“In all fairness, he outbid me on 阿尔戈,” Pitt told Vulture of the 2012 movie starring and directed by 本·阿弗莱克, which Clooney produced. “It can get competitive. We do naturally have a lot of the same tastes and interests.”
为了 招标酒吧, Clooney also reunited with Affleck, whom he directed in the movie.
“He’s such a good actor, 首先也是最重要的, and obviously he’s a wonderful director,” Clooney said of working with Affleck. “We’re friends and we trust each other so it was really easy. There wasn’t any pushing or pulling. Just show up and get the job done.”
The film tells the coming-of-age story of a fatherless boy, J.R. (Daniel Ranieri) who grows into a young man (泰伊·谢里丹) under the tutelage of his Uncle Charlie (阿弗莱克).
招标酒吧 will be in theaters nationwide on Dec. 22 and on Amazon Prime Video on Jan. 7.
