somewhat controversial, if only because a lot of these people do not deserve this much money, but last year’s lists were particularly noteworthy for the fact that 14 actors (including top-earner Mark Wahlberg) made more money than the…

Kyle Chandler to bring that old Coach Taylor charm to the bureaucratic horrors of Catch-22

Ensuring that, when the madness of George Clooney’s Hulu version of Catch-22 finally arrives, it’ll at least be in the soothing cadences of good old Coach Taylor, Deadline reports that Kyle Chandler is taking over Clooney’s part in the upcoming TV adaptation of Joseph Heller’s classic novel.

George Clooney gave his best friends $1 million, but he seems to have forgotten us

Everybody already loves George Clooney, because he’s handsome and charming and did a very good job playing Batman (no matter what any jerks say), but it turns out that he’s actually a very generous friend with a penchant for giving fantastic gifts.

Suburbicon’s awkward medley proves that George Clooney is no Coen brother

C

George Clooney’s Suburbicon is a mishmash: two incompatible movies—one archly cynical, the other painfully sincere—wedged uncomfortably together.
