In Other News...Clooney, Downey Jr., and Eddie Murphy

The man, the myth, the — casino king? Ocean’s Eleven star George Clooney, the one-man Rat Pack Redux of the new millennium, has revealed long-rumored plans to erect a $3 billion Las Vegas resort. Named Las Ramblas, the resort will include a hotel, casino, and high-end condominiums; Clooney, along with partner Rande Gerber (nightclub impresario and husband of Cindy Crawford), plans to purchase a residence for himself on the resort grounds. The dashing bachelor hopes to bring back the style and class of old-time Vegas, back when Clooney-predecessors like Dino and Sinatra haunted the Strip. Before construction begins early next year, Clooney will have his hands full with two fall releases, as his self-directed Good Night, and Good Luck opens in October to be followed by December’s espionage flick, Syriana.

For those of you wondering what Keanu Reeves, Billy Joel, and Sting were doing hanging out together last Saturday, wonder no more. The three celebs were guests at the Long Island wedding ceremony of Robert Downey Jr., who wed producer girlfriend Susan Levin at a friend’s house in the Hamptons. The happy couple met while both worked on the abysmally received Gothika (he starred, she produced) back in 2002. Downey stars in two upcoming films this fall — Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang and Goodnight, and Good Luck — while his new missus follows this year’s House of Wax with the in-production, Hurricane Katrina-interrupted thriller The Reaping.

And finally, the latest in celeb-pairing hits the news as Shrek-voicer and all around stand-up guy Eddie Murphy was spotted canoodling with diva extraordinaire Mariah Carey last weekend in Miami. Murphy, who very recently filed for divorce from wife Nicole, met up with the high-shrieking songstress-actress (remember Glitter?) at a private party before the couple retired to the swanky Hotel Setai for the night. Carey continues to pursue a film career and is currently filming the female boxing rom-com, The Sweet Science, in which she plays — what else? — a female boxer.
