George Clooney's 'The Ides of March': Ryan Gosling Struggles to Remember Evan Rachel Wood in New Clip (Video)

Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Philip Seymour Hoffman also star in the movie, which opens Oct. 7.

A new clip from George Clooney's upcoming movie The Ides of March hit the Internet on Tuesday.

In the movie, Ryan Gosling plays a young press secretary who falls prey to dirty backroom politics in the film. Clooney portrays the candidate for whom Gosling's character works, while Evan Rachel Wood plays a new campaign worker.

In the clip, Gosling and Wood are chatting about how she previously worked with him, but he clearly doesn't remember, so she decides to have a little fun with that -- while asking him to join her and the other interns for drinks that night.

Clooney directed the Columbia Pictures drama and co-wrote the script with his Smoke House Pictures partner Grant Heslov.
