The silver fox told People magazine that he wants his Hail Caesar! costar to receive the honor for a second time!
And the 54-year-old reminded the popular publication that he’s been pretty influential in the past, since he apparently helped Matt Damon lock down the title back in 2007, saying:
“Remember, I worked with Matt Damon and got him over the hump.”

“It was hard because he ran a good campaign but I’ll tell you what I’m going to do for you my friend, I’m going to take you under my wing, I’m going to bring ya home and next year I see a two timer coming in.”
The Magic Mike star seemed pretty excited about being a two-time champ, but Amal Clooney‘s husband explained that it’s not going to be a cakewalk!

The She’s The Man alum seemed surprised that he couldn’t just coast his way to victory, but George insisted that wasn’t the case, explaining:
“It’s a lot of work.”
