George Clooney Video!
First Episode Footage of Clooney on Facts of Life --
Long before George Clooney became America's favorite Baby Boomer male movie star, he earned his fame on television.
George Clooney won the role of George Burnett -- a hot but not so handy handy man on the then hit television show Facts of Life (to the delight of 1980s teenage and college age girls who had come of age watching the coming of age TV show).
Fans who catch episode reruns on cable might not even realize at first the character portrayed is him.
In the following video clip from circa 1985, Clooney first meets the girls and is hired as a building contractor to help them rebuild their business after a devastating fire.
Most memorable parts of the episode, sure to delight all die hard George Clooney fans?
- George Clooney looks so young and handsome, you can see why he rose to movie stardom.
- He was funny and had a charismatic smile and laughed with confidence even back then.
- Clooney had a way with the star celebs who had been on the show since the late 1970s -- you could see he held his own and absolutely charmed them.
- You get to see George Clooney dressed like a construction worker -- revealing bare arms in one scene.
- Beyond the work boots making Clooney look like a believable guy next door kind of man, he certainly showed that back in the day when guys looked hot in tight Levis (blue Jeans) that is was more than easy for him to look like a Macho man and turn ladies heads.
Least memorable parts of the episode -- or more appropriately stated the parts we'd most like to forget?
- Remembering when this Baby Boomer episode first aired for Gen X.
- The Mullet: Yes, fans... George Clooney had a full head of dark and silky curls back then -- all business in the front and gracing below his collar line in back.
