Though NBC has yet to confirm, it looks as though Dr. Doug Ross will be back in the ER before the series takes its final bow this Spring. According to Entertainment Tonight and RadarOnline.com, sources are saying that George Clooney — who played Doug Ross from 1994 to 2000 — will be filming scenes for the show this Thursday and Friday.
It has long been rumored that Clooney would return as a salute to the series that really jumpstarted his career, however insiders have been mum until now. Just last week, executive producer John Wells avoided answering a direct question on the subject, saying simply that Clooney is "very busy" and "very handsome."
And this week, the handsome guy is apparently busy reprising his role as Dr. Doug Ross.
Thoughts? How many people who abandoned ER years ago will tune in again to watch this blessed event?
UPDATE: Life and Style is reporting that Clooney's ER love interest, Julianna Margulies (Nurse Carol Hathaway), will be back to film scenes with him as well.
