“We’ve been through a lot together,” the Oscar winner tonight told the Democratic Convention. Not George Clooney in person but his voice. The big supporter and fundraiser for Barack Obama narrated the short film that introduced the President to the stage in Charlotte tonight. Deadline has learned that Clooney recorded his voiceover yesterday in Los Angeles. Shown in primetime and on all the networks and cable channels, the 7-minute video included interviews with Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama and former President Bill Clinton. On May 10, Clooney held a dinner for Obama at his LA home that brought in a record breaking $15 million for the campaign. Late last month the actor attended a Democrats Abroad fundraiser in Geneva that raised $625,000. Here’s the video:
