Ten years before NBC’s hit “ER,” young unknown George Clooney did a CBS sitcom called “E/R” in 1984 with Elliott Gould, Conchatta Ferrell and another young, unknown actor named Jason Alexander.
The future George Costanza played hospital administrator Harold Stickley. Clooney was Ace, an inexperienced EMT. Clooney was 23; Alexander was 25.
Did the cast think Clooney was bound for greatness? That’s the question I asked Alexander during my interview in advance of his performances with the Cincinnati Pops March 4-6 at Music Hall. The entire interview airs 7 p.m. Sunday on WVXU-FM’s “Around Cincinnati.”
