In the early episodes of the Roseanne TV show, there is a foreman at the factory where Roseanne worked named Booker. Was that role played by George Clooney?
—J. Burt, N. Tonawanda, N.Y.

Yes, that was a young George Clooney on Roseanne from 1989 to 1991. His very first recurring TV series role was on the emergency room comedy ER in 1984—not to be confused with the dramatic series ER, during which Clooney became a household name as Dr. Doug Ross 10 years later. Another of his early roles was on the sitcom The Facts of Life from 1985 to 1986.
