George Clooney portrayed which Packers player in Hollywood?
The 2008 movie “Leatherheads” starring George Clooney, John Krasinski, and Renee Zellweger was based largely on the life story of Green Bay Packers legend John McNally, known as Johnny Blood, who lived a life that deserved being turned into a movie.
“Leatherheads” is about a pro football player (Clooney) convincing a college star to play for the pro team to keep is solvent. McNally lived that plot in real life, which is why he created the fake name Johnny Blood – so he could play college football under one name and pro football under the name John McNally.
During World War II, the football star served as a cryptographer in India.
