George Clooney is donning scrubs once more. The actor is returning to E.R., the series that transformed him into a household name. Clooney will reprise his role as Dr. Doug Ross. He shot scenes yesterday and today, according to Entertainment Tonight. Julianna Margulies is also reported to be reprising her role as Nurse Carol Hathaway.
Clooney initially denied that he would return to the medical drama during its 15th and final season, despite repeated requests from producers. Creator John Wells left the door open for Clooney to make a return, and the actor finally took him up on the offer. Clooney appeared on the show when it premiered in 1994 and exited in 1999. He last appeared in an uncredited capacity in 2000. The final episode of the series is slated to air on April 2, 2009.
