George Clooney for California Governor?

Another Hollywood actor may be setting his sites on being California governor.

The Daily Mirror reports the Democratic Party is courting George Clooney to run for governor in 2018.

The 53-year-old Clooney heavily supported Democrats in the past -- having rallied for Obama at the 2012 election.

Friends say his recent engagement to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddun, 36, "has boosted his credentials even higher."

The actor is also a well-known political activist and has personally funded his own drone spying missions to document human rights violations in Syria. 

Clooney has not made an official statement, but friends close to him say he’s turned down several long-term acting projects to pursue his political goals.
