Clooney's Pranking Past
GEORGE CLOONEY once gifted actor RICHARD KIND a painting he rescued from the trash, claiming it was the work of a virtuoso artist. The renowned practical joker developed his pranking skills on the set of hit sitcom Roseanne, where he had a small role as factory worker Booker Brooks. Actress Laurie Metcalfe - who played Jackie, Roseanne's sister - recalls to New York gossip column PageSix, "He once found some art in a dumpster, and told his friend Richard Kind that he'd commissioned a painting for him from this up-and-coming artist. "Then George presented him with this painting. I think Richard still thinks it's from some classically trained artist.
