George Clooney plays a prank on Matt Damon

download It seems like the cast is having a great time on the set of the new movie, The Monuments Men. George Clooney is known for his practical jokes and his latest victim is Matt Damon.

George filled Matt’s backpack with heavy bricks for the hiking scene, while the other actors were carrying backpacks with lightweight padding.

GeorgeClooneyA source said: ”George got his idea for pranking Matt because he was so damn serious about working out every morning before shooting started. Bill Murray and John Goodman kept teasing him but Matt cracked that he’d be laughing when they didn’t have stamina for the tough hiking scenes ahead. That’s all George had to hear. He had the prop guys prepping packs for the hike fill Matt’s with solid metal bricks, weighing about 50 pounds. The other guys’ packs had lightweight padding but George told them to pretend they felt super heavy. By the end of the day Matt was sweating profusely. After the scenes were shot, Matt dropped his pack, opened it and everyone burst out laughing when the metal bricks tumbled out.”

The movie is currently being filmed in east England and it is scheduled for release on December 18, 20013.
