George Timothy Clooney (born 1961) is an American actor, director, screenwriter and producer. The son of a broadcast journalist and nephew of singer Rosemary Clooney, George's acting career got off to a slow start, but he hit the bigtime when he was cast as Dr. Doug Ross on ''{{ER}}'', which earned him Emmy nominations and propelled him to stardom. He left the show after four seasons (relatively early on in its fifteen-year run, so much so that many of Clooney's younger fans don't know he was ever on it) to pursue a film career full-time.

This had gotten off to a [[OldShame rather poor start]] with the infamously bad ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', in which he was Batman; legend has it that Clooney will refund the ticket price of anyone who approaches him and says they saw the film. However, he quickly became a regular with Creator/TheCoenBrothers, appearing in such films of theirs as ''OBrotherWhereArtThou'' and ''IntolerableCruelty''; he likewise formed a partnership with StevenSoderbergh, which led to both some major blockbusters in the ''OceansEleven'' series (probably the film role that best sums up Clooney's screen persona), and some smaller serious dramas, such as ''Film/{{Solaris|2002}}''. As if this wasn't enough, he moved into directing, earning Oscar nominations for ''Film/GoodNightAndGoodLuck''; that same year he won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in ''{{Syriana}}''. Three further nominations for Best Actor followed, for ''MichaelClayton'', ''UpInTheAir'', and ''Film/TheDescendants''. In 2011, he also earned a sceond writing nomination for ''Film/TheIdesOfMarch'', all the while [[http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,2101425,00.html#disqus_thread using his spy satellites to build a case against Sudanese war criminals.]] In 2013, he won his second Oscar for co-producing BenAffleck's ''Film/{{Argo}}'', which won Best Picture.

On- and off-screen, George Clooney is recognized as a major [[SilverFox sex symbol]], and one of Hollywood's most famous bachelors. He is frequently cited as one of the world's sexiest men, and is compared to CaryGrant in his Old Hollywood style. Also known for his very vocal liberalism and his more general humanitarian work, which is the sort of thing anyone can get behind. The latter has led to him being dubbed the "class president" of Hollywood. He has so far avoided any major scandals and appears to be a genuinely normal, down-to-earth, and of course inconceivably handsome man. Women want him; men want to be him; [[EvenTheGuysWantHim men]] [[RunningGag want him too]]. ''[[TheAce What a guy...]]''
