Julianna Margulies and Don Cheadle call themselves F.O.G: Friends of George. The pair are former co-stars with the celebrated American actor and both presented him with the Cecil B. DeMille Award to honor Clooney’s contributions to the film industry. The presentation of the award took the form of the F.O.Gs bragging about which one was closer with George. Margulies pointed out that she had worked with Clooney on 100 episodes of ER, and added, “He’s a warm and caring friends to all he meets.”
Margulies grew up in a Jewish family, and her mother Francesca was a ballerina and father Paul was a writer, philosopher and a Madison Avenue advertising executive. She was nominated for best actress for the CBS drama The Good Wife. Noah Hawley won a Golden Globe for FX’s Fargo. TheLoopNY reports that they went to Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, one of the first colleges in the U.S. to have the arts on the curriculum. The college has a Frances Ann Cannon Workshop Theater, which is modeled after Shakespeare’s Globe, and is devoted to student productions. Marguiles credits her skills in analyzing scripts and building roles to her days at Sarah Lawrence.
