Sound Bite: George Clooney – why this movie
Well you know it’s a good script first and foremost, its always good to have something you can talk about, corporate corruption I think people, its something that everyone has a general understanding of and crocked lawyers I think people have general thoughts about and general suspicions about so that makes it easy to jump right in and start to mess with and I like that.

Sound Bite: George Clooney
Well yeah because the corporation obviously in general because the corporation made up of thousands of real people who aren’t corrupt but there’s usually, like if you watch, if you read that Enron book you realize its two or three idiots that thought they were smarter than everybody else and those two or three idiots are willing to do some really shady things. It requires a whistle blower somewhere in there.

Well as corporations get bigger and bigger and bigger and now there’s five people that own everything uhm it becomes harder and harder and I think we do feel that is impossible. (talks) It does need to be said and it does need to be said more often than that because we get to a place where we’ve moved the line of what is acceptable much further ahead than what was before we go ‘well they killed a few people but’ uhm I think its important to constantly have that discussion you know.

Sound Bite: George Clooney – gets political
I’ve been involved for quite sometime (talks) Well I was even before Boroco Bama I got in I had meetings and talks with them, he called me just before he announced. Uh I’m friends with him, I’m a fan of his I think he’s a leader and I haven’t seen a leader like that since Mario Como (talks) we got to move on, we actually, we have to stop this idea that we’re going to find everyone whose going to give us very easy, very sort of middle the road answers that are non committal all the way. The Democrats have this problem worse than the Republicans of finding ways of well there’s good and there’s bad you know we need people to stand up and say look guys here’s what were going to do, here’s my plan there’s going to be and give us a real hardcore serious plan, all the politicians including Boroc have fallen into that of now trying to play to the middle at some point you have to come out and say here’s what I’m going to do and you know you need, Kennedy in 1960 said we’re going to land a guy on the moon in 10 year, you need to have someone say 10 years from now were not going to have a car that runs on internal combustion engine, get to work boys. And watch how quickly we become that country that leads again you know.
