George Clooney wants Chris Pine for ‘Farragut,’ but the actor wasn’t aware

HollywoodNews.com: Chris Pine was completely in the dark that George Clooney was eyeing him for a role in the feature adaptation of the play “Farragut North.”

The play was written by Democratic political operative Beau Willimon and it was recently reported that Clooney was eyeing to make the film with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti and Pine.

Pine had no clue he was being positioned for the film and learned the news from MTV during an interview for “Unstoppable.”

“I have, I mean, I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he told the outlet after they brought up the “Farragut North” deal.

MTV filled Pine in to which the actor responded “Wow! Um … that would be another dream come true.”
Pine had earlier told MTV that working with Denzel Washington and Ridley Scott on “Unstoppable” was exactly that.

“Farragut North” tells the story of a young presidential campaign wunderkind who employs shady tactics to position his incumbent against a rival senator.

“I love that part, I love the story,” said Pine, who played the lead role in a Geffen House production of “Farragut” last year. “I think it’s a wonderful, wonderful story about a really intelligent young guy who’s kind of hyper-articulate, and spinning a bunch of plates at once, that’s obviously hiding a lot of trauma and a lot of insecurity and a lot of hurt. And to work with George Clooney, that would be pretty f—ing awesome.”
