AT THE SAME TIME!
Oh Jesus, my heart. My heart is beating SO FAST right now.
Rumors have been swirling for awhile that George Clooney might be coming to Duluth to promote his new movie "Leatherheads." Turns out the rumor is true, and it gets better: costar Renee Zellweger is coming, too.Don't worry, as you can see protective measures are being taken so that only credentialed media may gaze directly upon Clooney and Zellweger. Right now, the region's reporters are clambering for press passes as some sort of meager reward for their long hours of low paid professional labor. If you happen to be a public official looking to violate the oath of your office, you have free reign anytime between now and Monday.
The duo will be at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in the Depot for a press conference on Monday.
Unfortunately for stargazers, the event is only open to credentialed members of the media.
Duluth will be the first stop on the film's four-city "Whistle Stop Express" tour. Other stops include Maysville, Ky.; Salisbury, N.C., and Greenville, S.C.
I am posting a new poll about this topic on the right column. Join in!
Movie stars George Clooney and Renee Zellweger will appear in at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth on Monday, March 24. What will be the topic of the first amusing ice-breaking comment uttered by a famous person?
- The weather (cold)
- Something funny about the trains
- The primitave wardrobes of the press corps
- No talk, just skin
