If you’re a George Clooney fan, do you know about all of his tiny guest roles before he got famous? One such role was on the popular show The Golden Girls. His role in the show was a police officer named Bobby Hopkins and he was only on one episode during season two.
Before he was such a famous actor, he was just trying to get by. It is rumored that he asked his agent for this guest role so he could maintain his medical insurance. At the time, it was 1987 and Clooney was only about 26 years old.
