Features Interview With George Clooney On Friday, October 7 At 10:30 PM ET/PT On AMC

NEW YORK, NY, OCTOBER 4, 2005 - AMC's critically-acclaimed new series MOVIES 101 WITH PROFESSOR RICHARD BROWN features an interview with actor George Clooney on Friday, October 7 at 10:30 PM ET/PT. In this half-hour, Clooney speaks about the art and craft of directing film and television. His current directing project, "Good Night, And Good Luck" which he co-wrote, directed and co-stars, opens on Friday.

Clooney on "Good Night, And Good Luck:" "To me, this is a very simple story -. It was about five episodes of television that took on McCarthy in 1953 and 1954 and literally changed America. Literally overnight because - everyone thought that McCarthy was the majority and Murrow came out on television, it was the first real test of television and he was the most trusted man in America."

Clooney on early career aspirations: "I thought I was going to be a professional baseball player. I only lacked...skill. It's the only thing that stopped me from playing professionally. If you think about it, I had everything else - I had good hair - I had a really fantastic mitt..."

Legions of New York City movie fans have consistently packed Professor Richard Brown's "MOVIES 101" adult education class.
