Oscar contenders George Clooney and Brad Pitt have both recently appeared on Inside the Actors Studio to celebrate their successful careers in Hollywood (and talk about pranking each other), and while their charm is bottomless, Jean Dujardin and "The Artist" continue to gain momentum (this weekend's BAFTA wins include Best Actor, Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography). Perhaps Pitt and Clooney - who both dismiss notions of competition against each other - should join forces and plot against Dujardin? There's a genius video to be made here.

(On their PR rounds both Pitt and Clooney sat down with TOH, as well as such high-profile outlets as NPR (Pitt is here, Clooney is here.)
