George will play Col. Cathcart in his first small-screen role since NBC’s ER.

The show will be produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content, but does not yet have a network. It will be shopped around in December, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Catch-22 was first adapted as a feature film in 1970.

    nobody fails upwards like george clooney. he’s had bomb after bomb and they still let him make whatever he wants. meanwhile, women and minorities are fighting for even one chance, and if it bombs they never get a chance again. “oh lord, give me the confidence of a mediocre white man”

    Clooney is just meh these days. No good movies, ever. Plus, what were those comments about Harvey Weinstein? He said he “heard” that women slept with Harvey but stayed out of it bc of what it would mean about them if they were sleeping their way to the top? Sorry, he knew. Knowing and not doing equals complicit.

    He definitely knew what was going on. Weinstein had involvement with Clooney’s movies and it would be really strange to claim he only “heard” about things when many have come out and said that many celebrities knew what was going on. He just stayed out of it, like all the others. Now he’s claiming he’s “disgusted” and all that jazz. Whatever. He benefited from his association with Harvey and I guess that was all that was important to him.

    Grotesque UGLY Amal Alamuddin is no Clooney. Just a non-entity overhyped loser. Key to the sham “marriage” is her money laundering arms dealer family like uncle Ziad Takieddine. They funnel millions through Clooney front. In exchange they got fame.
    There are NO Clooney twins. Nor was equine Amal ever pregnant. Wore padding until April then hid from public. Stories written in media outlets are by delusional Baria Alamuddin the mother of equine Amal who is also her PR. The PR network hacks are Five Eyes intel cyber operatives.

    Ugly Amal Alamuddin’s delusional Islamist Arab peasant mother Baria Alamuddin has been frantically trying to coerce & bribe Baroness Helena Kennedy QC by telling her she’ll donate millions of (arms dealer money laundering) to Baroness Kennedy’s Oxford University Trust as a charitable contribution IF she nominates grotesque ugly Amal Alamuddin as a House of Lords peer. Baroness Kennedy doesn’t accept bribes. She didn’t even go to the sham wedding which was all paid by money-laundering arms dealer Arab scum family of ugly Amal. Her uncle is notorious arms dealer Ziad Takieddine. Google him.
    House of Lords peers don’t unanimously welcome unworthy criminal lowlife scum. Overhyped through bribed publicity.
    Clooney’s marriage to beastly UGLY Amal Alamuddin is a sham. He never has even slept with her & despisrs her. Apparently her real boyfriend is some hotel owner. Just as hideous as she is. NO CLOONEY TWINS EXIST.
    George Clooney’s public profile was destroyed by association to a grotesque ugly, delusional overhyped loser.

    Hey lurkerette aka Alsomart -George still doesn’t know and nor does he care that you exist. Please go visit your psychiatrist asap. You desperately need to have your multiple personalities put back where they belong.
