Okay, so maybe things didn't go so well when George Clooney tried to play a hero in Batman & Robin, but now it looks like he's getting a second chance in real life.
Yesterday, a group founded by George Clooney announced that it's teaming up with Google, a U.N. agency, and anti-genocide organizations to launch "satellite surveillance of the border between north and south Sudan to try to prevent a new civil war after the south votes in a secession referendum next month."
Here's what Clooney had to say about it:
"We want to let potential perpetrators of genocide and other war crimes know that we're watching, the world is watching. War criminals thrive in the dark. It's a lot harder to commit mass atrocities in the glare of the media spotlight."
We wish U the best of luck with your peacekeeping efforts, George!
