Clooney Movie Films In Detroit With Many Local Extras

DETROIT (WWJ) – Lights! Camera! Action!  in Ann Arbor this afternoon. Hundreds of extras were involved in the shooting of a new film starring George Clooney. 

Jeff Bower, husband of WWJ Anchor Jayne Bower was one of the many extras and his wife expected a full report of the days activities.

“Jayne wanted all the details, “was he just as nice in person as he seems?” I mean, not only does the guy look great, he smells great,” laughs Jeff Bower.

The movie is titled “Ides of March”.  It features Clooney as a man running for President. 

“Jayne Bower, my wife, is George Clooney’s number one fan, so I can’t believe that it’s me that went down there to shoot this movie, I mean, if Jayne had been there she would have been catatonic,” says Jeff Bower.

Look for Jeff Bower as a member of the “press corp” in the film.

Several movies have scheduled to film in Michigan, read more about the status of movies in Michigan.
