George Clooney says guten Tag!
The Good German star touched down in Berlin today looking like an ordinary tourist as he begins preproduction on the upcoming World War II-era drama he's cowriting and directing, The Monuments Men.
Dressed casually in jeans, Clooney was spotted outside the Concorde Hotel in the German capital's inner city borough of Wilmersdorf.
No word what his exact mission is while he's in town. But according to Deadline, the 51-year-old has just signed up Daniel Craig for a key part in the film about a group of art experts who rescue European works of art stolen by the Nazis before they can be destroyed.
The Monuments Men also features Clooney's Good German costar Cate Blanchett along with Bill Murray and The Artist's Jean Dujardin.
