George's most embarrassing roles

Post by Katiedot on Sat Jan 28 2012, 11:58

Oooh, I haven't done a poll in ages. So, read the below and then vote on which of the mentioned films are the most embarrassing roles for George. You only get to vote for one and it doesn't matter whether you've seen the film or not:

From yahoo movies

George Clooney is quite rightly up for a Best Actor award at this year’s Oscars for his performance in top-notch family drama ‘The Descendants’, but the silver fox hasn’t always appeared in such classy projects.

We scraped the bottom of his acting barrel to find some of the roles he’d rather you forgot. Strangely enough, none of them made the Academy’s shortlist…

Grizzly II: The Concert
Sadly what would have been Clooney’s cinema debut was canned mid-production. A shame, as the plot revolved around a giant grizzly bear that attacks a rock concert in a National Park.

Clooney’s best moment sees him next to a campfire, seducing a youthful Laura Dern whilst listening to Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’. Suddenly he is mauled by a bear. Painful… in more ways than one.

Return to Horror High
The Cloon followed that up with another shocking shocker. He played (appropriately enough) a wannabe actor starring in a low budget movie. His character, Oliver, gets murdered in a closet whilst following a dripping trail of blood. One positive; his awe-inspiring bouffant ‘do.

Return of the Killer Tomatoes
Clooney’s next embarrassing effort is as absurd as it sounds. A mad professor concocts a swarm of killer tomatoes that are even nastier than the last batch thanks to their ability to take on human form. Currently rated at 0% on review site Rotten Tomatoes (oh the irony).

The Harvest
Just two years before Clooney made it big in ‘ER’ he starred in little-known film ‘The Harvest’. His character is credited as simply ‘Lip Syncing Transvestite’, and he fleetingly appears in lip stick and a crop top. At this point he was not considered a heartthrob.

Batman and Robin
Clooney’s most notable attempt at career suicide was this horrifying 1997 interpretation of the ‘Batman’ franchise. Highlights included those infamous ‘bat-nipples’ and a scene where Batman and Robin surf through the air on the doors of a rocket shouting “Cowabunga”. Clooney said later, “well I think we killed that franchise”. Chris O’Donnell apologised in his own way by never being seen in a mainstream movie again.

Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over
Six years after his laughable ‘Batman’ outing, it seemed George still hadn’t learnt his lesson, and popped up in ‘Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over’. Admittedly his role was fairly small, playing Antonio Banderas and his family’s boss, but it’s not really clear why the by-now-successful star signed up for this slightly depressing family sequel.

Nespresso adverts
Gorgeous George has become synonymous with coffee brand Nespresso - having fronted their ad campaigns, seemingly, since the dawn of time. Although the promo videos have clearly been a big win for the marketing department, Clooney’s rep has taken a bit of beating.

The worst ad sees Cloon go to heaven and tell god (played by John Malkovich… don’t ask) that to return to earth he’d rather trade in his Porsche and/or luxury ...

Katie, I did not vote but I think the most embarrassing role was in "Batman and Robin" because he was already rich and famous, was a role he could not refuse. Grizzly, Return to Horror High and the harvest is foilm Rhe did when he was not famous and if she wanted to work in the film had to accept what they proposed: There had to eat!

I went with Grizzly, because it also starred Kelly Preston and Charlie Sheen. I did not know about the bear mauling before I voted, and now I want to vote for it twice. Very Happy

I don't think Batman was one of his brightest moments, but I don't think it's anywhere near the level of awful that these other movies were. And he made a hell of a Bruce Wayne. HOTT! Wink

Missa
Clooney-love. And they said it wouldn't last
