ER Trivia:

ER was originally going to be a movie directed by Steven Spielberg. When it became the ER TV show instead, Spielberg did "Jurassic Park" instead.

The med-evac helicopter you've seen on the ER TV show is actually owned by the University of Chicago Hospital.

Episode #70 of the ER TV show titled, "Ambush", was aired "Live" (except on the West Coast) rather than filmed. This drew a huge audience. You could be sure that it was live because in one scene Doctor Ross (George Clooney) was in the break room watching a Chicago Cubs game against the Astros. That game was also being shown live at that time.

George Clooney appeared on another series a decade before this ER TV show. It was a comedy called "E/R (1984)! It starred Elliot Gould as Doctor Sheinfeld who is a physician at the emergency room of a Chicago hospital. Sound familiar? George Clooney's character was named Mark "Ace" Kolmar.

After seeing him in "Pirates of Silicon Valley", Steve Jobs (then CEO of Apple Computers) invited Noah Wyle (Doctor John Carter) to the MacWorld computer trade show. Noah went on stage and gave Steve's speech pretending to be him. Many people in the audience did not notice they were listening to the wrong guy!

George Clooney is not the only entertainer in his family. His father was a TV newsman who also was host of a talk show. His uncle was actor Jose Ferrer and his aunt was singer Rosemary Clooney.

Julianna Margulies was listed as a guest star in the first episode of the series. Her character (Carol Hathawawy) had attempted suicide and was meant to be brain dead, but they decided to "bring her back to TV life" and she became a regular cast member.

Here are a few more George Clooney facts:
He once tried out for a position with the Cincinatti Reds. He's scared to death of earthquakes (isn't everybody?). He was the very first guest on the Rosie O'Donnell show. He swears he will never get married or have children. He owns a pig named Max.
