Huckabees Video by Clooney?

Four days ago, we posted the video of director and King Diva David O. Russel's screaming like a little bitch tantrum on the set of "I Heart Huckabees." We mentioned that the video - what looks like the video assist feed from the main camera - had been rumored to exist and that "someone" posted it to YouTube.

Well now that someone may or may not have been George Clooney. Radar did some snooping and came up with the theory that George was pulling the strings of a master plan carried out by his sound man:

Clooney is currently at work on Leatherheads, a football comedy set in the 1920s that he's starring in and directing. Among the crew members listed on the film's IMDb page is sound mixer Edward Tise. The two last worked together on Clooney's Good Night and Good Luck, and, before that, on Three Kings.

He also served in the same capacity on—you guessed it—I Heart Huckabees. A message left for Tise at Leatherheads' production office hasn't been returned, but one Hollywood insider cautions that Clooney would have had a wide variety of accomplices to choose from: "When a director is like that, it makes the entire crew want to do things to him."

If this is true, you've got to hand it to George: he seems like a really down-to-earth kind of guy. He's not afraid to be the bad boy of Hollywood and piss off a few people. And for that, we get to see just how much of a brat a fairly-well-respected Director can be.
