It's funny, I met him, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich and Frances McDormand while they were filming around NY, he didn't seem all that bright.

WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- George Clooney and his companion were injured on Friday when their motorcycle collided with a car on a narrow road across the Hudson River from New York City.

Clooney suffered a broken rib and scrapes while his passenger, Sarah Larson, broke her foot in the 3:30 p.m. collision. The two were treated at Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen and released, Clooney's spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, said.
``He's doing fine,'' Rosenfield said. ``He has a broken rib, it's very painful and it'll take a long time to heal.''

Clooney and Larson were traveling north on Boulevard East and sped up to pass on the right a 1999 Mazda Millenia that was preparing to make a right turn, said Weehawken police Sgt. Sean Kelly. Both were wearing helmets.

It wasn't known whether the Mazda's driver, whose identity was not immediately released, used a turn signal, Kelly said. The accident was under investigation.

``It's a he-said, she-said right now, but you can't pass on the right in Weehawken or anywhere in Jersey,'' Kelly said.
Rosenfield said the accident occurred when the vehicle signaled a left-hand turn, but turned right and struck Clooney's motorcycle.

``The car signaled left. George was riding to the right. The driver decided to make an abrupt right turn and clipped George,'' Rosenfield said.

The 46-year-old actor was in the New York area to film the dark comedy ``Burn After Reading,'' co-starring Brad Pitt, John Malkovich and Frances McDormand.

Clooney's recovery shouldn't interrupt the production's schedule, Rosenfield said.

Clooney's latest film, ``Michael Clayton,'' will be released next month. He and Larson have been spotted together at several film festivals and movie premieres in recent weeks.

I'm thinking of maybe taking a day off to show him around the city.
looks like we have a possibility of meeting Chris 3 different times. he has a 3 hour layover in Newark when he flies into the states, some point during his trip and then he has a 7 hour (ouch) layover in Newark on the outbound flight.

any suggestions for breakfast close to the newark airport?

I know a few places, will have to check if they are open during those hours, most of the places I know of are in Ironbound, and since they cater to truckers Im sure there will be one or two open, if not there are plenty of diners. Also will he be allowed out of the airport during his layover? I'm down.

Here is where the trouble starts, I'm on a serious time budget. I get off the plane in Newark at midnight. I have to get over to the 400 block of east 77 street for as early in the am as possible and get the paperwork done, sent to the border and get out of the city. I only have 4 days to cover 4000 kilometers and a border crossing to get back home. Any ADVers out there that have a couch I can crash on close to the area I need to be in?
I'd love to see a bit of your city, especially since I'm a firefighter up here in Edmonton Alberta but I don't think I'm going to have the time. Barring that possibilty can anyone suggest a hotel close to where I need to be thats not going to cost me an arm and a leg?
Thanks for any help you can provide
Rob

Edit
Ive been reading your thread and I've got to say it sounds like I'm gonna need an escort out of the city too. ;)
Welcome to NY

Your in good hands with Tenga. John, if you need Rob picked up from Newark gimme a ring, either you or Rob can PM me for my #
