Whitney "Whit" Corley has a featured extra role in the film as one of Clooney's teammates on an old-time pro football team. He told News 12 the movie star handpicked him from about 1500 people who tried out for a casting call in Greenville, SC.

Corley has been a cook at City Billiards in downtown Aiken for the past four years. He says he spent about three months filming the movie and is in about ten scenes. Much of the movie was filmed in Greenville.
