George Clooney asked to walk the wards of 'ER' once more

13 APRIL 2008
It's the news fans of ER have been waiting for the return of dishy doctor Doug Ross.

Hunky actor George Clooney has been asked to return to the hospital drama series which propelled him to international fame. The long-running show has its final episode next year and it's hoped the Michael Clayton star will come back for a special performance.

Among the ex-cast members who have also reportedly been approached is actress Julianna Margulies, who starred as George's on-off love Nurse Carol Hathaway.

According to Scott Grimes, who plays Dr Archie Morris in the programme, there is an "85 per cent" chance heart-throb George will return.

"He knows it's a historical show that's ending and he'd want to be a part of that," says the former Band Of Brothers actor. "He'd do it to help out the show because he's that kinda guy."
