My Leatherheads article (Starring Clooney, Zellweger, and Krasinski)!

It's here!

LOS ANGELES — Winston-Salem and Greensboro are getting the star treatment.

Last spring, the cast of "Leatherheads" — including George Clooney, Renée Zellweger and John Krasinski — came to North Carolina and South Carolina to film the football comedy. The film, which was directed and produced by Clooney, also featured a cast of regional extras. It opens in theaters Friday.

After filming in North Carolina and South Carolina wrapped up last year, we contacted Universal Studios to request a telephone interview with Clooney. They had a better idea: Why don't you just hop a plane and interview Clooney, Zellweger and Krasinski — in person? The Los Angeles cab fare was ridiculous and the jet lag was intense, but the chance to meet the actors face to face and hear their opinions of the Triad and its residents made the journey worthwhile.

I feel like I just got home from L.A. All my memories of the city are like tiny embers - snap shots from a dream I almost forgot. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy the story I wrote. Tune in to the show tomorrow. We'll be playing the tapes I made of Clooney and Zellweger, plus we'll be giving away some awesome Leatherheads loot.
