George Clooney shows off dance skills in Money Monster promo
George Clooney has talked about putting on his dancing shoes in Money Monster.
In a feature for the film, which premieres for the first time on free-to-air television tonight on Sony Movie Channel at 9pm, Clooney and his co-stars talk about Clooney’s infamous dance moves in Money Monster.
Money Monster tells the story of a flamboyant financial advice show host, Lee Gates (Clooney), whose faulty on-air advice prompts an irate investor to take Gates and his crew hostage on live television.
Director Jodie Foster confirms the dance opening to Money Monster was entirely Clooney’s idea.
“There wasn’t really that much choreography,” says Clooney. “I just said ‘let’s go’. The girls were these great dancers and I said I was going to do some dumb dances and you follow.
“They were like ok, this is going to be really terrible, and it was.”
Co-star Julia Roberts, who plays Money Monster‘s producer Patty Fenn, is a fan, admitting: “I know he thinks he looks like a jackass and I’m not saying he doesn’t, but he’s quite a good dancer!”
