George Clooney has sworn revenge against pal Matt Damon - after his OCEAN’S ELEVEN co-star joked to a foreign reporter the ageing hunk was set to marry his gay partner.
The Bourne Identity actor recently admitted he fuelled gossip Clooney was secretly in love with another man and that the couple planned to marry.
He told reporters at a press conference for the Venice Film Festival earlier this week (ends13Sep09), “Brad Pitt was there (Venice) doing interviews for Inglorious Basterds and I guess people had been asking him, ‘When are you and Angelina Jolie going to get married?’ and he finally just said, ‘Me and Angelina will marry when George Clooney marries his boyfriend!’ “The thing is, you do that in America and they just laugh; you do that overseas and I guess something gets lost in translation, so at eight in the morning, I’m doing interviews and this Italian journalist comes to me and says, ‘Matt, is it true what Brad say (sic)?’ I had no idea what he was talking about so I just said, ‘Of course, yeah.’

Thai police said on Monday that the cause of U.S. actor David Carradine’s death in a Bangkok hotel room would not be known until they had the results of the autopsy and toxicology tests in a month’s time.
The police refused to give further details about their investigation into the 72-year-old actor’s mysterious death, amid intense media speculation about causes ranging from suicide to murder via accidental autoerotic asphyxiation.
“We are still investigating but we will not make any assumptions about his death until we have gathered all the facts,” the deputy Bangkok police chief, Lieutenant-General Amnoy Nimmino, told a news conference. Read more of this post

TimesOnline have an article on the filming of the 007 Quantum Of Solace in northern Italy, where in the space of a week, 3 accidents were recorded.
- The destruction of 007′s Aston Martin by a stuntman which skidded off a wet road, smashed through a guardrail and ended up in a lake.
- Another stutman man suffered head injuries during shooting of a car chase when he crashed an Alfa Romeo and
- Two stuntmen badly injured during filming of a chase scence involving a lorry and a car.
Who said shooting action scences can’t be dangerous? Oh by the way a bystander suffered a heart attack when he stopped by to watch the filming. Now that is weird.

BBC News has an article on Daniel Craig stuntman losing control of his vehicle which ended up in a lake while filming Craig’s next movie “Quantum Of Solace”.
Not sure if I like this new James Bond. Besides the blond hair I still have to get use to his gritty, hard lined, image. I always heard about 007/James Bond but really got into it when Pierce Bronson was cast as an 007 agent. And now comes this guy in Casino Royale. I saw a documentary on past 007 films and it seems that the franchise had a basic image for Bond in the movies. So what up with this one?. Hmmm. I’ll be looking forward to his next James Bond film and see if the producers will be sticking to his dark side again.
