Best Actor: George Clooney

The 2012 Oscars are fast upon us! Among the Best Actor hopefuls is George Clooney, nominated for his role in The Descendants—his third Best Actor nomination. When we interviewed Clooney for our October 2005 issue, he talked a little bit about the responsabilities of an actor:

But I do have a responsibility, and I have to sort of take that in and say, “I’m going to try and do better.”
