Clooney, Zellweger to promote movie in N.C.

"The Facts of Life" aside, George Clooney typically doesn't do bad projects. So I'm giving "Leatherheads" the benefit of the doubt.

The movie, about an early-20th century football team, was filmed in Greensboro, Salisbury and other parts of the Carolinas, opens April 14. Clooney, along with co-star Renee Zellweger, will sally forth to the "Old North State" to promote the film.

The Charlotte Observer reported Tuesday that Clooney, who directed and stars in the movie, and Zellweger will be in Salisbury on March 26 and in Greenville, S.C., the next day.

"In Salisbury, Clooney and Zellweger will appear about 11 a.m. at the Historic Salisbury Station as part of what they're calling the 'Whistle Stop Express.' In Greenville, S.C., they'll appear about 11 a.m. at The Westin Poinsett Hotel," says the Greensboro News & Record.

I think this movie looks great to me. It's a comedy that also has Jim from "The Office."

I've heard that the trailers (the ones I haven't seen) are pretty good, though the ONE I saw looked kinda silly.

Update: Lotsa folks came out to see the big starts the other day.

I like this part ...
"Salisbury's Mary Turner arrived at the depot about 9 a.m. with her grandson, 2-year-old Jamir Turner, in tow.

"Like the Medlins, Turner said she was a longtime Clooney fan. 'I go all the way back to ER,' she said."

What about those of us that go all the way back to "The Facts of Life"?
