George Clooney Shows His B-Ball Skillz For Amnesty International

Don’t mess with George Clooney and a basketball. The director/actor has long enjoyed playing the sport and never misses an opportunity to play a few games.

He can also win a few bets.

Earlier this month, after principal shooting for Leatherheads (which George directed) completed, co-star (and star of The Office) John Krasinski challenged the older Clooney to a friendly game — with $1K on the line. From the article,

“The 46-year-old Clooney says, ‘I love him, but the fun part is that he talked shit. The first day on the set he’s like, ‘I play basketball’ and I was like, ‘I play a little too.’ He looks at me and goes, ‘I’ll kick your ass.’ And I was like, ‘Alright, whatever.’ And he’s like, ‘OK, let’s make it $1,000 then.’

‘So for the entire shoot we’ve been talking about this bet. We haven’t played, the whole shoot. And (on the last day of shooting) we played. And I beat him 11-8! I was on cloud nine. I was wiping my forehead with $100 bills going, ‘Whooo, is it hot in here?'”

Ha. Nice shot, George. Check out this video below that was created for Amnesty International’s “Make Some Noise” campaign. I don’t think I’ll be challenging this guy to a game of HORSE anytime soon….
