Bravo's Emmy nominated Inside the Actors Studio returns for its 18th season with star power as host James Lipton welcomes Golden Globe Award-winning actor George Clooney on Tuesday, January 31 at 7pm et/pt. In the two-hour event, Clooney courses through his life from his early days as Dr. Doug Ross on "ER" to his most recently acclaimed role as Matt King in The Descendants, for which he has just received an Oscar nomination.
A triple threat in the industry, Clooney has moved gracefully through various genres from comedy to drama in roles as varied as ER, Out of Sight, Oh, Brother Where Art Thou, The Perfect Storm, Oceans 11 and Michael Clayton. He garnered critical acclaim for his writing and directing talents with movies Good Night, and Good Luck and Ides of March, in which he also played a principal acting role. Clooney has twice been named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive, Entertainment Weekly's 50 Smartest People in Hollywood, and one of Time magazine's 50 Most Influential People in the World. He has been nominated for more than 100 awards, winning over 50 of them.
