Before They Were Stars (2-for-1 Special): George Clooney and Jason Alexander on “E/R”

No, that’s not a misprint. I’m sure you know George Clooney shot to stardom while working on ER, but here’s a mind-boggling coincidence for you: did you know that ten years beforehand, he starred in another medical TV show called E/R? Clooney was only 23 years old when he joined the cast of this show, which aired in the fall of 1984, but was cancelled after one season. The big difference between this show and the hyphen-free ER was that this was a sitcom with a full-fledged laugh track. Also look for a young Jason Alexander in this clip, who had an early role as the hospital administrator.
