Well this is interesting. On the heels of the rather odd news that lifetime bachelor George Clooney was suddenly engaged to a lawyer, there’s a rumor floating that he’s readying himself to run for governor. While it fits nicely with his turn toward the “serious” step of getting married (at Downton Abbey, no less), I’m not sure exactly how reliable this rumor is since it comes from the United States’ Daily Mail equivalent. But compared to most of the rumors we hear, it’s pretty believable, right?
According to a source, “Democrats are looking for the perfect successor to [current California governor Jerry Brown], and George is interested. He has it all: He’s a handsome movie star with a social conscience who has used his fame for human-rights causes.”
