George Clooney Supports Derby County

11 May 2015 4:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

George Clooney is a Derby County Fc fan.

The 54-year-old actor is currently working on thriller movie, ‘Money Monster’, and has garnered a keen interest in the football team after spending time with co-star Jack O’Connell who is constantly watching the matches.

A friend of Jack’s explained: “Wherever Jack is in the world he is tuning into Derby County matches and he is a vocal supporter so inevitably Clooney became interested in Jack’s football moods.”

However, the ‘Gravity’ star – who married lawyer Amal Clooney last year – has been less than impressed by the team, nicknamed the Rams, due to an unfortunate losing streak which has left Jack, 24, feeling “miserable”.

The source told The Sun Newspaper: “He’s watched a few games but he’s not exactly picked a great time to come on board — the results have been miserable and Jack even more so.”

Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months .   December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters.  And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you.  Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds.
