George Clooney got to work with Ryan Gosling and Evan Rachel Wood on their movie The Ides of March yesterday in Cincinnati, OH. The boys teamed up earlier this week for a few scenes before Evan Rachel joined them, and George also had some special guests on the set — his parents! George is directing and starring in the political thriller, though the subject matter hasn't affected his plans to never run for office. He and Ryan have been focusing on the project in the Midwest, and it remains to be seen if they'll make a trip to LA for this weekend's Independent Spirit Awards and Oscars. The Academy didn't recognize Ryan with a nod for his acting this year, but his good friend and Blue Valentine costar Michelle Williams is up for best actress at Sunday's big show.
