George Clooney created agent character for auditions

George Clooney was so desperate to land auditions at the beginning of his Hollywood career he created an agent character to do his own bidding.

The Descendants star was being represented by a "really c**py agency" at the time and he didn't think his agents were working hard enough for him.

So he took matters into his own hands.

He tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "I was dating a girl who worked at the agency. So I created this character, Josh Reynolds, who was an agent... I would call casting directors and pitch myself, and then when they would call back and ask for Josh Reynolds, the girl I was dating would call me and say, 'All right, you got a call from this person.'

"I would call back as the agent. I got myself a bunch of auditions."
