Chicago premiere for O13
  • A charity premiere of Ocean's Thirteen will be held in Chicago on 7 June, and Oprah may attend. Details from two articles at the Chicago Sun-Times.

    'Ocean's Thirteen' gala here

    None of "Ocean's Thirteen" was filmed in Chicago, but several of the movie's stars -- including Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Don Cheadle and Matt Damon -- are expected here June 7 for the film's premiere, the Sun-Times has learned.

    Vanity Fair magazine and its high-profile editor Graydon Carter are hosting the event, hoping to raise money for the International Rescue Committee, which aids victims of global crises.

    It's a favorite cause of Clooney, who has traveled to Darfur to raise awareness of the crisis in war-torn Sudan. The money raised at the Chicago premiere is to go to a new International Rescue Committee arm focused on aid to Darfur -- the Not On Your Watch Foundation, established by "Ocean's" producer Jerry Weintraub.

    The "Ocean's Thirteen" evening will include a premiere of the movie, shown at the AMC River East 21 multiplex, followed by a star-studded after-party at the new Room 21 restaurant and nightclub, set to open at 2100 S. Wabash. Tickets for the post-party alone will start at $500 a person.

    The second report:

    Star gazing: Sneed hears Oprah may join the gaggle of actors -- which include George Clooney, Don Cheadle, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ellen Barkin, and Al Pacino -- at the June 7 Chicago premiere of "Ocean's Thirteen." Word is Oprah has a cameo role in the film.

    Actor's Studio

    I finally got to see the Actor's Studio interview via the link Felicity supplied. Very interesting. I wonder who he was referring to when he was talking about bad acting. I think I have an idea. Jan

    So many suspects. And that was months before the least deserving person got the nomination for The Departed.

    We're thinking along the same lines then! But then there was more than one snarling actor in that movie. Jan
