'GENIUS' SEASON 2 TRAILER WITH ANTONIO BANDERAS AS PABLO PICASSO! GEORGE CLOONEY TO LEAD HULU'S WW2 EPIC SERIES 'CATCH 22'

  GEORGE CLOONEY TO
LEAD 'CATCH 22' WW2 SERIES
It will be a six episode mini series
Two period set series for you today. 'Deadline' reports that George Clooney will topline Hulu's new WW2 series CATCH 22 based on Joseph Heller's book. Set in Italy during World War II, it is the story of the incomparable, artful dodger Yossarian, a bombardier for the U.S. Air Force, which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. If Yossarian makes any attempt to avoid the perilous missions he’s assigned, he’ll be in violation of CATCH 22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule which specified that people who were crazy were not obliged to fly missions, but anyone who applied to stop flying was showing a rational concern for his safety and was, therefore, sane and had to fly.

  1. "Picasso" looks good -- have the series marked down in my calendar to watch! As far as "Catch-22" goes, I've never been able to plow through the book or sit through the original movie -- so who knows, maybe the remake will better?

    3. I always thought he was average looking :) He started getting on my nerves after acting like a silly amateur next to Cate Blanchett's Oscar worthy performance in Good German, it was offensive watching him ruin her outstanding scenes with his dilettante acting.

  2. Picasso looks far more interesting than Genius, judging from the trailer. I'll be making Jason watch this one with me, though he says he has no interest in seeing it.

    4. Sometimes I think that's best. I look at my mom and think she had the right idea living alone without having anyone to answer to. Don't get me wrong, I do love having Jason around, but there are days when running him over with my car sounds appealing too lol
