4 Fun Things I Learned About George Clooney's Time on The Set of Tomorrowland| #TomorrowlandEvent

You may remember my post from our interview with George Clooney almost two weeks ago.  There were some things I couldn't share as I didn't want to spoil any of the Tomorrowland Movie with you.

George Clooney is just as funny unscripted than when he is following a script.

From the first moment, George Clooney walked into the room until the moment he left there was a ton of laughter during our interview. George liked to play pranks on set and included his co-stars Raffey Cassidy and Britt Robertson in his antics.  He also enjoyed teaching Raffey things that sometimes were probably not appropriate.

George Clooney had a few favorite parts while doing the movie.

When they did the truck scene where Raffey (Athena) is driving the truck, he said he was really impressed for her only being 12.  Of course when she wasn't looking at the road that was a bit unnerving, even though they were being towed.

His other favorite part was when Britt (Casey) had to drink the Coca Cola because she was drinking them so fast without thinking about how many takes they had to do.  Also when he had to feed Britt (Casey) the ‘powder'.  He just got a big kick out of those scenes.

The toughest part(s) for George Clooney while making the movie.

George seemed to touch on three ‘difficult' parts of filming the movie.

 (1) Wearing the harnesses were hard to work with and somewhat uncomfortable at times, (although he enjoyed flying). He  also said that the green screens were tricky to work with.
(2) When he had to let Athena (Raffey's character) go it proved very difficult like he was just dropping her.  He was thankful when they rescripted it so it wasn't so awful.
(3) George also felt at times that the line that was walked with Raffey's character tiptoed on the ‘dangerous side'.

Ideas that George Clooney felt were so cool while doing the movie.

George loved the idea of flying a jetpack.  He said how cool it would be if he landed in LAX and had to be somewhere by 4:30pm. Instead of having to get a ride, he could just jetpack to that location.

He always thought when he was a kid how neat it would be to live like the Jetsons.  To fly from place to place, although there are people that shouldn't be driving cars, let alone a plane or jetpack.

George also loved it when he walked up to Thomas Robinson (Young Frank Walker) and said, “You are playing me?” and Thomas Robinson said “Yup”.

Hi Becky,

I have not gone to a movie theater to see a movie in several years. But this past week, a friend at my health club invited me to join her to see Tomorrowland. So I saw the movie. It was fun reading your details about George Clooney, a behind the scenes look.
Warmly,
Dr. Erica
