Up in the Air, rising actor Jeff Witzke has his George Clooney moment
He’s got a cameo role in the new George Clooney film, Up in the Air. He’s also in the second season premiere of “The Mentalist” with Simon Baker. And he’s the co-writer, co-producer and co-star of a new web TV series pilot, “House Husbands.”
Actor Jeff Witzke’s been keeping enviable company out in Hollywood these days.
AUDIO EXCERPT: “I’ve worked with Jason Reitman all the way back to his his very first short film. He has written me a role in all his shorts. When he did his first feature, Thank You For Smoking, he said, ‘Jeff I want you to be the kidnapper.’ And he said, ‘I want you to be in Juno.’ And Up In The Air? The opportunity to spend the afternoon working with George Clooney was fantastic.”
If “Jeff Witzke” is not quite a household name in your home yet, that’s okay. You might remember him as the anti-smoking kidnapper in Thank You For Smoking or as the Hollywood baby talent agent on the f/x series “Nip/Tuck.” And if you’re still not sure who he is, we’ll cure that in the next 30 minutes.
