When you think about George Clooney’s television career, “ER” might be the first series that comes to your mind — it’s even been tossed about as a possible show to reboot, though Clooney isn’t enthused about that idea. However, Clooney was slowly making a name for himself before he became an ace doctor in 1994. In fact, one of Clooney’s first claims to fame was on the one-season sitcom “E/R.” Much like the ’90s “ER,” this series featured a Chicago hospital. However, unlike the top-rated ’90s drama, the show “E/R” ran for only one season from 1984 to 1985. It followed Elliott Gould as divorced Dr. Shenfield and his antics as an on-call emergency room doctor.
Clooney joined the cast in episode 14 as Mark “Ace” Kolmar, an EMT related to Nurse Joan Thor, and he finished out the series with a reoccurring role in the last eight episodes. A lady’s man at heart, Clooney played an ER tech whose dating life provided plenty of antics. While the comedy had all the makings of something that could have been great, it flatlined with fans. On the bright side, Clooney and Gould would go on to star together in the “Ocean’s Eleven” film series.
