The Oscar winner gets candid about his return to TV, working with younger actors and the possibility of an Er Reboot.
It’s been nearly 20 years since George Clooney left the small screen behind, exiting the long-running medical drama ER and eventually becoming one of the biggest names in film. But on May 17, the acting legend will make his highly anticipated return to television in the Hulu miniseries Catch-22. “It’s six episodes — it was fun,” George says of the project, which he also produces and directs. “[For me], it’s not about the medium.
