George Clooney has finally decided to leave the planet, giving men everywhere hope that they can one day take his place as the most charming man on earth. The actor is set to star in the upcoming film, Gravity, alongside Sandra Bullock, to be directed by Alfonso Cuaron.
Clooney replaces Robert Downey Jr. (the world’s second most charming man) in the role of a team leader of a space station. Bullock plays his counter, a mother, and they’re both placed as the sole survivors when the space station is destroyed by an asteroid’s debris field. Also, probably at some point in the film, they do it.
Anyway, currently Clooney is directing and starring in The Ides of March, an adaptation of the play by Beau Willimon. Ryan Gosling is co-starring and he is, of course, the world’s third most charming man.
