 Dont Look for George Clooney in the Flatiron
Lovin’ on the fans!

In case you’re hoping to win Gawker’s contest to get a cameraphone picture of George Clooney out in the city today, we can save you some trouble:

When we reported earlier this week that City Bakery on West 18th Street would be closed for the filming of a movie, we narrowed down the possibilities to two: Music and Lyrics By (starring Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant) and Michael Clayton (with star and producer George Clooney).

But signs posted on the partially-closed block confirm: it’s not George. It’s Hugh and Drew.
