The actor has been filming a new Hulu series in Sardinia, Italy.

His castmates include Hugh Laurie, Austin Stowell ('Whiplash') and Kyle Martin Chandler ('Friday Night Lights').

While George originally took on the role of Colnel Cathcart, he has now instead chosen to take up the smaller role of Scheisskopf instead, giving actor Kyle Chandler his original part. Instead, Clooney took a smaller role in the show in order to make it a smaller commitment.

A source told Page Six over the weekend that production on the limited series would be wrapping this week in Sardinia and moving to Rome.

The A-list couple are believed to have brought their parents to the Italian island to help care for the children while Clooney works.
