2C Reno Gazette-Journal Sunday, September 24, 1 995 BWenMlMBIT For George Clooney. life will never be the same n the day after the Emmys, which ended with surprise awards for "Chicago Hope" star Mandy Patinkin and "NYPD Blue," the phone rang at George Clooney's California home. "Loser's Headquarters!" proclaimed Clooney. In two words, Clooney proved that, despite an incredible year, the actor hasn't let fame go to his head. "I'm the same ol' George, just a little worn down right now," says Clooney, 34, whose second season on NBC's smash hit "ER" is underway. (10 p.m., Thursdays, NBC) "I could have used the summer off to catch up on sleep. But I did this movie, 'From Dusk Till Dawn.' "It's been a helluva year for me, not just a great year." So much has happened in the 14 months since Clooney strolled into a Los Angeles hotel -unnoticed and undisturbed - to show his father, American Movie Classics host Nick Clooney, the "ER" pilot tape during the annual TV critics' press tour. Today he can't go anywhere without being hounded by photographers and autograph-seekers. Northern Kentucky University's most famous dropout has been on the cover of Newsweek, GQ, Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide (twice). People magazine named him one of "the 50 most beautiful people in the world." He has hosted "Saturday Night Live," appeared on "Friends" and just completed a feature film ("Dusk") with "Pulp Fiction" director Quentin Tarantino. The kid, who grew up on his father's Cincinnati daytime TV variety shows, has been all over the dial: PBS' National Memorial Day Concert, CBS' Blockbuster Awards, Fox's Emmy Awards, MTV's Video Music Awards, TAKE HOME TODAY OR DELIVERY ARRANGED IMMEDIATELY If- 11 ATTENTION DEALERS: fSB(SnSSSP T Register At Desk & Show ggJi Jo-Jml Tax I.D.& Resale Numbers Illy IBSJIHJyLj tues lo'tiii s ' II EStferSErlSOFA & LOVE SEAT i.

He had managed to keep busy in Hollywood without becoming well-known, doing seven series in 10 years and making five films never released. "I managed NOT to get famous," he explained before the "ER" premiere last year. "You can always work if you're not famous." Clooney also has learned you can always work if you're really famous. He spent the summer shuttling between "Dusk' with Tarantino (who also wrote the film) and the "ER" set. "For eight weeks I did both. I'd shoot 'From Dusk Till Dawn' in Barstow (about 100 miles east of Los Angeles), then fly by helicopter or drive to Warner Bros. I'd finish shooting the movie at 2:15 a.m., and be at 'ER' for a 6 a.m. call. "I was literally at the point of exhaustion - and I usually have a lot of energy," says Clooney, who worked on his grandfather's tobacco farm after dropping out of college in the early 1980s. He used the money to buy a rusted-out '76 Monte Carlo, which he drove to his aunt Rosemary's house in Los Angeles to enter show business. In "Dusk," due out Dec. 22, Clooney and Tarantino play notorious thieves who kidnap a preacher (Harvey Keitel) and flee across the Texas border into Mexico, where they encounter a pack of vampires in a seedy saloon.

" George Clooney "ER"star Clooney says. "We're a couple of bank robbers - pretty bad dudes - although Quentin is a little more amoral than I am. We take Harvey Keitel hostage, and then it kind of turns into a vampire movie. It's as only Quentin can write." Clooney has less to say about "ER," wanting to keep the suspense for the second season. "ER" executive producer John Wells says "ER" will explore the family backgrounds of Dr. Doug Ross (Clooney) and Dr. John Carter (Noah Wyle). Dr. Ross also will date a variety of women this fall, Wells says. That's not unlike the past year, when Clooney was linked romantically to Frances Fisher ("Unforgiven") and Cameron Diaz ("The Mask"), to name two. For Clooney, the biggest change in the past year has been the loss of privacy.

But any restaurant I go to, any night I go out, some busboy or valet will make a call (to photographers)." "He has it all - the looks, the charm, the personality," says CBS Entertainment president Leslie Moonves, who headed Warner Bros, when Clooney appeared on "Bodies of Evidence," "Sisters" and "ER." "I said this guy is a television star, that he's going to become huge. And we kept renewing his deal (at Warner Bros.)" Moonves recalls that Warner Bros., was preparing two TV pilots simultaneously (a comedy and drama) for Clooney in early 1994. But Clooney bagged both projects and begged Wells to be hired for "ER." "I'm not surprised for George because I think he's very talented," says Sela Ward, his "Sisters" love interest. Ward remembers Clooney telling her about joining "this new show called 'ER.' And when I heard who the players were, and that Steven Spielberg and (author) Michael Crichton were involved, I said, "This is going to go through the roof.' And it has!" John Kiesewetter The Cincinnati Enquirer ADV ', ' Weight loss mystery puzzles researcher WASHINGTON -- A nutritional researcher's plan to end world hunger became side-tracked when people eating his "hi-tech" chewable food tablet lost weight. The reason for the weight loss is still somewhat of a mystery, but some results have been significant. Called Food Source One (FS-1), the low calorie food replacement, developed by National Dietary Research, never achieved its original goal of feeding the world's undernourished people, but has instead become a windfall for some overweight people. The revolutionary new formula includes an ingredient so unique that it has received a U.S. government patent. So why are some people losing weight with. FS-1 -- lots of weight? According fo Dr. William Morris, director of research and development at NDR, the Food Source One Plan allows you to lose weight without giving up your favorite foods. "While controlling calorie intake is important to lose weight, with the FS-1 Plan there are no forbidden foods", says Morris. Dr. Morris says that he has received some incredible success stories from people who have lost 70 pounds or more with the Food Source One Plan. One woman from Niagara Falls, New York lost over 70 pounds without giving up her favorite foods which included chocolate, pizza, and chicken wings. Although her results may not be typical (individual weight loss varies), the FS-1 Plan is a bona fide natural, drug free way of confronting the problem of obesity. According to an article published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, you don't even have to reduce the amount of food you eat to lose weight, provided that you limit the fat. 1994 Omicron International Food Source One is available: KEYSTONE DRUG 450 Keystone 329-2981
