We've followed the rumors about George Clooney's return to ER. We've glimpsed him back in scrubs. And tonight, we'll see Clooney again as Dr. Doug Ross in the role that made him a breakout star.
It's all part of a star-studded episode that features the return of not just Clooney but Julianna Margulies, Eriq LaSalle, and more doctors and nurses from County General's staff. I'm not going to lie — I maybe got a little chill when I saw the promo with LaSalle doing his little arm-pump thing in the hallway. Just really takes me back, y'know?
The episode is appropriately called "In Times of Old." NBC is being cagey about what exactly brings Ross and Hathaway back to Chicago (in fact, they're avoiding saying the name "Clooney" at all, referring to the guest star only as "the doctor Hathaway married"). Guess we'll find out tonight.
