Robert Rodriguez Cast 'Man's Man' Clooney

Movie director ROBERT RODRIGUEZ immediately cast GEORGE CLOONEY as a psychotic, after seeing him sulk on an American TV chat show.

The filmmaker was casting for cult flick FROM DUSK TILL DAWN when George was best known for his part as DR DOUG ROSS on hit show ER.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO director Robert says, "I saw him on ER and I thought, 'He's just a soft doctor.' Then I saw him on a talk show, brooding 'cos he didn't like the host.

"I thought, 'That's the guy right there.' So I called him over and met him.

"He rode in on a Harley. He was like a man's man. I thought, 'This is the guy. He's not the soft doctor.' That's why I gave him the role."
