George Clooney is starring in a movie called ‘Money Monster,’ and his character is clearly a play on Jim Cramer

“Ocean’s 11” stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts are costarring in the coming financial-news thriller “Money Monster,” directed by Jodie Foster.

Clooney plays financial-news personality Lee Gates, the so-called Wizard of Wall Street who hosts the stock-picking TV show “Money Monster.” Roberts plays Gates’ producer, Patty Fenn.

The show seems very similar to Jim Cramer’s “Mad Money.”

The plot centers on Gates, his crew, and Fenn being held hostage on live television by an enraged investor who lost money on a tech stock that Gates had pitched as a good investment.

The movie debuts in theaters in May.
