George Clooney Is the Spice of Life

Variety loves George Clooney’s new movie, Up In the Air.

Clooney has scarcely ever been more magnetic onscreen than he is here as Ryan Bingham, a gun-for-hire who specializes in the dirty work some corporate bosses don’t like to do themselves, firing employees.

…Impeccably groomed and with a ready answer to almost any remark anyone can throw at him, Clooney owns his role in the way first-rate film stars can.

I’m there. You have to love Clooney owning a role. That dude can “own” a mediocre movie right into an Oscar nominee. (Yes, I mean Michael Clayton.)

Alas, Up In the Air won’t be out until December.
