NEW YORK (AP) — George Clooney assimilated a Coen brothers and stars Tim Blake Nelson and John Turturro during a 15th anniversary screening of “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”

Clooney, who’d left a successful radio play during a time, spoke during a New York Film Festival of a event a film presented.

“I was an actor entrance off ‘E.R.’… so we couldn’t trust my luck,” Clooney told The Associated Press Tuesday.

Ethan Coen and his hermit Joel wrote a screenplay, formed on “The Odyssey” by Homer, and destined it. He says they didn’t know because a depression-era film about 3 transient convicts appealed to them, though it did.

The film was successful and critically acclaimed, though a soundtrack was a pound hit. It sole 8 million albums, and warranted a Grammy for Album of a Year.


This story has been corrected to contend that a Coen brothers both wrote a screenplay and destined a movie.
