Clooney hires nephew for new film

The Oscar-winner is the son of renowned TV host Nick Clooney, the nephew of singer Rosemary Clooney, and his cousins are actors Miguel and Rafael Ferrer.

And the star is carrying on the tradition by handing his sister’s 14-year-old son Nick Zeidler the chance to appear in his latest film, The Ides of March, which stars Ryan Gosling, Marisa Tomei, Paul Giamatti and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

But Clooney didn’t treat the youngster to a huge part – Zeidler had to wear a sandwich board in one scene shot in Cincinnati on Thursday (10Feb11).
