GEORGE CLOONEY's latest film O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? is causing headaches for record store owners - who are constantly fending off fans eager to buy a copy of Clooney's fictional hit single.
In the COEN brothers musical Clooney's character, runaway convict ULYSSES EVERETT McGILL, records a single with his pals, MAN OF CONSTANT SORROWS, under the name THE SOGGY BOTTOM BOYS. But fans of the film have been taking Clooney's fictional singing debut a bit too seriously - and are trying to buy copies of the single in record stores. (LE/LADN/CPT)
