George Clooney reunites with his ER castmates for Stars in the House event in aid of Waterkeeper Alliance

Two-time Oscar winner George Clooney will reunite with his ER castmates for Stars in the House’s Waterkeeper Alliance benefit, which airs on Earth Day.

The director-star of Midnight Sky – who turns 60 next month – scored two Emmy nods for his breakthrough role as pediatrician Dr. Doug Ross in NBC’s medical drama from 1994 to 1999.

Fans may forget that George – whose aunt was Rosemary Clooney – got his first appearance on 1980s sitcoms like The Facts of Life and The Golden Girls.
