Clooney Takes This Whole Up In The Air Thing To The Next Level In This Deleted Scene

If you enjoyed the Oscar-nominated Up in the Air but thought it could have used a bit more heavy-handed symbolism, I have six words for you: George Clooney in a space suit.

This deleted scene featuring Clooney wandering through an airport bedecked in the aforementioned get-up is, like most deleted scenes, probably best left on the cutting-room floor. It's an interesting look into an idea tried and then abandoned by the filmmakers, but the finished film makes the same point this clip does in much subtler and more effective ways. Still, you can't shoot a NASA-issue Clooney floating up the side of a building and not use it one way or another. Thanks for cutting it, guys, but also thanks for letting us see it as a special feature.

Up in the Air is available on Blu-ray and DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment.
