Clooney, 57, has been in Italy shooting a Hulu miniseries adaptation of Joseph Heller’s satirical World War II novel “Catch-22.”

In April, the streaming network announced that Kyle Chandler would replace Clooney in the co-lead role of Col. Cathcart in the series so that Clooney could concentrate on producing and directing the limited series.

Clooney is playing Scheisskopf, a training commander at a cadet school in California who is obsessed with winning parade tournaments and known as a general idiot who makes the enlisted men’s lives a living hell.

Christopher Abbott (“Girls”) stars as Yossarian, a bombardier for the U.S. Air Force during the war who faces a constant struggle of serving in the armed forces and doing what he must in order to survive.

Heller’s novel was previously adapted into a 1970 feature film starring Alan Arkin, Martin Balsalm and Art Garfunkel.
