Clooney and Co.

George Clooney sure does love his all-star casts. Maybe it's because he knows he's not a big enough name to open a movie all on his own, or maybe he just loves to get pie-faced with fellow gentlemen after a long day of shooting. The Ocean crew is perhaps the definitive all-star cast, and his latest starring vehicle, THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS, features its fair share of premier thespians as well.

In talks to star with Sir George are none other than Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges. The film, which is to be directed by Grant Heslov, centers on Bob Wilton (McGregor), a desperate reporter who stumbles upon the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady (Clooney), who claims to be a former secret U.S. military psychic soldier who was re¬activated post-9/11 in Iraq. The duo's travels through Iraq offers glimpses into the supposedly real secret Army unit tasked with creating soldiers with paranormal powers. Sounds neat.

Bridges will play Bill Django, the founder of the psychic soldier program and Lyn's mentor. Spacey will play Larry Hooper, a former psychic soldier who is running a prison camp in Iraq. The film sounds a little out there, but if there's one thing that Clooney has earned over the last few years, it's our trust. Let's face it. The dude has wicked taste.
