Gosling bites his thumb at Clooney's on-set dress code.
George Clooney is stepping behind the camera again for Farragut North and he wants Ryan Gosling to be his leading man. Based on Howard Dean's 2004 campaign, Farragut North details the shady practices and backstabbings that take place in order for a candidate to get a nom. No stranger to nom-nom-noms, Venom-hopeful Philip Seymour Hoffman is on board as the boss of Gosling's political mastermind character.
Leonardo DiCaprio was once connected to the role, and then Chris Pine was expected to step in after bringing down the house in the play version. But in the end, it looks like it's Gosling's for the taking. No fair. He gets to be in a great movie AND Rachel McAdams. (Deadline)
Hollywood seems to have an obsession with assassins, and this teaser trailer for The American only further proves that point. George Clooney plays a soul-searching gun-for-hire hiding out in Italy for one last job. A last job he's of course being coerced into completing. There are pretty women (who can't be trusted), a priest (who can't help ease Clooney's suffering), and surprisingly a lack of alcohol. C'mon, an assassin who's NOT an alcoholic? I don't buy it, Hollywood. I bet we're going to see a bottle of Jim Beam in the full trailer or the pistol in my desk drawer isn't stained with orphan blood. The film is directed by Anton Corbijn, whose last film Control profiled Ian Curtis, the lead singer of Joy Division, who commited suicide. Soooo he does bummer movies. Check out the trailer after the jump. The American hits theaters September 7, 2010.

Director: Wes AndersonCast: George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Owen Wilson, Bill MurraySynopsis: Angry farmers, tired of sharing their chickens with a sly fox, look to get rid of their opponent and his family.
In Fantastic Mr. Fox, cinema auteur Wes Anderson has decided to take his uniquely composed wide shots and apply them to the world of stop motion animal puppets. He still couldn't part with at least one brother Wilson and Jason Schwartzman, but this time they merely provide the voices for their underground dwelling characters. It's sure to be one heck of a good twitchy, off-putting, imaginative caper with enough George Clooney charm to spare.
Up in the Air Co-Pilot Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailers An extended trailer for Jason Reitman's Up In The Air is now online and, sadly, it has nothing to do with Kevin Bacon scouting the Masai for kick-ass basketball players. But fear not, fans of slight racism, it does include George Clooney's tips for traveling. For instance, you should never get in a security line behind old people due to their love for hidden metals. The Asians on the other hand are your best option because of their efficient packing methods and penchant for slip-on shoes. God love them indeed. Click on these links.

The second trailer for Men Who Stare At Goats has arrived, and it's clearly evident in it that Clooney is the man. Plus he's got a finely groomed mustache, which brings back fond memories of his hilariously over the top performance in O Brother, Where Art Thou? I was excited to see this movie after the first trailer, and now I'm giddy. Yes, just like a school girl.
Though he's always been opposed, Larry David is finally caving and doing a Seinfeld reunion — on the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. The fictional reunion will be the through-line of season seven with the original cast all appearing as themselves. Recently at the TCA press tour, David told critics what they can expect to see of the reunion. "You won't see the entire show. You'll see parts of the show. You'll get an idea of what happened (to the 'Seinfeld' characters) 11 years later." The series returns on September 20th and I personally am very excited to see what happens if Kramer is locked in a room with Leon or Crazy Eyez Killah.
