George Clooney was on Live With Regis and Kelly today to talk about his latest directorial effort The Ides of March. George premiered the movie last night in NYC with his costars Evan Rachel Wood, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Paul Giamatti, but Ryan Gosling wasn't on hand for the film's East Coast debut. He's been tied up in LA working on his next film, The Gangster Squad, in recent weeks. We chatted with George last night on the red carpet, where he talked about filming the political thriller in the Midwest and some of the odd jobs he worked before he was famous. Before making his way to the event last night, George stopped by the Time, Inc. offices for a live interview. George said he'd never join Twitter, joked about casting Ryan Gosling in his film because he was "cheaper" than other stars, and also shrugged off the idea of running for political office himself during the chat.
