Contrary to popular opinion, neither the sound man, Ed Tise, nor yours truly sent in the David O. Russell tape. I saw it when we were working on "Ocean's 12," and there have been quite a few copies traveling around town for the last couple of years. Any rumor that either of us put it on the internet is simply false.

And I'd offer a million bucks to anyone who would prove otherwise.

Your fan,

George Clooney

You're on, George! Readers with additional million-dollar tidbits, please send them to We promise we'll share.
