"THE DESCENDANTS" - GEORGE CLOONEY
TORONTO (AP) -- George Clooney has no kids, but that doesn't mean he can't play a father in "The Descendants." After all, he says, "You don't have to shoot heroin to play a heroin addict." Clooney says he actually enjoyed playing the father of two girls in the movie, especially, he says, since he got to "give them away at the end." The movie is directed by Alexander Payne. Clooney would've worked with him before, but Thomas Haden Church beat him out for a role in "Sideways" that earned him an Oscar nomination. Clooney thanked Church for being busy this time. "The Descendants" opens today.
