George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright: that sounds like a very realistic hypothetical list of Best Actor Oscar nominees some year, but no, these are the male stars of The Ides of March. Femme things up with Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood, and Clooney has himself helluva cast for his latest directorial feature.
