George Clooney's Girlfriend Gets an Acting Gig

Dating George Clooney definitely comes with perks! Italian television host Elisabetta Canalis is coming to American television. Sources tell Us Weekly that Elisabetta is in talks to land a recurring role on the third season of Leverage on TNT.

She reportedly met with the show's producers in January to discuss the potential role, which is a mysterious international secret agent. Guess she’s got the accent for it!

"She's very excited about the part as well as the chance to break into American television,” said a source.

Elisabetta met with George’s friend Richard Kind, who was on Leverage last season, and got her the meeting. "He told her what a great experience it was and how much he enjoyed it," the source added. "So when the opportunity came up, she was thrilled."

We hear Elisabetta may shoot some of her scenes while she’s here to support George for the Oscars next month. What a lucky lady!
